NOVEMBER 9, 10 & 11, 2017




THE BIG BOLD EVENT has one very clear mission – to completely transform your mindset and your business within 3 days amongst a community of aspirational, purpose-driven entrepreneurs.

If you have a desire deep within you to make the world a better place and to be an inspiring role model for leading with integrity and excellence then you are in the right place.

We will teach you the most innovative methods for:

  • Unleashing your leadership potential

  • Creating financial abundance

  • Navigating fear and taking courageous action

  • Mastering the next stage of business growth, and

  • Living life on your terms

It’s our mission to empower you to live boldly and play a much bigger game in business so that you can have the impact and lifestyle you desire.

The world needs what you have to offer. The world needs you to step up NOW. It’s time to BE BOLD. PLAY BIGGER.®

You went into business because you wanted to make a difference in the world – you wanted more freedom, more meaning and more money yet you now find yourself working harder than ever, feeling trapped and not seeing the kind of results you’d like to in your bank account.

It’s frustrating because you know you could do so much more but you lack a clear roadmap to get you there. You don’t know exactly where to start and you’re not sure where to focus your best efforts. It’s tough when you’re trying to figure it all out by yourself and it’s a lot easier when you can lean into somebody who’s already walked the path before you and knows the best route to getting you there quicker.

The truth is many people dream of success but few are willing to do what it takes to get there. It takes boldness and courage to turn your own passion for helping others into a profitable business. This is what THE BIG BOLD EVENT is all about. It’s about giving yourself permission to be wildly successful beyond what you have previously thought possible.

A business can only grow by the amount a business leader is willing to grow themself…

– Vanessa Shaw





Be willing to do what others won’t in order to live a life others can’t…

– Vanessa Shaw

– Henry David Thoreau

BIG BOLD EVENT Testimonials

  • “I was pretty stuck and concerned about what direction to take in my business before the Money Breakthrough coaching with Vanessa Shaw. I had so many ideas swirling in my head that I couldn’t figure out which was the best way to go. Also, I wasn’t earning enough income to make ends meet or enough to save. During the coaching session, I became acutely aware of some past negative beliefs that my family had about money, and I was shocked to find out how those beliefs were keeping me from earning the income I want today. I loved that Vanessa was so completely in tune, aligned, listened and heard me, and then almost magically, through her gentle questions, the answers came to me with complete ease. I am so happy about my new expanded possibilities now that the previous stress and pressure have gone. Vanessa’s coaching was far beyond what I’ve ever experienced with any coach. Since being in the Programme, May was a banner month for me. I more than doubled my income AND got 5 new clients!! The logjam has been released. It’s all happening now and most importantly, I KNOW I can do this!!”
    Kaveri Kathleen Sohnfoster, Savvy Solutions E-Newsletters
  • “Before coaching with Vanessa, I struggled with raising my rates and charging what I was worth. She was not only able to access the mindset blocks that held me back, but she also provided practical ideas to move my quickly into my higher rates. I’m now charging 300% more for many of my programs and I no longer struggle with the value I deliver. If you need help building your business and growing revenues, I highly recommend Vanessa!”
    Jason Hartnov,
  • “In less than 3 months of working with Vanessa Shaw, I am amazed at just how much has been achieved for our company. We now have greater clarity on several areas of the business and an ideal client programme has been implemented. Also we have improved communication within the team, far more effective use of time on income-producing activities and dramatically increased levels of referrals. This has been the most profitable period that we’ve had in our business year to date and one that has happened during a shocking economy. The growth to our bottom line business has been 30%.”
    David Cooper, Director, Fund Advisers Europe,
  • “I loved Vanessa’s course. It inspired me to radically change my business model from one-to-one coaching to group coaching. It’s working brilliantly! I love working one-to-one but if I wanted to grow my business, there would always be a limit if I exchanged time for money. By focussing on how I can deliver excellent content to lots of people, I am coming up with ingenious ways of delivery – and last month, created a course where over 90 people joined in one day. The power of the group to help and support each other is incredible. Seeing other people facing similar challenges allows my clients to realise they are not alone and not ‘crazy’. We are building a brilliant, supportive, honest and kind tribe that are championing each other. It’s everything I wanted my business to be.”
    Suzy Greaves, author of Making The Big Leap, ‘top ten guru to change your life around’ (Daily Mail)
  • “Vanessa is an amazing business coach and entrepreneur who I would highly recommend to anyone serious about success. Her clarity of insight and intuition enable her to cut through the most complex issues. As a result of partnering with Vanessa she has had and continues to have a direct impact on our business resulting in tens of thousands in additional income, more free time and excitement about what we are creating for the future. As a business Coach myself I can honestly say she is a tremendous asset to anybody who is serious about growing their business.”
    Rich Campe, CEO,
  • “Before I started working with Vanessa, I was struggling in several parts of my business. I was working full-time and trying to get my coaching business off the ground. In addition, I wasn’t attracting the right clients, I wasn’t charging what I was worth and my confidence had faded. Vanessa helped me to increase my confidence… I feel like I can do anything. In less than 5 months of working with Vanessa, my business has grown exponentially, I left my full-time job, I am choosing the clients I want to work with, and I have increased my rates by 3 times the amount I was previously charging! Vanessa is a spectacular business mentor and honestly, working with her has been living changing for me!”
