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!

An all-round healing experience

How time flies when you’re having fun! Hard to believe it’s been almost exactly a year since Sunita Passi joined the Girls Around Town to talk about Ayurveda and the launch of her new Neem range…

She’ll be back in the studio again this weekend, talking about the role of meditation in promoting mental health and spreading the word about ThinKNotts, an event taking place in Nottingham on Saturday 13 May.

Organised by Unplugged Space, a group of holistic therapists Sunita helped to create, its aim is to bring together over 1,000 people for a mass meditation in the city centre’s Old Market Square. With the chance to try yoga (including laughter yoga), sample holistic treatments and even take a dip in a sound bath also on offer during the day, it’s sure to be an all-round healing experience for everyone taking part.

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon on Sunday to find out more about ThinKnotts – and, with Homeopathy Awareness Week running from Tuesday 11 to Sunday 16 April, to hear Fiona explaining why, despite being 200 years old, homeopathy is still ahead of its time.

She’ll have details too of Just One Drop, a new film about to be released in the UK which sets out to help more people understand what homeopathy can achieve.
