My Clients…

I’ve been fortunate to partner with a range of organisations across the public and private sector who are making menopause a mainstream conversation in their workplaces.  Each organisation is taking a different approach because it’s important to introduce menopause in the right way for your workforce.  There’s no one size fits all when it comes to conversations, surveys, focus groups, webinars, workshops,
e learning or policies.

What my clients say about working with me…

At Sellafield we believe all employees deserve the opportunity to realise their full potential and that includes promoting an environment of openness and transparency where it’s ok to talk about menopause.

In order to make sure this message reached as many of our people as possible we worked with Julie to produce a customised online menopause awareness briefing.

It was important to us that the briefing was tailored to Sellafield’s mission and manifesto and was inclusive of employees across all our locations, in all types of work, including those working over the barrier.

Thank you Julie for your help, support and professionalism and taking the time to understand what’s important to Sellafield and the clear purpose that we are all working towards. We are the proud host of a brilliant recording that is creating positive behaviours and conversations about menopause throughout Sellafield.

We have been working with Julie this year to better understand how we support our people during menopause.  Julie has delivered some amazing face to face and virtual workshops that have been engaging, lively and informative.  Everyone who has attended took something useful away from the session!

In collaboration, Julie created bespoke on line training for our managers to ensure going forward we:

A) continue to remind ourselves about how we support our people and

B) provides new managers with a toolkit to which they can refer to for guidance.

Thank you Julie for being so friendly, knowledgeable and open on the topic and helping us learn more about menopause.

Menopause awareness and learning how to support colleagues and ourselves is important at the Coal Authority as it helps us be a truly great place to work – for everyone.

The menopause pack provided by Julie was great in creating engagement following World Menopause Day as it created some great discussions around the topic in a fun and interesting way.  Julie was great to work with and the information covered all the aspects we needed to get the conversations going, really helpful in these busy times!

Clare Tasker, The Coal Authority

Our Menopause Awareness Webinar run by Julie was well attended by our staff.  The session was very informative and gave some great ideas of practical things to try.  Julie was fabulous at engaging with staff using the chat function and inviting questions throughout.  We’ve had great feedback from staff on the session.  Thanks Julie.

We just wrapped up the second of two live sessions on boom! Global Network with the brilliant Julie Dennis  on menopause at work. This one addressed the topic from a colleague/manager/workplace perspective, and I want to give a big shout out to all the male allies and business leaders who joined the session. 🙌

As Julie said in her wrap up, the more we talk about it, the easier it will become. And there are simple ways to start. It’s not a topic often talked about at work, so the practical tips (among many other things!) Julie shared to help start a conversation about it in the workplace and make it a ‘safe’ topic to talk about without fear of embarrassment or loss of opportunity, were just fantastic. Because when we can talk about things, change happens and we can create cultures that are truly inclusive and benefit everyone.

I can’t recommend Julie highly enough for the work she’s doing. 🚀

We invited Julie in to the Chartered Institute of Housing to deliver a menopause awareness raising workshop for our staff team as well, as a session aimed specifically at line managers, as part of our policy launch.

The sessions were dynamic, engaging and Julie really knows her stuff! Her approach is perfectly pitched so as to open up a healthy conversation.

Feedback from staff members included: “Julie was completely brilliant!!”, “I thought it was an excellent session”, and “I wish I had attended a session like that some years ago”.

Thank you Julie and we look forward to working with you again in the future.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for such a fantastic workshop last night, I really enjoyed it and loved the way you presented it, by far the best Zoom I have ever had! I thought it struck the perfect balance of information, people asking questions and people engaging with the content!

Grace Jackson, COOK

What next?

My approach is to find a balance that ensures awareness and training supports people experiencing menopause, helps those who are living with partners going through it, educates anyone who might work with someone in that situation and protects the business too.

If you’re looking for positive, inclusive training content that creates a buzz around menopause and leaves people feeling upbeat, positive and empowered to make a difference email and lets chat about how my training programme could work for you.
