Why I organised this event - Roz Thornton
After 20 years experience working at the grass roots with communities and corporate women in London, I learned that we still live in an unequal society and women are still bearing the brunt of: poverty, stress, work/life balance, financial struggles & domestic violence. I now run coaching and training programmes for women, which are making huge positive changes to their lives.
So many bad things are happening in the world, which are out of our control. I truly believe that by supporting & coaching women to be more intuitive and successful in the areas of confidence, careers and finances, we are supporting the whole community, the next generation and creating a better society in general. This event may just positively change someone’s life!
