When you join the Lucidity Network you are joining a community of people who help each other to get results. You manage your own learning via webinars and monthly downloads. There are lots of ways to connect and accelerate your progress too; you could join a mastermind group, we can help you get a mentor or you might choose to buddy up with other members at a face-to-face event. Plus I’m there to help and encourage all members to go for it, stretch yourself and get the results you want. I’m really looking forward to welcoming you to the Network and helping you with your on-going success.

‘The Lucidity Network is about supporting me to develop myself, and meeting like-minded people to develop with. The masterclasses help me prioritise what I need to be focussing on, whilst the online support, Facebook updates and contributions from others in the Network remind and encourage me to put that learning into action. It’s like having a personal trainer and your own cheering squad urging you on!’

What others have asked before joining the Lucidity Network

I can’t afford it If you want to take the lead in building your career you have to prioritise YOU. The Lucidity Network is designed to be an affordable way to do this - if YOU really want to. Its £21 with an early bird offer or £210 a year. It's the equivalent of 2 coffee shop coffees a week. It's your choice of course but if you want to kick start your own development and get some better results for yourself then its a steal.  

I really want to join, but I can't persuade my manager it's a good idea Is that because they have no budget? Can you be creative about which budget line it comes from? Will your manager sign it off as a test? We are so confident that the Lucidity Network makes a difference to your results that if you take the actions that we recommend and after 3 months see no benefit we’ll give you your money back. 

I can’t buy online I need to invoice That’s no problem, drop an email to and we’ll arrange an invoice for you.  

I'm so busy at work I don't know how I will find the time That's up to you. If you’d like to get better results then you’ll need to invest a bit of time. We’d suggest finding 2 hours a month as a minimum. The more you put in the more you’ll get out.

What if there isn't anyone from my industry or sector in the membership? It’s a good thing! The mix of diverse experience, and different people and sectors is part of the Lucidity Network’s value. Plus if you’d like to invite more people from your sector ask us about our recommend a friend offers by emailing 

I’ve not done anything like this before Try the Lucidity Network for 3 months as a test. If you take the actions that we recommend and get no benefit we’ll give you your money back. Sometimes with something new you’ll only really know if it’s for you if you give it a go. 

I’m not on Facebook so I’ll lose out The Facebook Community is a big part of the Lucidity Network. It’s the place to connect directly with other members, ask questions and learn. It might be worth considering setting up a Facebook profile just to interact with the Lucidity Network. However if you choose not to, you still get all the content including downloads, webinars and events as well as mentoring and mastermind groups.  

What happens if the topics aren't what I need? We pick topics based on what we know can have a big impact on peoples results based on our skills and experience. We also ask the network, what their biggest problems are as well as what they think they need on a regular basis to ensure that our topics are relevant. You can get in touch at any point with topic suggestions at

'What the Lucidity Network has taught me really early on is how important it is to continually carve out time to invest in our own reflections and learning. I can’t wait to dive into the areas where I am keen to develop myself. The packs and webinars are engaging, user-friendly and they encourage action, the additional resources are rich and varied, and the Facebook group is lively and friendly. Bravo!'

Catherine Raynor, Director, Mile 91
