ARE YOU A
I See You
...head down, working hard, stressed, not seeing the wood for the trees, and exhausted from constantly fire fighting. I've been an entrepreneur for nearly 20 years, so I feel you!
As we approach the end of 2023, you might be reflecting on what you didn't manage to accomplish, or just how tough it was.
- But what if next year could be different? To have more success, but with ease and flow?
- What if in the next year, you could not only identify your aspirations but also turn them into reality?
- What if you could gain the clarity you need and receive the support required to reach your objectives?
- What if you could take the turnover of your business to an all-time high!
Then I would like to officially invite you to take a day out of the office and join us at our inaugural POWERHOUSE Women event. An exciting, new, quarterly retreat in Sussex for incredible women like you.
These events will bring together ambitious, high achieving female entrepreneurs to IGNITE their potential, hone their strategic thinking, and build a network that propels them towards extraordinary success!
You don't want to miss this!

Feedback From Our Last Event
"Where do I begin, the Vision Retreat was absolutely brilliant! It exceeded all of my expectations. I loved spending the day with you and the other ladies! I have come away with loads of ideas to adopt like gratitude, visualisation and more. I just wanted to say thank you!"
"I find it difficult to find others to talk to about my business, I have my husband and team to support me, but it's not the same as the intelligent conversations I had today with the other women. It was just what I needed"
"I had so many a-ha moments today, I can't even begin to tell you, so thank you so much! Can we do it again next week? Ha ha"
Meet Your Hostess
Hi I'm Natalie Montagnani, Founder & CEO of IGNITE.
I cut my teeth in big business managing multi-million marketing budgets, and did everything from hiring celebrities such as Jamie Oliver for a product launch to managing multiple PR agencies across EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa).
But despite the budgets and the glamour, I wasn't happy and I craved freedom and flexibility in my life and my work.
So in 2005 I took a redundancy package that was offered, as they were downscaling and closing the office I worked in, and set up my own marketing agency, Page Marketing. I wanted to work with passionate owners of start-ups and SME’s, and help them to realise their visions and grow using simple, yet powerful marketing strategies.
But it wasn't plain sailing I can tell you...I experienced all of the setbacks and barriers you can imagine - including a personal health crisis and the 2008 financial crash. But sometimes at our worst times, comes our greatest growth as an entrepreneur.
Understanding the importance of personal development and mindset was a complete game changer, and I even trained as an NLP Practitioner.
I then went on to successfully build a team, serve hundreds of businesses. Enabling me time to volunteer for the amazing Cherie Blair Foundation.
Then when I stopped to have my two little girls, I realised that I wanted to set up an organisation to support and empower women in business, specifically those in leadership roles, either c-suite or entrepreneurs, and so IGNITE was born.
I trust my intuition, always have and I feel that setting up this POWERHOUSE series of events is an important part of fulfilling my mission. I really hope that you can come along, as I think it's going to be incredibly transformative.
See you there!
