Exclusive! Star mum & fearless alpine ski racer Chemmy Alcott on breaking records both on and off the piste

Dec 02 2021

Chimene Mary “Chemmy” Crawford Alcott is the most fearless mum of two I have ever met in my entire media career. Beautiful and confident Chemmy is the real deal. She is an English former World Cup alpine ski racer who competed in all five skiing disciplines (downhill, super G, giant slalom, slalom and combined) and she is a fun mum and has a ‘dream’ TV job these days. Chemmy is the new lead presenter on hit BBC show Ski Sunday alongside Ed Leigh. Not many people know that Chemmy broke not just many bones while skiing but also the world record for number of beer mats flipped and caught in 30 seconds and made it into Guinness World Records. I caught up with her at The Ivy in London.

How you can positively return to work after having a baby

Nov 26 2021
Mumpreneur with pre-school children

When you are ready to return to the world of work, you need to think about more than just yourself. You have to juggle time, commitments and other responsibilities to ensure that your family unit or household runs smoothly and efficiently even when you are not there. Returning to work as positively as possible is a process that you must undertake on your own. You need the support and guidance of your family and your friends, but to make it work, you have to be committed yourself. Once you are committed, you are then ready to face any obstacle or challenge that comes your way.

Chatting to Kate Silverton, star mum, BBC presenter and author of best-seller ‘There’s No Such Thing As ‘Naughty’

Nov 11 2021

When we agreed to meet on Zoom to discuss parenting challenges for my summer 2021 cover interview, I rejoiced as I have always loved Kate Silverton’s reportage style and her cheerful approach to TV presenting. She showed up with curls in her hair as she ‘wanted to look beautiful for our chat’. Her spontaneity, honesty and charming smile made our hour together go by so quickly. Mum to two young children, journalist and children’s mental health advocate, Kate is passionate about her first book There’s No Such Thing As ‘Naughty’: The ground-breaking guide for parents with children aged 0 to 5, in which she shares her new approach to parenting that helps to make family life so much easier and an awful lot more fun!

Our paths are crossing again and on Thursday 18th November 2021, 6.30-7.30pm we will both speak at the LEYF Margaret Horn debate (on Zoom) focused on child obesity, addressing the question:

With one in five children starting school obese, what can the sector do to tackle this crisis?

Everybody is invited to attend and join in the conversation. Tickets are £5 +booking fee per person and all proceeds will be donated to LEYF’s Christmas food bank. Register here.
