Stepping out of my comfort zone, is definitely NOT one of my favourite past times, but like most, I know it’s inevitable for progress, change, or just getting on in life. This year, my International Women’s Day projects spanned a few months, and saw me do a few new things that scared me!
You'd be forgiven for thinking the biggest month for celebrations around women and women’s rights and issues, would be March. But October, amongst it's amazing colours, textures and of course, Halloween, there is a trend setting around celebrating women in technology and business. London, Manchester, Lancashire, Scotland and South Africa were among the locations, here's the overview of the events and topics.
I'm so chuffed to have been listed in this 111 women in the UK who could speak at your tech event list in August, but the real story is why is this list even needed. I was talking to a journalist who knew that I "did Women in Tech stuff" and remembered our Social Media for Women Conference back in 2013, here's an overview of my journey so far, and what we need to do to effect change.
The month of August has been super busy so it was great to close it off in a smart, organised, classy fashion, with a fantastic evening speaking to the brilliant people at Flock Global in London. I shared some of my history, past expeirnces of everything "getting a bit too much" and how to boost our Productivity with the right tools and processes, to get a great work/life balance. I'm one of the Founding50 members at FlockGlobal and LOVE the network and what it represents. The three founding beliefs are Collaboration, Knowle...
I was super excited to be invited to talk at Women In Tech Nottingham, and picking my geekiest favourite at the moment, I focused my interactive talk around making us as super productive as possible.

This week I did three super awesome things, North and South UK, and I wanted to share these with you, in the hope that somehow it inspires you to support the IWD2016 cause and what it stands for too. It might only be one day, but the cause is ever-running and needs your support.
Asked to speak at ESRC's Festival of Social Science on the "positives" side, here's why I think Digital Friendships and Relationships are so important in today's world.
Back in December, I was honoured to be asked to write for an academic publication around creative learning. Now, in August 2015, the book is now published and along with another 27 chapter writers, I'm the author of Chapter 13 - Digital Storytelling : Media That Makes a Difference.
After attending the first #stoptalkingstartdoing event a few months back, the lovely Dinal Limbachia asked me to speak on my work with Digital Inclusion and some of the barriers to consider and how to go about overcoming them.
