I’m glad I found you. I said this to my wife - without Mirthy, my life would be far less richer than it is now.

Event Description

JUNE:

Who doesn’t love a good story? Join me and the rest of the storytelling bunch to share stories and listen to them. This month we will be sharing stories on the theme of ‘Age is Just a Number’. Short stories about people who have achieved unexpected things later in life, what age you think is old and why, and of course whether we should wear purple.

Join us at the Storytelling Café, meet new people, make new friends, and share stories. We divide into smaller breakout rooms of 4-6 people in Zoom to connect.

  • Duration: 60 mins
  • Online Zoom event: Join from your computer, phone or tablet (no replay available)
  • As a highly interactive and participatory event, we encourage participants to unmute and turn on cameras (where possible).

Meet the Host, Sandy

Sandy Leong has had 3 careers and is currently working on her fourth. She started her working life as a teacher, moving on to work as a training and development officer before becoming the Chief Officer of a Racial Equality Council. Seeking more work / life balance she set up a training business delivering training to a wide range of organisation all over the country and abroad (the work / life balance did not materialise!). She also undertook training qualifications as a performance coach and a counsellor.

Now she combines her lifelong passion for history as a professional speaker, speaking nationally and internationally, and as a coach and trainer working with others to help them develop their skills to reach their potential, and sneaking in a few storytelling performances.

Believing in having multiple strands creates a fulfilling life, she is also a published author, and currently the Chair of the Board of Trustees for a large Charity and Chair of her local museum committee, a wife, a mum, and grandparent.
