Girl at the Ironing Board



Lisa Hayden will be at our October event share with us her inspiring story, running a successful family business, raising a small family and having been diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer with a 50-50 chance of survival. She creates Girl at the Ironing Board, a series of letters to her children which are sometimes funny, sometimes informative, but always with lots of love!
In 2004 Lisa was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer. She was given a 50-50 chance of survival. She had 2 young children – Gretel was 9 and Sam was 6.

With such frightening odds being discussed, her greatest fear was leaving two young children without a mother. Lisa wrote a series of letters to her children.

Sometimes funny, sometimes informative, but always with lots of love! Lisa says that the idea came to her one day whilst ironing – the only household chore she could do at the time. And so evolved “letters from the ironing board”, words from a mother to her children in case she was not around to say them herself.

In February this year Lisa was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, which she is having treatment for at the moment.

Business in Heels events provide the atmosphere for business women to create their own opportunities. With an emphasis on fun, these events enable participants to mingle easily and develop mutually beneficial relationships across a broad spectrum of specialties and businesses. Along with value-packed goody bags, nibbles and uplifting inspirational speakers, the evenings are a magnet for women wanting to discuss commercial and career prospects with other like-minded ladies. Over a glass of bubbles, who knows what might happen!
