Zooming in on health and hospitality

Things were very different when Johanna Thompson first joined the Girls Around Town to talk about the meetings and events organised by the Wellness Network for people working in the health and wellbeing industry.

Back in September 2019, she and Kayleigh Langley were both in the studio chatting face to face with June, something that’s definitely off the agenda these days of course.

But that’s not stopping her bringing everyone up to date with the group’s activities this Sunday, when she’ll be on the phone from just after 11.20am with all the latest news…

Like many groups in the region, around the country and across the world, their regular meetings these days are now held online. And they’re on Sunday mornings too, from 10am to 11am, so no doubt Johanna will be talking about the one she hosted while June was busy bringing you the first hour of your favourite weekend show here on 107.8FM!

If you work in the hospitality business, you’ll definitely want to hear what she has to say about new meetings in the pipeline designed specifically for you. With special guest speakers sharing ideas and offering support, they could be just what you need right now and they’ll be absolutely free to join.

Make sure you’re tuned in or listening online to find out more about these and other upcoming Wellness Network meetings…

And don’t miss the latest news about a very special event taking place on Sunday afternoon, when Radio Newark joins forces with the town and district councils, local artists and local schools to bring you live on air and online coverage of Newark’s Virtual Christmas Lights Switch On!

Networking – the new normal

Do you rely on networking to build your business? And have you been struggling to succeed during these strange times?

Next weekend’s guest on Girls Around Town is here to help!

Publisher, author and motivational speaker Ladey Adey joins June on the phone in the second hour of the show to talk about how online networking has saved many businesses.

And how her latest book, Successful Business Networking Online, could help do the same for yours…

“Lockdown has changed business networking forever – no one could have predicted this new normal,” she says. “But this swift transformation has created huge opportunities for those smart enough to exploit them fully.”

Alongside over 100 interviews with super-successful business owners and seasoned networkers, the book unlocks critical secrets to guide you through the principles that will help you

  • Become successful using online networking post Covid-19
  • Discover the strategies needed to guarantee your professional success
  • Understand the difference between online and in-person networking – and it’s not just technology!

Tune in to 107.8FM or listen online from 11.20am  to hear what Ladey has to say – and make sure you join June from 10am to catch all the usual gossip and good music on your favourite Sunday morning show!

Let’s connect!

A packed house in the studio this weekend, with no fewer than four guests joining June and Claire from 10am on 107.8FM

If you’re a business owner or a professional operating in the food and drink sector, you’ll want to hear what Leisa Pickles, Becky Dobb and Francesca Tricarico have to say in the first hour of the show.

They’ll be sharing details of a brand new B2B event coming to Newark that’s all about networking – a familiar topic on Girls Around Town but with a bit of a difference this time around.

An opportunity to meet up with others in the same sector, Making Connections in Food and Drink is tailored specifically to businesses and individuals working in and around Newark who want to share knowledge and ideas, discuss collaborations and even showcase their products during the evening.

The event runs from 6pm to 8pm on Wednesday 4 March and takes place at Ann et Vin on Castlegate. Whether you just want to mix and mingle with like-minded professionals or want to book a stand for the evening, Leisa, Becky and Francesca will have all the information you need.

And if you’re a serviced-based working mum – think coaches, consultants, therapists and the like – be sure to stayed tuned for the second hour of the show when it’s Gemma Gilbert‘s turn to talk about getting connected…

Just like many of the guests interviewed on the the show, Gemma’s a working mum herself and, as a business coach, her aim is to show her clients how to grow the businesses they love and attract all the customers they can handle without sacrificing time with their families.

She’ll be describing some of the strategies that have worked for her and talking about her Facebook group Mummy’s Got Clients, a place where members can ask questions, get help, collaborate – and of course connect!

Tune in to 107.8FM or listen online  from 10am to 12 noon on Sunday for all this and more from Leisa, Becky, Francesca and Gemma – and from presenters June and Claire as well!
