Key Speakers:

Helen Walbey is the Federation of Small Businesses Policy Portfolio Chair for Diversity and heads up their women in enterprise taskforce. She is the Managing Director at Recycle Scooters and Bikes, the only women in the UK to own and run a motorcycle salvage yard. She exports parts globally. A mentor with Virgin, she lectures part time at the University of South Wales’ Business School. She has a rescue dog and an allotment, where she mainly digs random holes and calls it gardening.

Anne Hope is an expert in natural approaches to women’s health, specialising in homeopathy, meditation, yoga and hypnotherapy. Helping women to transition and grow is a major part of her work. Women live through many life changes, but don’t always put themselves first and look for something that could really make these changes positive and wonderful. As a lecturer and psychologist she enables people to grow and develop emotionally and spiritually – finding peace and confidence and knowing the power that this brings. She is the author of two books, 10 things about fertility that could change your life and Menopause: survive & thrive – an ultimate guide.

She has over 30 years experience in public relations, marketing and management, and has taught in higher education in the US and UK. Her books, the Public Relations Handbook and the Public Relations Strategic Toolkit, are used on UG courses throughout the UK and have been translated into several languages.
