Learn more about the menopause

There are many myths and misconceptions surrounding the menopause, so it’s essential to know the facts – and a great way to do this is to arrange a webinar by a leading expert and public speaker. Norma Goldman, founder and director of The Menopause Exchange, usually presents talks and workshops but because of the current situation she’s presenting Zoom webinars instead.

Norma Goldman BPharm. (Hons) MRPharmS. MSc. (health promotion) has a pharmacy degree and is a qualified health promotion specialist. She has been presenting talks on the menopause for over 21 years, and her in-depth knowledge has helped thousands of women enjoy a more comfortable menopause. Her book ‘The Menopause – ask the experts’ was published by Hammersmith Press. Each issue of The Menopause Exchange’s free quarterly newsletter is emailed to over 10,000 people, including women, healthcare professionals, workplace managers and journalists.

Norma offers two webinars: ‘Understanding the menopause’ (for women, men, healthcare professionals and journalists) and ‘The menopause at work’ (for workplaces, companies, organisations, women’s groups, exhibitions/conferences and health spas and clubs). If you would like to attend a webinar, or would like to arrange one for your workplace, please email Norma on
