Next Meeting

Chapel Golf Club, 7.30am – 9.30am



“Sleek and Successful – with Slimming World”

JENNY C AVEN Director of External Affairs.

It’s fifty years since Margaret Miles-Bramwell OBE started her first slimming group in Mansfield; she still owns it, and lives in Majorca. They’ve just opened a £8.5million extension to their Derby HQ (above); they employ 350 people and have 4,500 franchisees, and will soon have a million members in the UK attending their classes.

They’ve muscled in highly successfully to a market once dominated by the international brand, Weightwatchers; with their concepts of “free food” and “feel the love”, it’s a combination of brilliant marketing and savvy psychology. I’m a fan.

Fruit (a free food) will be available.. as well as our usual bacon baps. Slimming World is a lot bigger and more successful than you’d think. Come and find out more.  


We meet for coffee, pastries, juice, fruit from 7.30am; speaker 8 – 9 am; then networking over the bacon baps (this is Derbyshire…) till 9.30am close.
Anyone in business is welcome, so bring along clients, colleagues, trainees.
Please let me know numbers for catering.
