At our meeting on 30th November, we welcomed self-published author and blogger, Virginia Burges.
She talked to us about her book ‘The Virtuoso’ and gave us her advice for budding authors on how to write unforgettable fiction. With her engaging tone and useful visual props, we were all fascinated by her writing journey and the way to do it, some of us may even start penning a novel in our spare time!
She also told us she is hoping to make a film out of her book, having already worked on creating a soundtrack for her book – a first for an author. It aims to summarise the book through music. You can listen to the track here:
We were delighted to welcome Jackie Jarvis to the first of our October meetings. After years of pushing hard for results in her business life, (as a business owner and coach) our speaker Jackie Jarvis felt the urge to do something completely different.
Over the last 2 years she has walked over 900 miles of two of the famous Camino’s to Santiago de Compostella (in Spain).
This experience allowed her to hear what she calls her ‘Voice of Slow’. It is these powerful messages she now feels compelled to share to benefit us all.
Such a thought-provoking and inspiring talk with lessons to be learnt for everyone. Thanks Jackie!
Jackie is also currently working on her book ‘In Pursuit of Slow’ which is due to be release next year. We hope to have her back to tell us more about lessons in how to stress less, be happier and accomplish more. For more information, visit the In Pursuit of Slow website.
