“The reason I attended the Swedish Chamber of Commerce Women Business Leadership Program was that after nearly a year with Corona/Lockdowns I wanted to make sure to keep my energy level high and hoped that attending the program would help me (to give some tips/guidance). Your program encouraged me to make some changes through small steps that had a positive impact on my energy level and overall wellbeing.”

The Swedish Chamber of Commerce Women Business Leadership Program is tailormade to personal needs and will help you identify the obstacles to your success, as well as guide you towards becoming the best version of yourself – both as a leader and in your private life. Despite being successful in their roles and producing positive results, many business leaders and professionals experience a lack of confidence, low energy levels, stress, and fatigue. They often feel as though they are not being heard and are unsure of themselves and where they are heading. Many leaders feel both physically and mentally drained because they do not take care of their bodies and mind.


With the Swedish Chamber of Commerce Women Business Leadership Program 2022, we offer 4 events spread over the year with 4 different topics to find your leadership identity, empower yourself to be fit to lead, and learn to use your network. You are welcome to sign up for all 4 events or individually for the event that you are interested in attending. You will be working towards your personal goals and developing your leadership skills and you can get a better idea of what changes you need to make to live your best life. All programs include coaching by Malin Hedlund who will give you the theoretical background information you need, provide practical exercises, facilitate teamwork and individual tasks, and exercises to practice in your environment until the next session. At each session, you will also meet an inspirational speaker or role model with a close connection to the topic.




“Participating in the Women Business Leadership program, provided by Malin via the Swedish Chamber, has been a great help in my daily life, both private and business-wise! It has provided me with tips & tricks to be better aware of why I do things the way you do them, and if needed how I might be able to change/improve. The term “ant-steps” is one that often comes to my mind. I really recommend you to join a session!

If you are not able to do all four, one is more than not at all! But I’m sure if you go for one you will most likely want to join all sessions. I always leave these sessions with such a positive boosted feeling.”

Pernilla Guitink-Svensson, Process Improvement Professional at ASML
