Speaker, Janine Woodward-Grant, Radstock Carers
Janine Woodward-Grant Senior Development Manager I joined the Carers’ Centre in March 2014. With a background in social enterprise and business development, I was keen to employ the skills I have to help people in my local community. At the Carers’ Centre I can do exactly this, working alongside the team to strengthen and develop the work that we do. I want everyone in Bath and North East Somerset to be aware of the valuable role carers play in our community, and ensure that they gain the support they need and deserve. LinkedIn Profile

Interclub – Speaker Jacki Hill-Murphy MA, FRGS
Is an explorer, teacher, film maker and speaker and has spent the past few years exploring and filming some of the most inhospitable and remote places on earth. There are many reasons why she loves being an explorer including gathering memorable experiences that last forever recorded on film and in writing, pushing herself to the limit and being loosed from her cultural moorings. Her first major expedition was in 1988 when she crossed Africa via the Sahara Desert and West Africa, she has since been to South America, Africa, India, the Caribbean, the Middle East and Russia and lived in Turkey and the United States. Jacki’s favourite quote is: “Off the beaten track is the real world” Isabella Bird.
