BOLD Goals

A global tribe of like-minded women who are interested in life, getting stuff done, and having fun along the way. Join us in 2020 for an adventure in dreaming, planning and doing!

Groups currently running in Oxford, London, and Hong Kong. View and book all events through our Facebook page.


Do you know what you want to be, do, or feel in 2020? At the start of the year do you get caught up in a frenzy of setting New Year’s Resolutions and then struggle to keep them? Or perhaps you avoid all mention of New Year’s Resolutions in conversation – you know they haven’t worked for you in the past.

At BOLD Goals Circles we aim to get the New Year off to the best start by taking you through a series of steps to focus on the things that really matter to you – and creating your own, personal and unique Vision for your life for the year. We step through the key areas of your life, reflecting, capturing, and projecting your ideas and dreams in order to create a Vision board and ultimately a few simple but “bold” goals that are sustainable, and most importantly, tied into your personal values and priorities. Only then can you start to take steps towards making them happen – and that is what BOLD Goals Circles is all about!

Our first themed workshop of the year is on Intention and it’s a great start to the year reflecting on how you want to approach the year ahead, which then builds out into a support and accountability group to help you make progress with your goals.

2020 is our 7th year of running the programme and we have seen huge success of our participants, setting and achieving goals, big and small, in all areas of their lives. Want to start focusing on what really matters to you? We’d love to help you – please come along to our kick off event for the year!

So, why is BOLD Goals for you?

The format and structure of the BOLD Goals Circles 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 and inspirational, relevant content –  Each of our monthly sessions is structured as a group coaching session, with a check in on progress against your goals and a check out with commitments for the month ahead. This provides accountability but also gives you visibility (and a reminder!) of your own progress, successes, and learnings along the way. The main bulk of each meeting will be driven by our inspiration themes. Our annual programme is structured by those themes each month, which are tied into the flow of the year, and drawn from our experience in working with women setting goals over the course of a year. The themes are relevant to the key challenges and priorities we have today, from setting intention and delving into motivation at the start of the year, to exploring our impact and pondering our connection in the middle, to reflecting on gratitude and celebration towards the end of the year. You will be challenged and inspired with reflection exercises and discussion to connect you, and others in the group with the theme, and use it to enrich your day to day lives.

Peer support – One of the most powerful aspects of our programme 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!

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.

But don’t just take our word for it – read our member testimonials here.

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!” NYRC member for 2016

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 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!
