Chrissy was one of the speakers at the event and shared her past experiences with depression, low self-esteem and lack of self-belief. “I could never have imagined that one day, I would be a TV presenter or that I would be able to stand in front of a crowd to speak. If I changed and found confidence, so can you,” she said passionately.
The afternoon also included a talent show for members of the audience with prizes and make-up tips.
Gemma Leon one of the other speakers added: “We were very pleased with the event. There was a balanced mix of entertainment, advice, self help and reflection. The audience reaction was very positive and I believe they benefited from the entire event.”
Every woman in the audience received a white balloon and was invited to write on it something about herself that she wished to leave behind – namely her uncertainties, insecurities and so on. As they burst the balloons, the audience vowed to focus on their best attributes and use them to build better lives for themselves.
