A Funny Thing Happened in a BBC Bar...

A while back I was interviewed for a woman's blog by BBC presenter, Laura Rawlings. In a BBC bar, but I was completely sober, honestly.

'Meet me in the BBC bar' she said.

How exciting, I thought.

To be honest it wasn't very exciting at all and I didn't see anyone famous, except Dr Phil Hammond, but then I remember him from his junior doctor days so that wasn't wildly exciting (he's very funny though. I once did his radio show and he left the mic on while making some scurrilous remarks about a certain ex female prime minister. It was a classic.)

But back to the story. I sat with my knitting (!) waiting for Laura to finish her show. That woman is a true professional and just got on with the interview regardless of noises off. The interview was pretty wide ranging and of course, it has been edited to make me sound much better that I'm sure I did.

If you'd like to hear it, please click this link to hear me pontificating on feminism, work, and childcare. I do hope you enjoy it.

Women's Personal Development Specialist - Changing People, -

Hi, I’m Jane C Woods and I have an absolute passion for helping women achieve success in their lives. Be it the glass ceiling, the crystal maze, or very personal issues, I’m all about helping women achieve to their full potential and live the way they want to without being carbon copies of men. But I’m not about putting men down in order for women to get ahead, there’s plenty of room; I just want the guys to shifty up a bit… If my face looks familiar it's because I love Psychologies magazine (I've been buying it since the very first issue, such a good resource) and it's the only place I choose to advertise my courses. I write on women’s issues on my blog, www.changingpeople.co.uk, and am regularly featured in magazines, and on radio, but I’m probably best known for RenewYou. RenewYou is my one day personal development course for women. We have an international network of experienced, specialist women licensed to deliver it and empower women across the globe. Our goal is to reach one million women. It’s a big goal but… In 2013 we started with a single RenewYou specialist, me. Now you can find a RenewYou Courses across the UK, in the USA, Canada, Greece, Bangkok, Pakistan, South Africa, Belgium, with new countries being added all the time. My dream was to create a thriving and caring business on ethical, and dare I say, feminine terms, with a real community spirit of help and encouragement. And it’s actually happening with the support, expertise, and enthusiasm of my wonderful trainers. I think, (apart from my two lovely kids, a daughter and a son) that it’s probably my proudest achievement to date. Wonderful Changing People Women: One of the joys and privileges of my work is that I’ve connected with some really inspirational and wonderful women – from politics to entertainment to academia. They include: TV presenter, house fixer and matchmaker Sarah Beeny Amazing entrepreneur Sam Roddick of Coco de Mer Outspoken and entertaining academic Mary Beard Politicians like Siobhan Benita and Natalie Bennett Ex BBC broadcaster Miriam O’Reilly who bravely took on the might of the BBC- and triumphed A very rare interview with Sarah Montague, of the influential BBC Radio 4 Today programme I hope you like the posts and I hope they are helpful. Live life to the max and never hide your light under any bushels!
