"Off the Fence with our Women's Centre in Portslade, Gateway, invited Ali Booth of Ocean Breeze Wellness to come in and provide training on the Menopause and the workplace on the 7th March 2023.
- The session was well attended by 75%+ of our staff including men and women.
- The talk was powerfully delivered, included personal stories and experiences and was therefore very relatable.
- The slide presentation was informative, well set out and easy to absorb.
- Ali was kind enough later to forward a virtual handout of the key slides
All in all, it was an enjoyable, insightful talk, packed full of detail and brilliantly delivered. The response from our staff (women and men) was very positive and Ali kindly stayed behind to ask all the questions raised. If you haven't already had this discussion in your company, get more women into the boardroom and get the conversation going!"
"As part of our celebration of Women’s Month (March) we wanted to bring awareness to our workplace on the effects of Menopause, so we invited Ali to one of our lunch and learn sessions where she presented an informative and eye-opening session on the possible effects of peri-menopause and the menopause.
Ali shared ‘her personal story’ which was a great way to open, making it an easy and open discussion later on in the session for others to share some of theirs. We have had great feedback from those that attended saying this was Insightful, Informative & helpful, some a little shocked at how many possible symptoms there are and the range in severity. Many questions were raised during the session, most of which Ali was able to respond to straight away and others were answered later and shared with the group.
With diversity and wellbeing high on our agenda this was a great discussion, as we continue to improve an open and inclusive culture within the workplace.
Thank you Ali for getting us all talking so openly about a subject that has been ‘in the dark’ for far too long"
"On the 7th March Ali came to our Centre to deliver a brilliant talk on Menopause and the Workplace.
The reception our 17 staff gave her was very positive, with many (including the blokes) saying how much they had learned.
If you haven't asked Ali to visit your workplace and talk to your staff, do it quickly before she becomes an out of reach celebrity!"
