Episode #87. Menopause is the focus of this episode – it’s an area of personal understanding, not just for our own understanding but it’s also important to gain greater understanding and empathy for our colleagues and those in our care.
Menopause is a natural part of a women’s life when she stops having her period, commonly from the ages of 45 although it can be earlier. Perimenopause is the stage prior to the menopause and both phases can impact a woman emotionally, psychologically and her physical health as her body adjusts to the changes in hormones and functions.
Joining Abby is leading retail marketer Claire Farrant, Marketing Director at Lidl GB. Together with her team, Claire has helped to grow Lidl’s UK share by 3 points in her time at the retailer; she has been selected numerous times within Campaign’s Power 100 and loves to support, mentor and inspire others in the industry.
In this episode, Claire openly and bravely shares her personal history of menopause from her mother and her own experience. She discusses the importance of supporting women’s mental health as well physical health, managing and taking control of symptoms in the workplace and being transparent with your team.
Plus career highs and lows and advice for marketers.
