North East’s M-Word event continues menopause conversation

Senior businesswomen from across the region gathered in Aberdeen to share their experiences of the menopause and hear expert advice from two guest speakers.

Organised by Aileen Easton, Chief Corporate Affairs Advisor at True North Advisors and Shona Macaskill of Gary Walker Wealth Management, the “M-Word” event was the first in a series planned for the North East during 2024.

The audience which gathered in W-Zero-1, in Aberdeen’s Energy Transition Zone, heard from Nicola Williams, a menopause counsellor based in Kemnay, and Kim Woolner, a holistic HR consultant from Peterhead, who spoke about their own experiences, both personally and in the workplace, and gave well-received wellbeing advice.

Aileen Easton of True North Advisors said:

“The menopause is now a topic that is featured regularly in the media. However, it can feel like there’s a tsunami of information which just leaves many women feeling confused about where to turn for help tailored to their needs.

“The M-Word events are an opportunity to bring together successful women from across the region to support one another and share their own experiences while also providing excellent networking opportunities. We will be announcing details about our next event in June shortly.”
