An elite band of weight-loss consultants with Alfreton-based Slimming World have been given the red-carpet treatment for their exceptional efforts.

A total of 4,500 consultants from across the UK have completed a specalised training programme at the Slimming World Academy, based at the company’s head office. And the top 100, who were in the best-performing 2.5%, were invited to a glittering Gold And Pearl Day at the exclusive Belfry Hotel in Nottingham.

The event recognised the self-employed franchisees for the outstanding work they are now doing in their local areas to help members achieve their dream weight. The day also celebrated the service they give.

Slimming World’s events manager, Rebecca Whalley, said: “It was fantastic to meet so many of our most brilliant consultants all in one place.

“Every consultant has been a member themselves at some stage, ensuring that they understand the difference the right kind of support can make to a person’s chance of achieving long-term weight-loss.

“Hearing them share their stories of how they have gone the extra mile to help their members make healthy changes to achieve their ideal weight made me proud to be part of such a forward-thinking organisation.”

As part of the day, the super slimmers were invited to discuss best practice and share their tips on delivering a first-class weight-management service.

All the guests at the event were treated to a healthy ‘food optimising’ lunch and drinks reception. And they also heard from the company’s directors about Slimming World’s key developments and plans for the future. An interactive workshop, aimed at boosting weight-loss, was staged too.

Slimming World now has 47 years’ experience in helping people lose weight and lead happier and healthier lives, not just through eating plans but also changes to their behaviour. It now has more than 16,000 weekly groups, supporting 900,000 members, across the UK and Ireland
