Connecting Women Locally, Empowering them Globally
We aim to unite professional women around the world, regardless of their age, culture or race. To encourage them to stand in their power, invest in themselves and grow their skills and abilities by learning and leadership development.
We do this by providing a safe, caring and supportive environment in which women can get support and services; take part in events, training and activities and become active in bringing about change for themselves and the society.
Education leads to empowerment. We provide women with access to a wide variety of information, knowledge and opportunities to implement them so they can make the right decisions.
Global Woman Business Club helps women to build their confidence and belief that they can be successful in whatever they do. We help them build their brand
Supporting women’s professional and personal development through education and training
About Elisabeth Villiger Toufexis
At my first Global Woman Speaking Event in Zurich, I got to know Mirela Sula and all the pioneers of Global Woman and was deeply enticed by the concept. The idea of empowering women locally and connecting woman globally was something I felt very passionate about. I feel very strongly about encouraging women of any age, having brought up a daughter who is now 23 and teaching her that anything we set our mind to is possible. At the same time, I want to encourage women who are not so young anymore that they still have many good years ahead of them. Life expectancy is so much higher than it used to be, in 1841 a baby girl was expected to live just 42 years of age whereas in 2016 a baby girl could reach the age of 83.
I, myself, was born and raised in Switzerland and after a challenging childhood, decided to travel far away from home and start over by becoming a tour guide. For 11 years I worked all over the world and in the meantime, Ihave travelled to over 100 countries and speak 6 languages. I still work as an interpreter from time to time because I love using my languages and working with all these different nationalities. My most wonderful take away from all my travelling is that we are all the same, we all have the same needs for safety, we all seek happiness and we all try to avoid suffering.
After settling down in Cyprus and while raising my two beautiful children there, I started off on a more entrepreneurial venture, importing quality wooden toys from Germany and had shops all over Cyprus. I decided to end this chapter after 6 years as I wanted to be less tied down and have more flexibility with my time.
Through my work life and by being a mother, but also through my genuine interest in other people, I acquired a lot of peopleskills and wanted to use them to help others around me. I did this by becoming a Life Coach. Knowing that in order to be a good coach, I would need the right tools, I trained as a Life Coach, NLP practitioner and Hypnotistwhile working as interpreter for the European Police Association. It has now been 5 years since I became a certified coach and have helped many people change their lives. I am also a Reconnective Healing Practitioner.
As an international motivational speaker, I have been able to stand on many stagesaround Europe and the Middle East including Cyprus, Lebanon, Switzerland, Romania as well as in the United Kingdom for the Global Woman Summit.
Another passion of mine is putting all of my experience and coaching advice to words, which is why I am also the author of the book “The Soul Kit – First Aid for the Soul” which is also available as a video course.
