In April I’ve been invited to speak at the FitPro LIVE event in London. The biggest UK conference for the fitness industry with the best speakers in the world. I’ll be on a panel directed by Fitpro director Jane Waller, with Jacqueline Hooton (Educated Fit), Katie Bulmer-Cooke (twice PT of the year and BBC’s Apprentice candidate 2014) and Mary Huckle (PT and breast cancer survivor), where we’ll be discussing the female factor: How to reach your clients and take your business into 2017.
On 12th March I’ll be an expert at the Women in Fitness Empowerment (WIFE) in business day in Reading. Where we’ll be helping women in fitness break through barriers in their business
I presented at Women In Fitness Empowerment (WIFE) conference on 19th September about life as a fitness writer and sharing tips on how to write to help your fitness business.
In August our whole family took a trip to West Sussex where I took part in a Women In Fitness Empowerment (WIFE) campaign, #AWomansWord with my daughter. The campaign is all about empowering our daughters, friends, mums and aunts to feel more confident in their bodies. It’s about noticing the loaded words we use which don’t serve us. It’s about self-esteem and body image.
I co-directed the first Epping Forest Baby Show with Natalie Goldsworthy. We’d first met via the NCT and both had the idea of putting on a truly local event where businesses, mums and local health organisations and charities could be together under one roof.
The Epping Forest Baby Show was aimed at mums-to-be and mums with new babies. It was wonderful to have the local health visiting team, the breastfeeding network and the local children’s centre all exhibiting along with businesses like Baby Sensory and Waterbabies.

I was asked to speak at an event hosted by the Breast Cancer Care team at St Margaret’s Hospital. The event was open to all women who have been through breast cancer, specialists and medical professionals in the field. The event was part of a local initiative, led by Lead Breast Cancer Research Sister Ruth McCrea, to encourage women to get into regular exercise during and after treatment for breast cancer. I spoke about the benefits of exercise and how it can be used as medicine.
“Thank you for you very inspirational and motivational talk this morning – so many women felt inspired by the contents of your talk” Caroline Baya Macmillan Specialist Breast Care Nurse”
“Thank you for your charismatic and inspiring talk” Ruth McCrea Lead Breast Cancer Research Sister (Breast Unit)”

I was selected as a finalist for the What’s on 4 Little Ones awards for my work in pre and post natal health and fitness. I’ve been teaching pre and post natal mums for the past ten years and am the local expert in this area running classes from ante natal through the post natal Pilates and beyond.
