A high-flying weight loss expert from Sligo 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 to lose weight.
Tracy is a weight loss consultant for the Carraroe, Sligo, Slimming World groups and also a team developer for the Mayo area, meaning that as well as running her own groups, she also manages five other consultants in Mayo. Tracy was one of some 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 ‘thank you’ event held by the organisation solely for team developers, Tracy 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 also 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.
Tracy says: “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 Mayo, including the members who attend my Slimming World group each week, gets 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. Having the chance to get together with other top consultants from across the country to share ideas and experiences is yet another example of the superb support that we get as Slimming World franchisees. There’s no better company to be part of,” adds Tracy.
“With the health risks posed by rising obesity rates, it has 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. There are so many fad diets around, so being able to let people know that they can lose weight without going hungry and enjoying everyday foods - like pasta, rice, potatoes, fruit and vegetables, lean meat, poultry and fish, and sharing new ways to get active that don’t have to involve going to the gym or taking part in team sports is a great thing. That’s why I’m so proud to represent my group and my team of consultants and do whatever I can to support people with managing their weight."
