In Conversation With ... shining the spotlight on leading entrepreneurs

This is the launch of our new 'In Conversation With' series where we shine the spotlight on leading entrepreneurs and RHC Members.

We learn what inspired them to start their business, what drives them, what makes them tick and hear about what they’ve learnt along the way,

We hear about the big wins, the tough times and they share with us some of their best advice.

We never stop learning and it’s so useful to be able to learn from others.

  • Developing Women as Resilient Leaders

    “Everyone is a leader because everyone influences someone” Maxwell. Do you want to feel more . . . confident, kick away imposter syndrome or make robust decisions that people will listen to?  Do you want to build a stronger network of women who can support you when you need it the most, giving you the courage, the strength and self belief to move forward authentically? Be a resilient leader, confident in “who you are” and “what you do”.   WHO’S IT FOR? This programme is specifically designed to develop the capability of women to lead themselves and others. We will focus on the commonly shared barriers that women, irrespective of age or sector, identify as preventing them from reaching their full potential.

  • Second Opinion Service: Free Financial Planning Consultation

    For the Love of Money: Do you need a second opinion? Financial planning is about much more than . . . simply creating returns. Our clients want to find happiness in their lives, which will mean something different to every single person we work with. If we aren’t having deep conversations about freedom and happiness with our clients, then perhaps it’s time we take a better look at what matters most in life. Money is only valuable because it allows us to grow past a stage in life where we have to work hard for a living, but it won’t help anyone to be truly happy. As financial planners, we are put into a position to not only offer wise counsel, but actionable plans that can help our clients live truly fulfilling lives. Interested in knowing more about our investment approach? If so, here’s what we'd like to offer you: a (virtual) cup of coffee and a second opinion. By appointment, we would be delighted to have a chat with you about your situation. We will ask you to briefly outline your financial goals – in other words, what you hope your investment portfolio will do for you. Then, we’ll review your strategy with you. Interested? Feel free to contact us here. We look forward to hearing from you! If you’d like advice about any aspect of your financial, tax or estate planning – please get in touch on 0208 943 9229 or email enquiry@hhw-uk.com GET THE OFFER
  • FEEL FABULOUS AFTER 40

    Are you feeling exhausted after a year like 2020? Is 2021 still feeling a little like a mountain to . . . climb? Has the challenge of home working, home schooling, worry about loved ones and no social life starting to take it's toll on your health? If that's you - you're not alone! In times like these - when all we want is often just to climb under the duvet - it's really important to look after ourselves. Because, if you are like most women, you will be so busy looking after everyone else that you've put your own needs - and health & happiness - to the bottom of the list. My programme is designed to help you take some time for your own health and happiness. Because if you get sick, no-one benefits. And in times like these - we need our health more than ever. But most of all - because taking the time to nurture your health will bring so much more than energy, focus, weight loss and better sleep - you'll feel happier, more motivated and more joyful. Once we reach our forties, things change - in our bodies and in our lives. The Feel Fabulous after 40 programme is designed to tackle the specific issues that most women find more troublesome as they navigate this decade - including dealing with weight gain, managing stress, gut issues, hormonal and mood changes, and sleep. It's also designed for busy multi-juggling working parents and professionals - so however much or little time you have, you can use the strategies in a way that works specifically for you, for your body and for your life. Join me for this online group programme - and start to build the foundations for a healthier, happier 2021. I'd love to see you in the group 🙂 **OFFER** For RHC members Use the offer code FFF-RHC and enjoy a 10% discount - and join the programme for only £247.50. Comments from our previous group members: "Absolutely brilliant!" "I loved doing your programme" "An incredibly professional programme" I'm blown away at how brilliant it is - you are so clear and informative - calming, inspiring and comforting." GET THE OFFER

Enjoy relevant, practical tricks to help you build and grow your business. From finding your brand, structuring your business, attracting clients, time management and much more. Why? Since the beginning of lockdown, I saw a need for business owners to have extra support, being your own boss can be lonely and this was made even more the case since lockdowns hit. I set up Friday morning Zoom sessions as a way for business owners to learn something new, feel supported, meet new people and to feel less isolated. These have become more and more popular so what started as a helping hand during these strange times has become an event people look forward to and attending each week. Here are some of the comments from some regulars… ⭐The sessions have helped me, they provide clarity, structure and focus! ⭐This has been an event I look forward to attending each week and I know I will always get a lot out of it! ⭐ It sets me up for the weekend and gives me things to think about for the following week. This is a new venture for Caroline and I, and we would love for you to join us on this journey. If Fridays are hard for you for any reason, then why not sign up to one of our packages and you can play catchup and receive all the benefits as listed above! Here is the link to have a further look https://sallyinkster.mykajabi.com/no-bs-sales-page Here’s to building a great helpful, supportive community. For now, the Friday zoom link to these sessions will remain the same! GET THE OFFER
