You are invited to Mums4Work networking event - Women In Unity
This event is for everybody, why should the colour of your skin or your walk of life isolate you from being the best?
I am of mixed heritage, with a Black British father and Italian mother, and yes I have had knock-backs due to the colour of my skin. However when one door closes another one opens. Failure equals success, and we can all be successful woman together united as one.
Ladies come and start your day with a Pastry Breakfast Banquet.

Sherrie Eugene Hart - Co Author of The Carib-Asian Cookery Book Recipes and Rhymes.
Published by SilverWood Books
Award winning Broadcaster and now Author Sherrie Eugene-Hart has just co-produced a brand new fusion cookery book.
Sherrie first caught Bristol's imagination when she started Working on the nightly news programme HTV NEWS as the Sign Language Interpreter. She soon became a household name in the 80's and 90's and early 2000 where she ended up anchoring the nightly flagship news show. Today she continues to be a truly inspirational lady.
Over the years Sherrie has became a beacon for identity, understanding who you are, knowing where you come from and being proud of all of that, is a focal point for her. Sherrie has recently co-produced a cookery book with her husband called The Carib - Asian Cookery Book Recipes and Rhymes. This book is in-dispersed with rhymes and anecdotes of growing up in Bristol.
She describes it as a metaphor for equality, social justice, understanding and unity.
It's not just a cookery book, but a recipe for life.
Becky Barnes - Becky Barnes Stylist
Becky spent almost 20 years slogging away in the corporate HR career before she realised her heart wasn’t really in it any more.
It was time to make a change and try something a little bit scary in the hope of finding Becky's true calling. So Becky quit her job and, with the help of some incredible mentors, retrained as a personal stylist. Now Becky combines her passion for helping women achieve more than they ever thought possible, with a lifelong love of clothes. And Becky has not looked back since.
Becky is a firm believer that fashion isn’t frivolous; it can actually be life changing. Once you accept your true beauty and understand how to dress to make the most of your natural shape and colouring, there’ll be no stopping you. And it’s so much FUN!
