We came back on October 29th to where it all began and met at Escape The City's headquarters for a lovely evening focussing on the topics YOU wanted to hear.
This time we explored strategies to tell our stories. How do we engage our audiences? How do we get people to listen to us?

Robyn Peel and Leigh Taylor
Robyn is a coach, mentor, facilitator and general lover of people and life! She helps people get a clear understanding of who they are and helps them to dream big, define success on their own terms, take action and live fulfilling and meaningful lives. ...
Leigh runs Red Lotus Journey, a site dedicated to women’s retreats and sacred pilgrimage and is also a co-creator of The Space Between, creating mindful journeys to Japan. Her sincere wish is to help facilitate programmes and journeys where the stress consciousness is subdued.
Robyn and Leigh founded Finding Our Way after seeing many capable women forging their own path but questioning their impact, feeling overwhelmed and near burnout. The aim of Finding Our Way is to help these women change-makers THRIVE on their journey and stay balanced as they seek a more meaningful and wholly integrated lifestyle.
We help women explore a calmer, more focused way of being by spending quality reflective time and being more connected to oneself in a more mindful way. Our purpose is to facilitate becoming more conscious and aware in and of our actions in order to reach our own individual goals and to fulfil our greater aspirations in the world.
