Sometimes things make you laugh and think. This video is a case in point. Grab a drink and ‘enjoy’ it.

Spring Seminars

As ever, we’ve been busy at Changing People thinking about new things we can do to promote the cause of gender equality and get the word out to as many people as possible. You already know I’m passionate about empowering women to overcome the hurdles they face at work and make the world a better place. We deliver  RenewYou in house, and open courses, and there is the global licensing scheme. The feedback is always really positive but one thing I’m frequently asked is could I do something shorter. Sometimes it’s just too difficult to get away from the office for a whole day, or if you have caring responibilities a day is too long. We all benefit from a quick burst of inspiration now and again, and a chance to meet like minded women and network.

I have listened and this is the result. In consultation with Arnos Vale cemetery, (don’t laugh, it’s a brilliant venue, honestly. Loads of parking, big green space, nice seminar room just by a cafe with the most gorgeous food, yet barely half a mile from Bristol Temple Meads station), we are offering two seminars for professional women this Spring. Both start at 10 and finish by 12 so hopefully that opens it up to many more of you. Plus, if you book both you get a free coaching session with me! Optional, obviously. We have kept the price as low as we can.

To make it even easier to book, we have put it all on Eventbrite for a change.

The first one is on March 6th and is called Understanding Menglish (or, more prosaically, communication differences between men and women). Details are here.

The second is on April 17th and is called Women, Be Yourself AND Communicate Effectively. Details are here.

I hope you can get along to one of them, be great to see you. Meanwhile, keep on being womanly wonderful! Gender equality will truly change the world for the better.

Meet New Old Friends – Making People Laugh Since 2008

Posted on February 12th, 2018 by

Now generally speaking I am not in favour of nepotism, obviously. However, when it is my family I am in favour, obviously. Do check out this interview with the madcap duo behind New Old Friends about to embark on a nationwide tour with CrimesUnder the Sun. Really funny and with a feminist twist…obviously!


Did You Know a Nod Can Be Gender Biased?

Posted on February 8th, 2018 by

Professor Mary Beard once said “We have not yet learned to hear authority in women’s voices’ and how right she is. In fact, even women often do not hear authority in women’s voices, such is the extent of our socialisation. Come and join me in two seminars to discuss the research on this topic and to ponder if it actually matters to you and your career.


February 6th 2018 – Full Gender Equality Next?

Posted on February 6th, 2018 by

It’s 100 years since some women got the right to vote. Well, 8.5 million actually. It’s been something of a slow burn but we’re getting there…albeit slowly. Still, 8.5 million women, that’s a cause for celebration! Full gender equality, how long?

Natalie Fee is an amazing woman. She heard about plastic pollution and like most of us was appalled. But unlike most of us she changed her life to do something about it. She is an inspiration. This is her talk at TedX Bristol. You will look at your toilet differently, I promise!


Newsflash – Mary Beard is in Lego!

Lego Classicists (a breakaway group!) have made a figure of Classicist Professor Mary Beard, and she thinks it looks just like her. What do you think? But who would Mary like to see immortalised alongside her? You can find out here. It’s a classic Mary riposte. Well done to her.
