First US2U Consulting Podcast - Mental Health in the Workplace

Always keen to find new ways to enhance how we engage with our clients, we are pleased to launch our first podcast.

The aim is to produce a series of podcasts that people will find interesting and informative; they should be a key way to inform and update on a range of subjects relevant to help you implement best practice in your business.

For our first podcast we have tackled a subject which is increasingly discussed and can be difficult to talk about. Mental health issues. We know the impact can be devastating.

As some of you will know we have developed a partnership with YMCA Norfolk to deliver expert mental health advice and training for our clients, as part of a robust HR and well-being strategy.

Our Mental Health at Work Podcast features Rachel Blackburn interviewing Jessica Tyson from YMCA Norfolk.

Please listen on SoundCloud or watch on Youtube, and subscribe to our channels.

Boxing our Way to Celebrate Norfolk Day

As part of our Norfolk Day 2019 celebrations we are proud to become a sponsor of the Union Thai Boxing Group based in Gorleston, Great Yarmouth, England.

Team Union Thai was created in February 2018 by Brazilian-born Marcos Lopes (pictured with Rachel Blackburn). Lessons are taught at Top Body Gym in Gorleston on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. These sessions are open to all ages and levels of experience, from the very beginner to experienced fighters. There is also a ladies only class on Thursday.

The aim of the club, which has over 30 members, is to provide a safe environment for people to improve their skills and fitness while instilling a social team aspect in an area where these types of opportunities are limited. Visit the Union Thai Facebook page to find out more & follow their latest updates!

"We will use the funding from US2U Consulting to buy more equipment for our training sessions including another punch bag and more floor mats" said Marcos. The group are looking for more funding so they can buy uniforms and wish to expand their services to the broader goal of helping troubled children and supporting positive mental health.

YMCA Norfolk Charity Ball 14th June 2019

US2U Consulting was pleased to attend and sponsor the annual YMCA Norfolk Ball on Friday 14th June; a great evening to raise money for a great organisation which helps so many young people. 

"This is our third year of supporting the charity and yet again we heard some moving stories from some of the local young people who have been helped by the YMCA following years of family abuse, homelessness and mental health issues", said Rachel Blackburn.

YMCA Norfolk is also one of our delivery partners for helping our clients recognise and support staff with mental health issues.

Producing a Robust Business Plan with Women In Norwich

Seven months since Rachel Blackburn launched the Women In Norwich initiative to encourage more women to develop their business to address the gender imbalance, she delivered a two hour masterclass for the group, focusing on Producing a Robust Business Plan. The event was sponsored by No 8, Thorpe Road who kindly let the group use their excellent facilities to deliver the session. The reputation of the group has spread and one person travelled up from Chelmsford to participate.

"It is great to see the group continuing to provide supportive monthly sessions for the community. And we have been able to continue with our vision of making the sessions free to attend to void that barrier to entry." said Rachel.

Each person was encouraged to produce or update their own business plan and the feedback has been very positive:

"Thank you so much for a fantastic evening! It was a real pleasure to listen to you - a fascinating insight into your busy world and great Master Class."

"Thanks very much for yesterday evening, it was a really inspiring session and great to be part of the group for the evening too."

"Thank you for the warm welcome last night and a fantastic, very informative and thought-provoking evening."
