S & A Women's Promotions

A Platform for Women's Voices

JOIN US FOR A CUP OF TEA & LOVE AT ONE OF OUR SAWP EVENTS!

WELCOME TO S & A WOMEN'S PROMOTIONS!

From an innate passion for women's interests and ministry, Shalisa had a "back-of-an-envelope" brainstorm to give women a chance to share their stories and experience, to others like themselves.  Having had the vision, she asked her friend, Alison to join her.  S & A Women's Promotions: A Platform for Women's Voices was born!

 

Between them, they draw on their years of experience and testimonies, which reflect the majority of what a lot of "ordinary women with extraordinary stories" can identify with.

 

They have a heart for people, especially women and, as Shalisa likes to say, desire to see women "be the best that they can be".  They bring love, laughter and learning to their events (and their events always seem to include afternoon tea...!)

 

They invite you to the SAWP platform to share your story.  They can testify that there's healing in the sharing. 

SAWP FACILITATORS, SHALISA & ALISON: ALWAYS A HELPING HAND!

SHALISA ANTHONY, VISIONARY & FOUNDER OF SAWP: A PLATFORM FOR WOMEN'S VOICES

Shalisa Anthony, SAWP Founder

Shalisa Anthony, the founder of SAWP has over 30 years public sector experience in various UK Government Departments and a trade union. 

 

On her life journey, Shalisa has been blessed to meet many wonderful women, who have shared their life stories, testimonies and experiences. From this, she saw the need to establish a not-for-profit organisation to enable women to share their stories to a wider audience, to both enable and empower both the listeners - as well as themselves. But what really drives her, is her creativity, passion and vision.

 

Shalisa is an author with five books and many relevant and timely publications still in the pipeline, awaiting the final flourish of her pen! She is PASSIONATE about seeing women excel and “be the best that they can be”.

Given her vast experience and excellent administration, interpersonal and communication skills, Shalisa is driven to ensure SAWP is indeed a platform for “Ordinary Women with Extraordinary Stories” .

 

Her strong belief in the pursuit of excellence and self-empowerment coupled with the need to remain always humble and teachable, is her main reason for establishing and continuing to promote the vision and ethos that is S&A Women's Promotions: A Platform for Women’s Voices.

 

Shalisa invites and welcomes you to take the opportunity to step up on the SAWP Platform and share your story. There is healing in the sharing….

ALISON AGARD, CO-FOUNDER OF SAWP & FOUNDER OF EHB

Alison Agard, co founder of SAWP and founder of Esther's Heartbeat (EHB), which grew out of her work with SAWP.  She's excited at the promising new beginnings in which EHB will take her.

 

Alison received her Diploma in Higher Education Nursing form the University of Hertfordshire UK and further modules of BSc(Honours) Degree in Midwifery also from this university, going on to work as an RGN in hospital in 1997 and later on to community nursing roles.

 

During her years as a community nurse 12 of those years were spent in a role working with children, young people and families experiencing differing levels of safeguarding issues. This role involved working with colleagues from the health service, social care, and other specialists to ensure that the needs of those in her care were appropriately met.

 

She is a mother of four children and two grandchildren and a keen crafter, creating hand crafted items including natural skin and hair products. Prior to starting out in nursing, she had various roles including registered child minder, civil servant and a brief period in retail.

 

Alison Agard is a life long learner and has engaged in various learning opportunities some professional and some purely for personal interest and all to allow personal growth. Part of her learning and growth comes from international travel which is one of her passions.

 

Alison Agard is currently working on her auto biography to promote personal growth, healing and development as well as to encourage, inspire and motivate others to believe in themselves.

There's a place on the SAWP platform for EVERY woman
