"I joined WIT program, after having sold my business, looking for new opportunities. The program and the tribe inspired and supported me to be better equipped in my new business, and it continues to do so. I can honestly say that this has been the best investment ever in my life!"

Women in Transition - community


WIT will connect you with some of the smartest, most empowered women in Bali’s business ecosystem, so you can learn from the people who have lived the experience you are about to embark on.

Hubud Creativity


Bali is renowned for being a place where you can dream big and really make things happen. WIT supports you in the process of grounding those dreams in reality without sacrificing the vision, purpose and passion that drives you.

WIT Conversations


A great conversation can change everything… especially if it gives you the valuable feedback you need to get results you desire. WIT uses the ‘Challenge Process’ to troubleshoot the problems as they arise and make conversations really count.

WIT Coinciousness


When a group of smart women are gathered in the name of GOOD, great things can happen: People’s lives improve, projects that protect the earth and its people or, lead the way into the future are born.

Her motto is: work with yourself rather than against yourself.

Her areas of intervention go from helping people willing to implement meaningful shifts in the way they currently live and work (because not everybody has to quit their job and completely change life to be happy), to supporting people who took the decision to take a sabbatical or even a complete career change.

What will I learn?

WIT follows a curriculum that is partly curated, and partly responsive. That means we aim to share what we already know will be of value, but try to be responsive to the needs and desires of the group as they emerge.

We talk about taboos, in a confidential and deeply supported way, so that you can... 

  • Explore your passion and purpose, and whether you can turn them into profit.
  • learn to give it, and receive feedback. 
  • how to resolve conflict, with others, and within yourself. 
  • What self-care really is.
  • How to connect to your community.
  • Why money matters, and what really counts. 
  • How to break through the blocks that may prevent your successful transition to a life you really believe in. 

What is my commitment?

WIT is an intensive experience. Days begin with movement, and end with evening activities. 

By joining the WIT tribe you commit to the values of Community, Creativity, Conversation and Consciousness. 

But as with any learning program, WIT is what you make of it. The more time you spend putting the lessons, tools and concepts you learn and make to work, the better your results will be.

Is WIT only for people moving permanently to Bali?

No! WIT will be of benefit to anyone in a work-life transition, however, you will need to be on island for at least the duration of the course to get the most out of the program. The projects and businesses selected can be run either on or from the island.

How will I know if I qualify for the program?

Once you fill out our registration form, you will be contacted for an interview with one of our main facilitators. In the interview, you will learn more about the program, and together, you will determine whether it's a good fit for you.

Why is this program for women only?

Because women are awesome! :-) Women face unique challenges and opportunities in the business world, and we find that women progress further and faster when they are supporting each other.

How many participants will there be in the program?

How many participants will there be in the program?

The maximum number of participants is 20. It's intimate, and every woman will have voice.

Are there any scholarships or bursaries that I can apply for?

We have endeavoured to offer WIT at the most affordable rate possible, so at this time, there is no official financial aid for this program.


We'll send you all the juiciest news from our coworking world. Don't worry, we'll only send you the good stuff.
