Blueberry wins 'divorce fair' contract
East Sussex-based Blueberry Public Relations has won the contract to promote London’s first Starting Over Show and Brighton’s second event.
The UK’s first Starting Over Show, which was held in Brighton on 15 March, was aimed at anyone going through a divorce or relationship break up. The event, the brainchild of single mother-of-three Suzy Miller, received worldwide media attention with nearly every national paper attending. Suzy also appeared on BBC Breakfast News, BBC South East, Meridian TV, Five Live and BBC Radio 4’s You and Yours, as well as many other shows.
Around 500 people had the opportunity to get free advice on everything from estate planning to collaborative divorce and legal, financial and coaching workshops were fully booked. There were also talks by TV divorce coach Francine Kaye and Daisy Dooley Does Divorce author and Daily Mail columnist Anna Pasternak.
Blueberry PR Director Suzi Christie said: “I’m thrilled to be working with the Suzy Miller again – she is an inspirational woman and is so passionate about helping people break up without breaking down by providing access to vital resources.
“There was press interest in the first show from as far away as Sydney, Australia, Taiwan and India as the idea for a Starting Over Show was unique. The next events will be equally exciting and I’m looking forward to building on the success we had in March.”
Suzy Miller added: “We had clear objectives for the first show and wanted it to be platform to launch the Starting Over Show brand. We also wanted to get the message across that the event was not about encouraging divorce but helping people through one of the most devastating periods of their lives.”
The success of the Starting Over Show in March 2009 has spawned several similar divorce fair events but Suzy Miller’s event remains the only one that focuses on getting through the experience in the most positive way possible and looking towards the future.
London’s first Starting Over Show is on 7 March at the Hilton London Metropole in Edgware Road, London, and on 28 March at the Hilton Brighton Metropole.
Exhibitors so far include author and leading life and performance coach Julia Armstrong; Jane Robey, of National Family Mediation; Vena Ramphal, a holistic coach specialising in divorce; Franklin Price & Sarah Ingram of Jeffrey Green Russell Legal Firm, a general service law firm with a specialist matrimonial department; James Pirrie of Family Law in Partnership (FLIP), divorce and family law solicitors, and Charlotte Friedman who runs Divorce Support Groups.
