I met up with Sally Sykes at a networking event recently and she told me all about the Chamber and it’s events and activities. MAD is a well-established business in Suffolk, but we have recently taken a workspace at the medBIC at Anglia Ruskin University and are looking to expand our business in to the Essex area. I am based in Essex and we’re exploring all opportunities to network and promote the MAD brand and the Chamber seems like an ideal way to do that.
I help people rewire their minds and change unwanted behaviours, unhelpful beliefs and habits, improve confidence and deal with phobias. I do this in as little as 90 minutes, by working with clients’ own minds, their most powerful tool of all.
Having qualified as a British Wheel of Yoga Teacher in 2004, worked as a Career Coach, and also still working as a certified Mindfulness Trainer in the workplace and 1:2:1, I became increasingly fascinated with how the Mind works which led me to train as an RTT therapist. RTT gives fast results which has an immediate impact on people’s lives whilst Mindfulness is a lifelong practise offering peace in a frantic world.
I would like to join Brentwood Chamber to feel connected to the local business community and to learn more about local activities and participate in those, not just for growing my business but for being a more connected part of the community. I believe I have a lot to offer. Our communities are disappearing and I see the Brentwood Chamber as a very valuable resource in this respect. I also thought it was full of really nice people too that I would like to get to know more over the coming months and years. I will book onto January breakfast too, thanks for the suggestion.
