Future Events

I have lots of events in the pipeline for 2022
During a normal year I provide a balance of large and small events. There will be workshops,coffee mornings and lunches and of course my famous Literary Lunch.
I will also be supporting various charities especially my charity Gift of A Wedding and Deborah Dixon’s charity in memory of her son Aaron for CRY

Choose an event to suit you


The people who attend my events go for many different reasons.

Some are entrepreneurs who are already successful in business and others are just at the start of their business experience.

You will meet a mix of young people raring to go and retired people who want to give something back by advising start ups . Both groups also want to enjoy socialising , going to different places and learning new skills.

We are as different as the way we sit on chairs and connection is key.

Join us and see what you think.

Let’s talk to Carrie Green December 1st 


I have known Carrie since before she founded the global Female Entrepreneur Association and I always knew she was one to watch. She has created a marvellous company which helps women in business everywhere and I am delighted she has invited us to visit her headquarters for a Q&A in December. Needless to say this event sold out in a few hours

420 January – 10.30 till 14.30

Vision Board Workshop

Nerd Altrincham 

A vision board is a tool you can create to help you focus on and attract what you want in your life rather than what you don’t want. You can use it to achieve a specific goal or to improve different areas of your life – your health and fitness, work or career, finances, relationships, travel etc. Ultimately it’s about creating love, success and happiness in your life.
Toni Mackenzie – transformational therapist and mindset coach – is an expert with many years experience on the best possible way to create and use your vision board. She’ll be sharing with you some very interesting facts about the psychology, neuroscience and energy vibrations behind creative visualisation and guiding you regarding your choice of images. She’ll also tell you about some additional powerful techniques that you can use as part of the manifestation process.
I’ll be there to host the event and help you with the layout and style of your board as well as finding suitable pictures in the magazines – so you can create something you’ll love to look at. Start collecting a variety of pictures with colourful images that appeal to you . You can also print out beautiful images from Pinterest and the net.
The workshop will last for four hours, from 10.30 till 2.30, and boards, glue, , coloured marker pens will be included in the very reasonable price of £50.
Refreshments and lunch are included
Toni will also send you some tips by email before you come along to help you do some preparation in advance, so you have a good idea of the changes or goals that you’d most like to focus on during the workshop. www.innerdepths.co.uk

Catherine Sandland – Phenomenal Woman Workshop

 “Sue France is a white witch…she looks so calm and collected and yet she is very very good at getting her own way and making things happen!
So, I can’t quite believe I am posting this because I was fully intending to enjoy a bit of downtime and peace and quiet after the business of the two-day workshop last week which was just so powerful and inspirational.
However, I happen to surround myself with rather wonderful colleagues (Ashley Costello and Sue France) and also some fabulous clients who have persuaded me to run the workshop again.It’s not the first time attendees have said that the workshop has been great and that they’d recommend it to others but it is the first time I have been ganged up on and ‘told’ to set a date and run another.”

Catherine wrote those words after the first workshop in November 2021, Now we have completed three of these and each one has been equally fabulous for the delegates.


”So, here we are , telling you that the next Phenomenal Woman workshop is on March 28th/29th  2023 at Hartford Golf Club in  Cheshire.

We have already had some bookings so dont miss this chance .  contact Sue or Catherine on catherine@catherinesandland.com 


The power of Sue’s Connecting Cheshire group is phenomenal. Two of her members shared their experience of a fully funded Business Growth Programme run by Manchester Met University, so I signed myself up! Such a fantastic opportunity that I wouldn’t have known about without Sue!
