MONDAY 10TH SEPTEMBER ::: LONDON
With the rise in popularity of the wellness industry, and with greater interest in social media and influencers, are we truly considering the effects our message has on the general population? Those who work in the wellness industry must be careful that their work is inspiring and educating their followers, not shaming or misinforming them and this can be a very fine balancing act. In this 2 hour talk we’ll hear from some of the industries most experienced voices on this very topic and learn how we can all be more mindful of the content we post, the message we promote and the advice we share. All profits from this event will be donated to Move Charity who are dedicated to supporting children & young people living with cancer through the power of exercise and sport.

The speakers are:
Laura Thomas PHD – Laura is a registered nutritionist, author of Just Eat It and host of the Don’t Salt My Game podcast. She is a woman on a mission to stop the onslaught of nutri-bollocks (nutritional advice that has no scientific basis) and has seen, and called out, her fair share of companies who immorally spread fake news to sell their products. Laura works with many women in her clinic who feel weird, and confused, around food and will be talking all about how we can be more mindful of the effect our content might have on these very women.
Anna Kessel MBE – Anna is a sports writer for the Guardian, author of Eat Sweat Play, campaigner and co-founder of Women in Football. Anna’s passion is promoting gender equality in professional sport, an area that has been so heavily dominated by men for many years. She is an incredible asset to womens sport but also writes so beautifully about racial equality, body confidence and how we can nurture the next generation of girls into loving sport. Anna will talk about how we can maintain a feminist standpoint with our messaging and ensure we are supporting gender and race equality in all that we do.
The Rooted Project – Rosie and Helen, of The Rooted Project, are both registered Dieticians with a huge passion for bringing evidence-based, easy to understand nutrition information. The information they give is rooted in science and based on facts, not fads. They will be discussing how those who work in the wellness industry can decipher between what advice is evidence-based, and what is simply anecdotal evidence or plain fake news.
Hollie Grant – Hollie is an award-winning Pilates Instructor and PT, author of The Model Method and owner of PilatesPT. Hollie is also the founder of ‘Athletics Not Aesthetics’. Hollie’s mission is to empower women to use exercise and sport as a way of improving their mental health, building new relationships and skills, boosting their confidence and breaking down gender stereotypes. She is anti-diet and a passionate feminist. Hollie will be talking about how fitness professionals can ensure they are improving clients health, not straining it, and how to be aware of the triggering content that can be posted and have a negative effect on the number of women getting into exercise.
There will also be juices, prosecco, goodie bags etc – all the good stuff.
