INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY 2021

In recognition of International Women’s Day (March 8th), we shine a light on some of the female entrepreneurs and company directors based at Wilky Workspace.

Sally Fish, THE WILKY GROUP

Sally is a qualified Chartered Surveyor and provides specialist property support to our Business Centre management and clients. At the beginning of last year, she arranged with the Valuation Office for business rates to be charged on a suite-by-suite basis, which, when the Pandemic struck, enabled occupiers to benefit from Small Business Rates Relief. This, in turn gave access to the Small Business Grant and a total of £260,000 was paid to occupiers by Government. wilky.co.uk

Berna Basson, REGAINED MOVEMENT

Berna is a functional Pilates and Applied Yoga teacher, and an NKT therapist. She has a Level 4 Management of Lower Back Pain, a sports massage diploma and studied Anatomy in Motion (AiM) on the foot with Gary Ward which led her in the direction of movement-based therapy. More recently, she obtained a level 2 in NeuroKinetic Therapy – a muscle testing protocol which helps to reset muscle imbalances. Her interest is in the most essential movements of the human body – those movements that, once lost through injury, poor posture, operations, etc. cause tightness and often pain. Through observing her clients move she aims to identify the lost movement and retrain that to the body. bernabasson@yahoo.com
