Menopause Presentations in the Workplace
A presentation within a workshop/cafe with those employees who are, or have been, affected by the menopause and who wish to hear my relatable story, discuss symptoms and how their symptoms affect their home and working life. Workshop/cafes last for approximately 1-1.5 hours with a maximum attendance of 8 employees at a time. This will allow all employees time to engage with others and be heard.
Informative presentations are relevant to all employees of all ages and genders. Attendees can include women experiencing the menopause, employees working alongside women experiencing menopausal symptoms or others who just wish to gain further knowledge. The informative presentation is a 45 minute talk and a 15 minute Q&A session.
A presentation aimed at employers/managers, which is informative but also provides practical guidance on how to support and manage employees going through the menopause. This presentation is a 45 minute talk and a 15 minute Q&A session.
A follow on presentation addressing self care. I provide information about how I have changed my diet/nutrition to reduce symptoms; skin care; sleep and a 15 minute starter session of mindfulness. This presentation will last approximately 1 hour.
I also provide presentations, coaching and support in the home and community for those requiring support outside the workplace.
