Women go through changes, whether by choice or by biology throughout their lives. This can affect them and can impact the workplace in a variety of ways. To support people, there needs to be a better understanding of what 51% of the population will go through.

To better understand, people need access to more information.

Learning and Teaching

Our Approach
We are a team. Each of us has experienced women's health issues differently in our lives and in our work. And we want to share these experiences with you. We don't assume we know how it is for you. We use our expertise to provide knowledge in a group setting, talking frankly and honestly and answering questions.

Who are we and what qualifies us to do this work?
We are Helen Robson, Dr Pippa Vickery and Vicki Hill: An executive coach, a GP, and a health and fitness expert specialising in women's health.

Please note. In order to preserve the learning and to ensure that the session is inclusive for everyone, we apply boundaries to the Q&A session. It is not a surgery, nor is it an opportunity to discuss individual cases. We are very lucky to have a GP in the team. Pippa is there to provide expert knowledge, not to give consultations nor field NHS enquiries.
