Join us at our next Business Women's - International Women's Day event organised jointly with Emirates Old Trafford.

Our panel discussion topic for this event will be ‘Women’s Health’ and we have a great line-up of speakers for the event.

Our Panel Includes:

Jess Ross, Co-Founder of Lifestyle Lean, an online fitness brand helping business women look and feel incredible in the simplest way possible.

We have two sides to the business, a global transformation program as well as an active wear company but the goal is the same….to help as many people feel their utmost confident each day and become the most powerful version of themselves.

We achieve dramatic, long term transformations with our Lifestyle approach focusing on the whole 360…. not just the one hour in the gym.

Sadia Ahmed, CEO & Founder of Xana Medtec

Claire Marshall, Strategic Lead - Active Adults at GM Moving

Claire is the Strategic Lead for Active Adults at Greater Manchester Moving, one of 43 Active Partnerships across England. It leads on the implementation of GM Moving in Action, the Greater Manchester Strategy for Physical Activity, to help people to move more, make it easier to be active and make it a natural part of how we all live, travel, work and play in Greater Manchester.

In her role as Strategic Lead for Active Adults she is using her wealth of knowledge and expertise gained over a 20-year career in this field to advocate for and help lead a cultural revolution for active workplaces and communities, where we collectively support and enable adults at every stage of life to live healthier, happier, more productive lives through movement.

She has a particular interest in and is currently co-ordinating work across the GM Moving team and beyond around physical activity and women’s health. This includes working to address the systemic barriers that we know exist for women and girls that prevents equality and equity of access to physical activity, and also how we can collectively advocate and promote the benefits of movement and physical activity to support better (health) outcomes for women.
