Wilde International Network Newsletter August 2013
We had a summer. Can you finally believe it that we had two weeks of unbroken sunshine here in the UK?  I think it was two weeks. I heard a BBC weather forecast that said two weeks, so I’ll go with that. And what a difference it made to people’s moods. I had people smiling at me and saying good morning that have never done so. The pavements outside restaurants and pubs were bleeding people as the mild evenings continued into night. We should have all had a nice little top up of vitamin D to take us into the cold, sunless days and dark nights of winter to come.

August Issue

EWI Launch

The launch of Every Woman Inspired took place at the Jamaican High Commission on 18th July and of course we had a full house. Our guest speakers included; Mor Dioum, director of the Victoria Climbe Foundation, Margaret Nyuywerizia, director of CAME Women and Girls Organisation, Jacalyn Belgrave, director of Ndulge, the ex Mayor of Southwark, Althea Smith, Denise Henry, FGM Midwife, Felicity Okolo, author and personal domestic abuse coach,  the pelvic floor muscle diva, Jenni Russell and our UK patron, Carroll Thompson. We had a special endorsement from Labour MP, Diane Abbott, who was invited and came along, and after listening to the speakers, was able to show appreciation for the concept of EWI.

The evening was just a taste of what’s to come at the EWI expo in Jamaica, in November. The magic, synergy and energy that fills a room of predominately women; Women who are creative, enterprising, philanthropic, healers, spiritual - women from across career paths, gives you many ‘goose bump moments’. Moments when you’re having a conversation with some-one and the hair starts standing up on the back of your head, on your skin because what they are saying is exactly in line with your ethos. 

A Word for a Special, Inspirational Lady

Women from across generations came along, and we were blown over by the gentle spirited, Ulrica Llewellyn, whose raffle ticket won the NDulge £100 beauty spa basket, and returned it to EWI to raffle again. She said in her speech that she was touched and very happy to see young women continuing the work and improving themselves and providing opportunities for the next generations to come.  We raised £193 on the raffle, and now because of Mummy Ulrica, we can raise more. Thank you Mummy Ulrica.

We had good feed backs and now the fun begins as we entice you all to join us in November and come and share in some of that feminine magic. To show you where we’re going to be staying, one of my sista-friends, Ms Philomena Azu, went along with her family to Jamaica, staying at the hotel where EWI participants will be staying. She said, and I quote; ‘It’s unbelievable, the participants will love it, and the staffs are very friendly, ask for Leone, she was fantastic.’ So Leone it is, for those who are coming.  And Phil has permitted me to share some of her hotel shots with you.

Jackee Holder’s Book Launch

At the end of a hard week what better way to start the weekend than to head for a book launch, a place to nibble on crisps and nuts and drink white and red wine as you network with similar energies.  That’s exactly what I did on Friday 9th August. I went along to Brixton Library, where I haven’t been in many years – to the launch of 49 Ways To Write Yourself Well, the third book by Executive Leadership Coach and Author, Jackee Holder.

You are guaranteed two things among many others at one of Jackee’s events. You’re going to bump into someone you haven’t seen in years, and you’re going to come away with that feel good feeling. That ‘I can do it’ feeling. That ‘I should be loving myself more’ feeling. I certainly got the message and on Saturday morning bright and early, and still with Jackee in my head, I woke up with the full intention of starting the day by showing myself some love.

So I went down to Westfield and bought me a dozen bra and knickers set in all colours . . . I don’t know what it is about new underwear that makes a girl feel good, but it does! Now underwear has absolutely nothing to do with Jackee’s new book - that was just me rambling on. Anyhow, check out 49 Ways To Write Yourself Well if you’re into health, self-development, creativity and if you’re into living well. 

Thank You

I just want to say thanks again, for taking the time to read WIN’s newsletter and listening to my banter. Those of you who have contacted me, have stated you enjoy my monthly spiel – I hope you know it’s not just spiel . . . that there’s some sense among it all, can I get an Amen on that?  Anyway, thanks again.

Enjoy the pictures, take a look at our website and like us on FB.

And that’s me for now . . . I leave you with this quote: When people show you who they are, believe them the first time.

More health, wealth, love and joy!
