A high-flying weight-loss expert from Lisburn is beaming with pride after attending a prestigious event in Derbyshire to celebrate her achievements as a Consultant and Team Developer for Slimming World, helping people from the Lagan Valley area to lose weight.
Jill Ellis, a weight-loss Consultant for the Moira Slimming World groups is also a Team Developer for the Lagan Valley area.
As well as running her own groups, she manages 12 other consultants in the Lagan Valley area.
Jill was one of around 130 high-achieving Team Developers invited to the company’s ‘Team Developer Thank-You Day’ at the organisation’s head office in Alfreton, Derbyshire.
As part of the day, which was the first ever ‘Thank-You’ event held by the organisation solely for Team Developers, Jill was invited to discuss best practice and share her tips on delivering a first-class weight management service to members, as well as share ideas for building and managing successful local teams.
The guests were given an insight into Slimming World’s continued growth and plans for the future by Slimming World’s Director of Field Operations Lisa Salmon, and were treated to a healthy Food Optimised banquet in a pop-up marquee.
Jill said: “I was so delighted just to have been invited to the day at Slimming World’s head office – and being there was so inspirational.
“To have had the opportunity to meet and share ideas with other top-performing weight loss experts and managers was an experience I won’t forget.
“I learnt so much from the day and there’s no doubt the insight will enable me to improve the support I give to other consultants in the area so that anyone who attends Slimming World in Lagan Valley, including the members who attend my Slimming World group each week, get the very best possible service and support.
“I love my job and I feel so passionate about helping people to change their lives by losing weight and learning new habits to be able to keep it off.”
Jill said the opportunity was an example of the “superb support” available to Slimming World franchisees.
“There’s no better company to be part of,” she said.
“With the health risks posed by rising obesity rates, it’s never been more important that people are able to access regular effective support from people who care and who really understand what it’s like to struggle with weight.
“I would love to hear from any current or former members of Slimming World who would be interested in joining the team of consultants.”
