    Life Stories - Val Adaway

    Life Stories - Val Adaway

    I always feel inspired when I encounter people 70 plus who live life on their terms, much as I used to be inspired by vibrant 50 somethings when I was in my forties! At 75, Val Adaway runs her own business as a Utility Warehouse Authorised Partner and has no plans to retire. In this episode, Val tells us about the example set by her mother, still working until the day before she died at 95, Val’s previous career in motorsport and what drives her to continue with her career. We also talk about the value of "old fashioned" communication methods and the part a positive attitude plays in staying happy throughout life.

    Part of the "Life Stories" series, recognising the extraordinary in the every day.

Using her parents as an example (with their permission) Sarah Huffen, from Gilded Wealth, describes how a little forward planning now can improve our quality of life in our later years. Regularly reviewing finances can give us the peace of mind we need to get on with our lives with confidence.

    Ageism is never in Style! with Jacynth Bassett

    Ageism is never in Style! with Jacynth Bassett

    “Ageism is never in Style” what a fantastic strapline for a fashion brand! Jacynth Bassett founded her age inclusive company, The Bias Cut, in response to seeing how her mother felt overlooked by clothing companies. Using customers of all ages as models, Jacynth is disrupting the narrative around fashion and age.

    We talk about her latest campaign: Strike out ageism! Where ageist terms are altered to reflect the truth: (ir)relevant, (still) got it! And (in)visible, Grand(ma) to, in Jacynth’s words, “to expose, disrupt and change ageist language, unconscious biases and the terminology of everyday life.” Women of all ages are invited to join in.
