Putting health and wellness at the top of the agenda

It’s all about networking again this weekend, when Johanna Thompson and Kayleigh Langley join the Girls Around Town to talk about the meetings and events they organise for people working in the health and wellness industry.

They’ll be sharing details of the Wellness Network‘s regularly monthly meetings, currently held in Lincoln and Grantham, which bring together like-minded professionals to share best practice, make new contacts and create collaborations.

There’ll be news too of their plans to expand the group’s activities to other locations, a look back at some of the special events that have taken place recently and a look ahead to one on the cards for Sunday 8 September.

The Grantham Health & Wellness Show at the Urban Hotel runs from 11am till 3pm and visitors can take their pick from no fewer than 10 short talks on popular topics such as the facts and fiction of the menopause, green beauty, reflexology and how a boudoir shoot can help boost your confidence.

With various demonstrations on the programme, a range of stands to browse around and the opportunity to try different exercise classes, there’s something for everyone at this free event. And there’s even a goody bag for the first 100 people who register!

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon on Sunday for all the details from Johanna and Kayleigh. In the meantime, you’ll find more information about the talks here – places are free but they’re limited so you do need to register if you want to secure yours.

And if you’re quick, you just might be going home with one of those goody bags too…

Let’s connect!

Two women who know all about the power of networking join the Girls Around Town on this week’s show…

A single mum who started her business after winning a fight with cancer, Debbie Clarke works with female entrepreneurs to create financial freedom.

Sitting alongside Debbie in the studio will be Sue Godfrey who, through her business, coaches and mentors people, especially women, to lead healthier lives and grow in self-confidence and self-esteem.

They’ll be describing their own journeys and explaining how they now use what they learned along the way to help others build their businesses and become the best version of themselves.

High on the list of their recommendations is developing relationships with other women, sharing and celebrating success both personal and professional in a safe place where they can inspire and be inspired by what they say and hear.

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon on Sunday, when Debbie and Sue talk to Rosalyn and Rachel about the power of networking, about some of the groups they’ve founded and now run – and about how joining groups such as these can help you on the road to happiness and success.

There is a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women – Madeleine Albright, first female US Secretary of State

From bakes to makes

Two for the price of one again this weekend – as the first guest leaves the studio, another arrives for the second hour of the show…

Ever wondered who’s behind those bold and beautiful menu blackboards in your favourite coffee shop or restaurant? Or tried to find someone to custom-make a sign for a special occasion of your own?

Well, chances are at least some of those blackboards were Made By Mee – aka Marie Elizabeth Edwards, who’ll be talking to June and Rachel about her passion for creating freehand works of art that help make businesses stand out from the crowd.

And describing how her flair for design can add a personal touch to everything from the countdown to holidays and Christmas to weddings, christenings and home decor.

Given that Marie will be chatting to the Girls Around Town on Mothering Sunday, the other news she has to share is particularly appropriate.

As coordinator for the Newark branch of the Mums In Business Association, she’ll be hosting the group’s first event on Thursday 11 April, from 10am to 12 noon at the Roman Way on Lincoln Road.

Tune in or listen online from11am on Sunday to find out more about MIBA, an international community with almost 32,000 members worldwide, and what’s in store for Marie’s fellow MIBs at next month’s launch.

Tickets for the first meeting are already available online – if you’re a busy working mum, this child-friendly networking group could be just what you’ve been looking for!
