“The Importance of Being Yourself”

An adventure for the soul…

The Royal Hall – Harrogate 7th March 2020, 2pm – 4pm

In honour of International Women’s Day with charity partner: IDAS

Do you truly listen to your gut instinct? What about your heart? If so, do you follow it? 

Join us for an inspiring afternoon of entertainment, storytelling, powerful insights, laughter and a few surprises. ‘The Importance of Being Yourself…’ is an adventure for the soul which will bring into focus your own internal power to feel inspired to listen and follow your own heart!

Hosted and guided by internationally acclaimed motivational speaker Lisa Clifford, this show will take a multi-faceted look at how we choose to use our intuition, how we sometimes ignore it and what is possible if we open our thinking with a few simple “thoughtset” fine tuning.

A flavour of the afternoon…

Bring your friends & have a lovely day out in Harrogate

Lisa Clifford

Keynote Speaker, Coach, High Performance Training Specialist and Fire Walking Instructor LISA CLIFFORD trained with the best of the best including NLP with Paul McKenna and the brilliance of the fire walk with her mentor Peggy Dylan. Starting out in hospitality and sales, Lisa knew that she was destined to work with people from all walks of life to deliver personal fulfilment, business growth and unstoppable potential. Listening to her heart in 2003 she asked herself, ‘What would you do if you couldn’t fail?’ and the rest is history. Lisa has worked strategically with blue chip companies to increase their sales, mentor’s CEO’s, coaches Athletes and has even trained the British army to walk on FIRE!

Joining Lisa on stage throughout the afternoon will be many guests sharing their own stories of overcoming adversity and celebrating the many milestones in their personal lives and careers.

Sarah Hill

Sarah Hill, our CEO has over 10 years’ experience of leading IDAS and has overseen its development from a small local charity to the largest regional domestic abuse charity. Sarah started her career supporting children living in refuges and is immensely proud to have been involved in helping support thousands of families over the last 25 years.

Mona Norman

On the outside she is a graceful, immaculate, successful businesswoman, loving wife and mother. You could understandably assume that Mona has been blessed with an easy life… BUT what is the story that supports the woman behind Brand Yorkshire and her drive to bring businesses together? Mona will share some of her life experiences, including leaving war torn Iraq to move to the UK without the ability to read and write English at the age of 17, as well as her 15-year modelling career that gave her her voice in one breath and took away with a different breath…. and much much more.

Nicola Green

We are delighted to announce that on our panel discussion will be Nicola Green. A spiritual advisor and mentor for over 30 years, Nic spent much of her youth suppressing her feelings and desperately trying to fit into a world that seemed to reject her. Author of, ‘The Gift Of Your Wounds’, she will be discussing how a series of events including low self-esteem, dyslexia, depression, Lyme’s disease and the tragic loss of her baby led to her stepping back into following her calling and turning her hurt into helping others.

Paula Lorimer

Director Paula joined The Harrogate Convention Centre in 2019 bringing more than two decades of top-level event industry experience to the role. Her goal is to bring more major conferences and prestige association events to the business. There is no doubt to achieve these ambitious goals Paula has to dig deep – the event industry is a highly competitive industry requiring her to lead teams in bringing out their appetite for success – aligning hearts with minds.

One of our chosen charity partners for 2020 is IDAS. Every time a person purchases a ticket for one of our events, they can choose to add a donation to their ticket price. Starting life as York Women’s Aid in 1977, IDAS is the largest specialist charity in Yorkshire supporting anyone experiencing or affected by domestic abuse or sexual violence. Their services include refuge accommodation, community-based support, peer mentoring, group work and access to a free, confidential out of hours’ helpline. They recognise that most victims of domestic abuse and sexual violence are women and provide a number of single sex services such as refuges to women and their children. However, most of their services are accessible to anyone who is affected by abuse and they encourage male and LGBT+ victims and survivors to access their support. For children and young people, they have also developed one to one and group support. Their young persons’ RYPP (Respect Young Person’s Programme) also works with families where the young person is abusive. www.idas.org.uk
