Caroline Powell - Founder and Facilitator
After a successful career in business, Caroline founded A Slice of Happiness in November 2017, volunteering with those affected by Homelessness. She has now completed several programmes in Watford, spoke at the 2019 London Homelessness Conference, 2020 Three Principles Conference, and was invited to Buckingham Palace in recognition for her work.
Caroline has experienced homelessness herself and is blown away at how this understanding has transformed her life. So much so that she has given up a 28 year career to be of service to those in the community using this simple yet powerful understanding.
Throughout COVID19, she has also established partnerships with Coventry University Research Centre and the NHS. You can learn more about Caroline by visiting her private site at www.cpacademy.co.uk

Susan Marmot - Facilitator
Susan works with people from a wide variety of sectors. She is the co founder and co director of a brand new social enterprise called The Big Simple (CIC) which aims to work with young disadvantaged adults, especially those exiting the care system, and show them what is possible when we understand how the mind works.
She has spent the last 5 years working at Beyond Recovery (CIC), helping people in prison discover who they are and who they can be when they are not caught up in their usual thinking. For the last 5 years she has been on the faculty of the One Thought Foundation’s programme and has trained many practitioners working in the field today. She co-facilitates a programme called Relationship Ready where, after her own love life turned around so dramatically, she loves helping people to find and sustain loving relationships. She also works with private clients and has helped many people who have been struggling to find mental health.
She loves what she does and is grateful for the freedom of mind she has discovered for herself and is passionate about sharing what has changed her life so much and made it easier
