I had the pleasure of being part of a small group of female entrepreneurs invited to the House of Lords for afternoon tea with Baroness Uddin (pictured with me below). Tea was a delightful affair as the other pictures show and with the mini scones directly in front of me there was no
Havering Women in Business
Today I was guest speaker at the Havering Women in Business networking event. I thoroughly enjoyed myself speaking to a full room of female entrepreneurs on strategies to improve their diet, lifestyle and wellbeing which would in turn reflect in their businesses. It’s always fulfilling to empower others and there were lots of ‘aha’ moments.
The networking was great too and I had the opportunity of putting faces to the names of some of my newest twitter followers. Here I am with Yvonne Bendall and Linda Watson from the London Borough of Havering who co-ordinate and organise Havering Women in Business.
Conference on Health
I had the pleasure of speaking at a health conference organised by three of my clients: the Commonweallth Countries League in partnership with the British Heart Foundation and Diabetes UK.

My presentation was on eating well for health and wellbeing and I injected some humour based on the current horse meat scandal. Incidentally, during
Southwark Health Factor Challenge
My client Southwark Council is currently running the Southwark Health Factor Challenge, a 10 -week X-Factor style programme. Now in its fifth week, 13 hopefuls (split into 3 groups) intend to improve their health and wellbeing by getting fitter and eating better.
As dietitian for the Health Factor Challenge, I hosted a special event last night at Southwark Council. “Eat Smart, Eat Healthy’ with Angela Tella” was a presentation open to the public and what an amazing response! I spoke on the concept of healthy eating and dispelled some myths about healthy eating being boring, expensive and complicated. There was plenty of lively discussion and many questions about the practicalities of healthy eating.
I also ran a workshop, ‘Making Successful and Lasting Diet and Lifestyle Change’ for the Health Factor Challenge participants. The workshop explored the practical aspects of making change by highlighting the behavioural aspects of successful change and providing tools for setting and achieving their diet and lifestyle goals.
Finally, there was the opportunity for the groups to choose and discuss a healthy recipe for a Cook and Eat session/competition the following day. I had a great time and wish all participants every success over the next 6 weeks. For more information visit Southwark Health Factor.
