Speaking at Manchester’s first Body Confidence Live event at The Studio, 51 Lever Street, will be Vicky Pattison. The TV personality is part of the speaker line-up for the innovative event on 6 October being run by Body Confidence Live. This follows two successful events held by the organisation in Scotland earlier this year.
The latest event brings together a range of speakers all relating to body confidence, self-esteem and overall wellbeing. The aim of the event is to help people find ways to feel more positive about their bodies, be kinder to themselves and celebrate who they are.
As well Vicky Pattison, other speakers taking part in the Q&A on body confidence include stand-up comedian and body image speaker Juliette Burton. Also wellbeing expert and celebrity personal trainer Ellie Hopley and inspirational speaker Megan McGrory from Unlock The Key.
The event will be held at The Studio, 51 Lever Street, Manchester on Saturday 6 October from 1pm until around 4pm. Tickets are priced from £15 per person and are available now from the Body Confidence Live website. Stagecoach Manchester’s 76, 216 and 231 services stop nearby.
Vicky Pattison, who has appeared on numerous TV programmes including I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here, This Morning and Loose Women said: “I’m really excited to be part of this event – learning to like yourself is a really hard but really rewarding thing to achieve and it’s something that I think most people struggle with.
“We’re all guilty of being too hard on ourselves at times and maybe focusing too much on the negatives instead of celebrating all the fantastic things we have to offer. I can’t wait to be part of something that will provide a confidence boost to everyone involved.”
Body Confidence Live founder, Lindsay Reid, said: “We’ve had fantastic feedback from our previous events and it’s so exciting to be in Manchester for the first time with this new speaker-based event. Again the focus will be on helping people think about ways they can feel better about themselves and encouraging everyone to be a bit kinder to their bodies.
“The idea is that people can come along for a positive and uplifting afternoon, where they can hear from a range of different speakers, and hopefully leave feeling great.”
Elisabeth Tasker, Managing Director of Stagecoach Manchester said: “Stagecoach is delighted to be supporting such a positive local event and at the same time raising money for our charity partner. Low confidence and self-esteem is something that many people struggle with and is an important area for young people in particular.
“Achieving improved confidence helps people across all areas of their life, including at work, and can impact how they do their job and how they develop and grow within their career. We’re really looking forward to being part of this innovative event.”
