A WEIGHT-loss consultant has won recognition for her work.

Carla Weatherill, who runs Slimming World’s Long Lee group and supports other consultants in the area, was among about 150 team developers from the organisation across the UK and Ireland invited to a special ‘thank you day’.

The event took place at Slimming World’s head office in Derbyshire.

Carla, who graduated as a consultant nearly two decades ago, also shared best practice with other guests.

“It was a real honour to be invited – and with it being Slimming World’s golden birthday year it felt extra special!” she said.

“The day itself was so inspirational from start to finish.

“To have had the opportunity to meet and share ideas with other top-performing consultants and managers was an experience I’ll never forget.

“I left Derbyshire brimming with ideas and there’s no doubt the insight will enable me to improve the support I give to other consultants in the area.”

Carla said the event invitation was also recognition for members and the work of her fellow consultants.

She added: “Consultants make the groups the success they are with their fabulous energy, the warm welcome they give to new members and the wonderful, compassionate support they show to each other every week.”
