WayFinderWoman presents… Work and Well-Being day

The Eastbourne based charity, WayfinderWoman are taking over Eastbourne Town Hall on Friday 21 June for their inaugural Work and Well-being extravaganza! Running from 9.30-4.30 entry is free. The Assembly Hall will be full of stalls promoting different types of health and well-being whilst in the Court Room there’s a series of renowned speakers talking about staying healthy within the workplace.

“We’re about helping women build their confidence and one of the first steps in doing that is to look after your own welfare”, said organiser Amanda Andersson.  “Often it’s in the form of a treat and so we’ve got 30+ stalls showing a variety of ways in which you can treat yourself.  From homeopathy to organic skin products, nutritional drinks to various types of massage; we have a sweet stand, reiki, various arts and crafts, styling and colour to lift your mood.   There’s a chance to find out how you can dress to impress using charity shop clothing and we have an extensive choice of teas, cakes and Higgidy Pies for those who fancy popping into our all-day café.”

If that’s not enough, WayfinderWoman have also taken over the Court Room for the day with 13 speakers giving their insights into how people can stay healthy at work.  “We want to work alongside employers too,” said founder Laura Murphy, “and with levels of stress rising in the workplace we wanted to give employers, and their staff, the opportunity for free training in how to generate and maintain a healthy workplace.”

Speakers include the Chief Executive of Eastbourne Unltd Christina Ewbank, who is talking about how to manage teams in a positive way, Judy Pearson from Southdown Housing exploring mental health in the workplace, Learn Direct about how to improve your skills, and Katie Day from RDP International about managing menopause in the workplace.There’s also insights into how to manage behaviours with speakers talking about the use of positive words, how laughter helps to defuse tension, how you can help the brain think effectively and other therapeutic interventions.

“Both the exhibition and the speakers are free to attend, it’s open to men as well as women, and you can drop in to any of the talks or visit the stalls at any time throughout the day,” said Amanda.  “Full details are available on Eventbright – just search WayfinderWoman presents Work and Well Being Day.  It helps us to gauge interest and to make sure we have enough cakes if people register their interest but it’s not essential.  Remember to bring some cash though for those cakes – and the Higgidy Pies!”

Sponsored by Carrot Events, Angela Marden Estate Agents, Custard Design and Draycott Corporation it’s shaping up to be a hum dinger of a day and one not to be missed!
