Free seminar delivers wake up call to Liverpool women
Liverpool who feel they aren't realising their true potential are
being invited to a free seminar that organisers say will change
their lives for the better, forever. Organisers say the free 2
hour workshop will take women on a journey that reveals their true
talent and passion, and will help empower them to achieve their
Jane Kenyon of Well Heeled Divas, a company that helps women achieve
their potential, said too many women have their ambitions quashed.
"It's over a century since women won the right to vote and yet
they still haven't reached the levels of freedom and independence
that men have. They are still underrepresented at senior levels
across all sectors of both corporate and public life, still earn an
average of 17% less than men, are passed over for promotion, feel
undervalued at work and have too much to juggle in their daily
lives. It has been predicted that by 2025, over 60% of the
nation's wealth will be controlled by women and that over half of
the UK's millionaires will be female.
Given these statistics, there has never been a better time to be a
woman but many lack the confidence to take the first steps to
achievement and fulfilment. That's where Well Heeled Divas comes in.
We aim to show women that they can have it all without compromise.
Many women feel their life just isn't working out as they'd hoped.
We'll help them review their life plan and help them get back on
track. We'll take them to a eureka moment so they can move forward
positively. Once we help women realise what's out there for
the taking, we show them practical ways in which they can get it and
the life they want. It's tremendously positive and uplifting."
Her business partner Yvonne Halling agrees:- "Women need to
change. They need to recognise their potential and get wise to their
natural talents so they become empowered and financially
independent. Women don't have to behave like men to get ahead
in the corporate and entrepreneurial sector. In the USA, women
are setting up businesses at twice the rate of men. We want to
ensure that Liverpool women are at the forefront of the
entrepreneurial movement that's sweeping across the Atlantic.
At our seminar we discuss wealth, entrepreneurship, life choices and
shifting mindset. We show women how they can make money work for
them and how to get in a positive zone and stay there - we show them
how to become outstanding and live in tune with their purpose."
The Well Heeled Divas workshop starts at 6.30pm on Thursday 20
September at the Liner Hotel. To book call Jane Kenyon on 07774

CAUGHT ON CAMERA!
being a filmmaker, but not sure where to start? Well here’s the
In an exclusive competition being organised by the region’s
screen agency, 18 to 24 year old mobile phone users are being
encouraged to get creative and get caught on camera.
“Lots of people take clips on their mobile and don’t even
realize they’re making films. But our Short Sharp Shots competition
gives them the opportunity to show off their skills, and learn new
ones,” says Helen Bingham, Head of Production for Northwest
Vision and Media, which works on behalf of the TV, film, radio and
digital content industries.
With 10 cash prizes of £250, film training and top-of-the-range
videophones on offer, anyone who has ever wanted to make a movie is
being encouraged to get involved.
“You don’t have to be brilliant – we’re searching for raw
potential, not a polished finished product.
What we’re looking for are clips that show wit and speed,
snippets that hint at your style and your voice. If you’ve got that,
then we’ll be able to help you develop your filmmaking skills even
further.” said Helen.
Mobile phone filmmaking is all about action and an eye for a good
shot. “If you’ve got a good idea, then now is the time to
create a short film, documentary, or animation. Just keep it short,
keep it moving and get it seen!” adds Helen.
Short Sharp Shots is a competition for Northwest 18-24-year-olds.
Clips of 3 minutes or under are needed, shot on mobiles to be
screened on mobiles. The best 10 submissions will be awarded funding
of £250 each, and a place on a mobile filmmaking bootcamp to help
them produce their next movie. They’ll also be given a
top-of-the-range video mobile, to help them produce even better
films in future.
“The 10 short-listed films will be screened on the Short Sharp
Shots website, and made available for audiences to download to their
own mobile phones so people can vote for their favourite,”
Full submission information, access to other filmmakers and mobile
filmmaking tips on how to shoot, edit and send mobile video clips,
can be found at
via Northwest Vision and Media’s website
www.visionandmedia.co.uk. Deadline for
submissions 21 September 2007.
