Barbara Ellis of Optimum Health at The Inspire Network, North Tyneside

Barbara Ellis of Optimum Health spoke about her amazing business where she aims to create as much health and wellbeing in our lives as possible – striving for Optimum Health. Barbara is a complimentary therapist as a result of accidents which caused problems in her back and lots of pain, which led her to discover massage and acupuncture.
She trained in traditional Chinese medicine, and is passionate about posture – especially how we sit and stand and our posture in the workplace.

There are many different streams of Optimum Health to help with your health, wellbeing and posture, including acupuncture, Emmett, Havening, Tai-Chi Qigong and Arbonne.

Jayne Edwards – Jayne Edwards Consultancy

I offer fundraising and development consultancy services to not-for-profit organisations.

I have a decade of experience working in senior positions in VCSE organisations from advice centres to mental health service providers, including significant experience of working with migrant communities. I combine this experience with a passion for social justice and look to take on consultancy roles where I can support organisations to take and create opportunities, developing projects to meet the needs of the communities they serve and then subsequently finding the resources to deliver them.

I prefer to work in a hands on way – I am not simply a bid writer but someone who can work with you to develop a strategy to transform your services. I have a track record of achieving positive outcomes for organisations who have been struggling with their direction or facing closure if they do not change.

Contact me for help with:

Project development and fundraising / income generation
Organisational development and change management including service reviews
Interim management
Partnership development

I am based in the North East but wiling to consider travel or remote working with organisations elsewhere.
