As we celebrate International Women’s Day in 2024, it’s a time not only to celebrate the achievements of women but also to recognise those who are making a profound impact beyond their own spheres. 

At activ Marketing Group, we have the privilege of partnering with clients who exemplify the spirit of inclusivity and empowerment, going above and beyond to create positive change in their communities. We would like to take the opportunity today to shine a light on three remarkable female clients whose dedication and passion are truly inspiring.

Lorraine Senior: Pioneering Reflexology for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

Lorraine Senior is a visionary force in the world of reflexology, having developed a unique framework to support individuals with additional needs through her Functional Reflex Therapy Framework (FRT). Her recent book publication underscores her commitment to sharing her knowledge and expanding accessibility to reflexology. What sets Lorraine apart is not just her innovative approach to wellness but also her tireless efforts to support special schools in Zambia, bringing the benefits of reflexology to those who need it most.

Nominated by Lisa Smith, activ franchisee in North Essex, Lisa speaks of Lorraine’s boundless dedication, stating, “Lorraine is inspirational. Her work is never-ending, and her passion is infectious. I am so glad she is a client.”

Nominated by Tom Marley from activ’s head office team, Tom admires Amy’s unwavering dedication, remarking, “Amy never fails to surprise me. She goes above and beyond for the families that use her nurseries. She is a voice for parents and people who don’t know how to fight for what they need.”
