Hormones rule women from puberty until death, especially around the time of menopause. Most women have scant understanding of this period of chaos caused by the end of fertility. Outside of the fear of being seen as past it, suffering hot flushes in the boardroom or emotional tantrums over a teaspoon, little is understood about what the symptoms of perimenopause, when they show up and how will you know when you are in it; so you can learn to manage it.
A survey of 1100 women during 2018 revealed that 10% gave up work totally due to symptoms of menopause, more than 30% admitted to turning down a promotion because their confidence had disappeared, and 51% of women surveyed said they had reduced their working hours.
Hormones can play havoc with female careers, is this the true glass ceiling?
Freddy Carrick, author of Menopause Unzipped, will share her own story of despair and breakdown when she had no idea what was wrong and cried in the meeting room. As well as her research and experience gained from talking with women and family doctors over two years while writing her best selling book, Menopause Unzipped. You will learn:
- how not to get tripped up by your hormones
- how to prepare for and recognise when you enter perimenopause
- how to ensure your family understands and can support you
- how to be a menopause champion within your own workplace
Although few men will really want to attend, given this level of detail, they will learn a great deal about relating to all women if they do.
All are welcome
