'Interesting, engaging and funny. Jennifer dispelled a lot of myths about nutrition. Highly interactive with a wealth of knowledge to help understand key health principles now and for the future.'
Deborah, Business Coach and Mentor
'Our team were very sceptical at first with long standing beliefs in what our idea of health nutrition were about. Boy we were wrong. Jen really helped to dispel myths, identify bad habits and give us the tools to make better informed choices. Jen was interesting, funny and helped us understand complex topics in an easy way. The real tell was the next day when a fizzy drink wasn’t in sight! Great presentation and great talk!'

Corporate Wellbeing with Jennifer
I am a qualified Nutritional Therapist and NLP coach. I was inspired to research the impact nutrition can have on the functioning of the body having first hand experience of someone with a life limiting illness using nutritional changes to improve their life expectancy and make a dramatic difference to the quality of their life.
I have been running my private practice for over 6 years, working with individuals as well as charities including Shine, Longfield Hospice and Maggie's Cancer Centre.
In recent years my focus has turned to Corporate nutrition and wellbeing. Whilst having spent many years working with people to try and reverse ill-health, I decided to focus on nutrition for people and corporations that is life-enforcing to reduce stress, boost energy and overall physical and mental vitality of the employees in the workplace.
In 2017, Britain's Healthiest Workplace Survey carried out research on 32,000 employees across various industries and revealed that employees lose, on average, the equivalent of 30.4 days of productive time annually due to sick days or underperformance in the office as a result of ill-health. This is the equivalent to 6 weeks work for each employee.
By engaging with the employees well-being needs, educating them on the functioning of their body and empowering them with the knowledge they need, you are creating not only a more productive and energised team, but you are also giving the individuals the tools they will need to support their physical and mental health now and into the future.

‘The Lunch & Learn session was excellent. Wish it had been longer, as a huge topic to cover in just an hour.
However, the information was incredibly useful and delivered in a nice, “easy to follow and understand” format.
The experiment with the three containers clearly demonstrated the effect that different food groups can have on an individual.
Most definitely a topic to be pursued!!!’
'Thank you very much to Jennifer McDiarmid for coming into the office today to provide advice and guidance on nutrition and the impacts it has on our day! Highly recommend Jennifer for a talk at your business. Very well delivered with a blend of knowledge and interactivity. Jen also stayed afterwards for a number of 121 consultations'
