About the Event

We all know that running a business can be isolating at times, so getting together with other people in our industry is invaluable. If you're not already a member of the Children's Activities Association, we'd love for you to come along and meet us all, as well as learn more about the Children's Activities Association's mission and goals for the children's activities sector.

Back by popular demand, we are thrilled to announce that Jane James, CEO and Founder of "Little Voices," and Claire O'Connor, CEO and Founder of "babyballet®" will be hosting another online meeting on behalf of the Children's Activities Association. Both Claire and Jane are proud and honoured to serve on the board of the Children's Activities Association and contribute their expertise and value to the organisation and the children's activities sector.

The meeting's focus will be on  the important topic of  'inclusivity and diversity' and we are excited to announce that our guest speaker is Ruth Fogg. Ruth specialises in providing practical skills and solutions to understand and manage stress in both personal and professional situations. She has been in business since 2002 and her qualifications include a Diploma and MSc in Counselling Psychology, Teaching, Hypnosis, Emotional Freedom Technique and Stress Management. She wears hearing aids in both ears but is an excellent lipreader! She is an Honorary Fellow of Brunel University and a Fellow of the International Stress Management Association.

Ruth's talk  “Deaf, Daft or just Different?” tells her story about  becoming profoundly deaf following a car accident as a young girl and how she lived with a head full of limiting beliefs, not unlocking her hidden confidence until she was in her 30s.   Ruth talks about growing up in a world of silence; relying upon lip reading to get by and how as technology advanced, a newfound confidence emerged to help Ruth ‘Believe To Achieve’.

Ruth’s passion for ensuring teenagers and young adults learn to understand themselves so they can break free from limiting and negative beliefs imposed upon us from generations before us is inspiring. 

We'd appreciate it if you could help us get the word out to as many activity providers as possible, so please share the event and invitation with your networks and social media accounts.

Free and open to everyone!
