FB Ep 017 Melissa Jeffcott



I recently spoke at the Beautiful You Coaching Academy Inspiration Day about the topic of Sacred Coaching, and how to connect with your local community through running events. Please contact me via my email if you are interested in me speaking at your event about topics such as: ‘Filling your own cup first: the importance of self care for the busy women’ and ‘Finding moments of joy & wellbeing in your everyday on the other side of forty.’


I have coordinated a number of charity events in my local area, including a film night in my role as an Engaging Women Ambassador for Good raising money for the Luke Batty Foundation. In both 2017, and 2018 I hosted International Women’s Day functions raising money for The Global Women’s Project and The Catherine Hamlin Fistula Foundation. I hosted a sold out screening for over 150 people of the documentary ‘Screenagers’ as well as a screening of The Goddess Project to raise money for the RAW Community Garden. I also regularly give Life Coaching gift vouchers as prizes for local events raising money in my Bayside community.
