When life’s challenges lead to discovering a new you
What happens when life’s events leave you feeling disillusioned and in despair? Ella explains how a life change led to her leaving a long established career in teaching and retraining in social media marketing, which she had no previous knowledge of. She explains how she’s discovered new attributes in her character which she never realised she had.
Social media is often regarded as the place for people who are at least half Ella’s age to thrive and communicate, but she has proved the cynics wrong and successfully established her own social media marketing business. Ella has discovered a new career which has given her greater confidence and truly reflects the person she is now. ‘None of us stay the same’, she says.
Are you ready to seek out new opportunities rather than settling for what life currently has to offer?

Preparing for the Event
For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).
We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
What if I can’t make the event?
If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.
Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?
Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy the event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.
How do I watch the live event?
Rest Less events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.
How do I sign-up for and access the recording? (Recorded events only)
Book the event as normal (as if you are attending live). After the event ends you will automatically receive a post-event email with a link to the recording, as long as the event was recorded. You do not need to do anything else and there is no separate booking process for recordings only. Please note it can take up to 24 hours for Zoom to process recordings.
