HOW WAS IT LAST TIME?

Below is a feedback from one of the attendees at the March 2017 event.  We love the way she perfectly summarised what happened on the day!   From 400+ attendees, we doubled it back in October and are looking to welcome 1500+ women in tech (or women wanting to get into tech) to the event.  Make sure you don't miss out!  (Also you can watch this short video on YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zr35fIpEh1Q)
