Women of Influence, with Kate Meade. We are on a mission to find the most incredible women. Some we will know, others are going about their daily lives. Everyone has a story. She is a CEO, She is a volunteer, She is a TV host, She is a doctor, an educator, a scientist, a leader. She is just getting on with it. What can we learn from her, what’s her message? Join me to celebrate incredible, inspiring women and shine a great big beacon of light on their stories. Let’s learn from the women that are paving the way for us. I love to learn and my favorite way is through storytelling. I am curious - absolutely fascinated - with people's stories. I can’t wait to get to KNOW the person in front of me and HOW they got to be where they are today. Where did they grow up, what gets them excited, why do they do what they do and, when it gets tough… why do they do what they do? This is the Women of Influence Podcast.

    I BEGGED MY DAUGHTER TO PLEASE STAY: SOPHIE HENSON

    I BEGGED MY DAUGHTER TO PLEASE STAY: SOPHIE HENSON

    On your knees praying to anyone that will listen; please keep my daughter earth side.
    This is a pain so real it hits you at the very core.
    Sophie is a single Mother with two daughters; India, 16 and Violet, 14.
    In 2017, after months of panic attacks and school refusal, India was diagnosed with depression and anxiety.
    In 2018, this diagnosis escalated to severe social anxiety and clinical depression.
    She moved schools for her as she wanted a fresh start, and that seemed to help for six months, then India's anxiety became heightened due to her social surroundings and she went downhill fast.
    In 2019 the self-harming began, then in the march the suicide attempts started. 
    Fast forward to 2022 and Sophie has started the Please Stay Foundation.
    She is a woman of Influence…

    WILL & NIGEL JAMISON: WE ARE DADS. THANKYOU NIAMH

    WILL & NIGEL JAMISON: WE ARE DADS. THANKYOU NIAMH

    We have now heard the story of Niamh.
    Now it's time to hear from Will and Nigel. 
    Dads to Jones. 
    This is the first time we have had the males featured on the Women of Influence Podcast. 
    And it's soooooo good to have them. 

    It just feels right to hear the full story of Niamh, and Jones, Will and Nigel. 
    I was working with Will at the time Jones was born and I have to say even I; who didn’t know Will and Nigel all that well at the time, felt nothing but a burst of love when Jones entered the world. 
    All babies are special when they enter the world…but some; some feel like, look like…. I don’t know how to put it other..... than super special. Truly a burst of love….

    A note to Will and Nigel. 
    Thank-you for sharing your story with us. Not only is it the story of becoming a family but it's educational too. 
    From my wardrobe to your office thank-you for being here with us. Love Kate

    49/100: KRISTEN PICKFORD: This day we were flying. It was perfect

    49/100: KRISTEN PICKFORD: This day we were flying. It was perfect

    Cancer.

    It's such a huge part of Kristen's life.

    Just surviving to be here for her children, her husband, her family. 

    And while it's an ongoing concern, it's not all of Kristen's story. 

    I have always admired a woman that can ride a horse. It's a special bond. One I will never truly understand. Kristen tells the tale of the ride of her life. A story we can only imagine to experience. As good as any Olympic story. A reminder for us all that it's never about coming first in anything.

    Australia is home to some remarkable women.
    They’re raising foster families.
    Running cattle stations.
    Living inspirational lives.
    Yet, many of their tales of triumph are never profiled, never celebrated.
    So we’re changing that… every week.. through our Women Of Influence
    Podcast.
    You’ll fall in love with these women.
