A tribe of like-minded aspirational women who are interested in life, getting stuff done, and having fun along the way. Originally launched in Oxford in 2013, we are delighted to be running the Hong Kong tribe in 2019 – watch this space for confirmation of activity in 2020 – coming soon!
BOLD Goals offers a unique space for women to connect with themselves and each other to focus on understanding what is REALLY important in their worlds. This is about setting goals in the priority areas of your life – and sometimes that isn’t always work! Our unique approach uses a series of monthly workshops, inspiration sessions and social/creative events to create an accountability, as well as time and space for you to focus on YOU. If you haven’t been able to stick to your goals in the past, or you want to discover what is really important in your life so you can focus more energy in those areas, join us – you will see the incredible impact it has on your life! We focus on dreaming big, creating plans and then going out there and making it happen, all with the amazing support and accountability provided within this wonderful group of like-minded women.
So, why is BOLD Goals for you?
As a member of BOLD Goals you will benefit from:
– Regular monthly meetups, with specific content themed around the year
– Tried and tested reflection exercises designed to delve deeper into the things that really matter to you, and help you with action planning and commitment to change
– Worksheets to guide you through the process and monitor/track progress
– Access to our private global Facebook community, providing support and content throughout the year, connecting you with women on the programme in other global locations
The format and structure of the BOLD Goals programme means that you will benefit from:
Accountability – by committing to be with us for a year and accountability to your classmates through monthly meetups, you are more likely to stick to your promises and goals.
Structure – Our annual programme starts with a Dreaming and Planning session where you carefully lay out your resolutions for the year, and then using tools and rituals each month you will follow our tried and tested structure to guide you through the year. Each month has a theme with key content and exercises to get greater insight into your motivations and challenges. We create a Vision board at the start of the year and work with the board throughout, mapping your journey and gaining insights and clarity throughout the year.
Peer support – One of the most powerful aspects of BOLD Goals is the variety of women who come along. A wide range of experiences and backgrounds ensures that the conversations, ideas, and networks you are gaining access to is rich and exceptionally valuable. You could meet your next business partner or running buddy – or both!
Access to amazing content and expertise – The sessions provide a rich mix of personal development ideas and expertise. Either as presentations or video content from top experts in a variety of different specialties, to ideas offered from your peers, each month you will have access to discussions and presentations on an inspirational theme, along with discussions and exercises to complete as part of a reflection and action section.
A supportive and encouraging environment – we believe in the power of women coming together and exploring ideas, as well as learning and supporting each other. All our sessions are delivered in a safe and confidential environment where you are encouraged to stretch your comfort zone where appropriate and speak openly and freely without judgement.
All this, and you’ll create a delicious momentum in your life as you start rapidly achieving your goals.
“It has been inspiring and motivating being part of a group of goal-oriented women looking to grow, on purpose. It’s been a year of celebrating achievements small and large, regularly checking in on longer term goals and measurable milestones and finding time and space for ourselves. Thank you!” Previous BOLD Goals participant

Lynda Chen is the facilitator for our BOLD Goals programme in Hong Kong. Lynda came to join the BOLD programme as a participator during her MBA studies at University of Oxford. She was inspired by the Dream-Plan-Do approach that Annabel and Sarah developed to support women in BOLD and personally witnessed how BOLD has been transforming women in their day-to-day lives. Lynda, Annabel and Sarah shared the vision of extending BOLD to benefit more women and that she is passionate to bring it to Hong Kong her current home base!
Lynda is an experienced learning & development specialist, executive coach as well as a negotiation and strategy consultant. At her spare time, she enjoys to explore healthy and green lifestyle concepts. Lynda truly believes that “behind every successful woman is a tribe of other successful women who have her back” and is committed to help more BOLD women to achieve their life goals during their life-changing journeys with the BOLD Programme.
The History of BOLD Goals
BOLD Goals started life as the New Year’s Resolution Club, created in 2013 by Annabel Daly and Sarah Jordan, in Oxford, UK, and has been running ever since. Sarah and Annabel shared a vision to create a melting pot of all the things they love to do, harnessing their skills and talents they had nurtured over the years. The New Year’s Resolution Club was a manifestation of where passion meets purpose, and a way of bringing like-minded women together to work on their dreams in a creative and fun way, but also providing the support and accountability that is needed to ensure we stick to our plans.
After 4 very successful years, and in response to demand from women in Oxford and further afield, Sarah and Annabel decided to expand the ideas and approach that was being used in the New Year’s Resolution Club to other events and programmes, and , in 2018, BOLD was born. The annual goal-setting programme still sits at the heart of what BOLD deliver, and it’s now known as BOLD Goals.
As women, it’s important we give ourselves the time and energy we deserve to really focus on what is important to us. Our lives, those of those around us, and the world will be a better place if we can get it right!
