Ahead of Her Time - Judy Piatkus In Conversation with Gina Lazenby

What does it take to become a successful female entrepreneur – and book publisher?

Join one of the UK’s most successful female entrepreneurs and thinkers to explore her thoughts on entrepreneurship, publishing, working parents and the personal growth movement.

The name of publishing company Piatkus Books is synonymous with new thinking about alternative ideas. In this unique event, self-made entrepreneur, Judy Piatkus will share insights and reflect upon how she founded her company in the spare bedroom of her home at a time when there were very few women in business, how she grew it to be a global success, how and why Piatkus came to be known as pioneers in the personal growth movement and how she sold the company successfully to Little Brown before the great crash of 2007/8 which Piatkus had shrewdly foreseen.

There will be a Q&A afterwards.

Life Metaphor: Where Am I In My Life And What Is My Next Step - With Dr Gina Glouberman

Join us for a workshop with Dr Dina Glouberman, renowned for her work with imagery, and learn how to benefit from this powerful technique.

When you’ve been spun around or shaken up for a while, it can be hard to get your bearings, but it may also be a good opportunity to rethink where you are going. This is what this extraordinary year has done for so many of us.

If you are asking yourself where you are right now or where you are going, this question is not so difficult to answer if you are willing to go beneath the surface to find out “what you know but haven’t told yourself”.

The easiest way to do this is by getting an image that is a metaphor for “who you are or what you need to know at this moment in your life”, and then exploring it, understanding what is really going on, and discovering what your best next step can be.

This is what this experiential Imagework course can help you to do, first for yourself, and then for clients, colleagues or friends. The image may be astounding, or funny, or indeed, very serious, but it is always enlightening. Often its source is in the past and needs to be transformed in the light of the present moment. Once you have done this, you will find yourself naturally set on a course that expresses who you are today.

This is a wonderful all-purpose imagery exercise because you can also use it in future to get a map of a specific problem--at work, at home, or in relationships. You’ll find yourself using it, as I do, as a go-to exercise whenever you need a bit of help to understand what’s happening below the surface, and how one can move beyond it.

Do take the opportunity to work with Dr Dina Glouberman, world renowned for her work with imagery, and to benefit from this timely and powerful course.

The 3 Takeaways You Will Get From This Event

  1. A golden opportunity to find out where you are and what your next step can be.
  2. A chance to update out of date images or templates that are guiding you in the wrong direction.
  3. An all-purpose imagery exercise you can use again and again to solve problems and to clarify and redirect your life
