Event description
This month's speakers are going to share how they've overcome their biggest fears.

About this Event

It's Hallowe'en...see what we did there? Fancy dress is encouraged!

This event is open to women/enby working in Design & Tech.

Schedule

6:30 - Arrival - drinks and food (inc. vegan & vegetarian options)

7:00 – Welcome and introductions

7:15 - Ellie Patten - Quiet isn't a dirty word

This is a talk for anyone who’s sick of being told they need to ‘come out of their shell’. In a society that favours outgoing and charismatic leaders, collaborative workspaces, and networking, sometimes it feels like the only way to get ahead is to become someone we’re not. But being ‘quiet’ doesn’t have to be a weakness. In this talk, I’ll tell you how I learnt to harness my ‘quiet’ strengths and overcome some of the hurdles of living in a loud world.

7:45 - Joanna Vass - How to take risks (learnings from an introvert)

The fear of taking risks keeps us comfortable but hinders our growth. Relying on others, perfectionism, self-doubt are all habits that can prevent us from making changes in our lives. As an introvert, I’m naturally risk-averse and have to make calculated decisions. In this talk, I’ll share my story of learning to take risks in my design career and personal life and how it’s helped shape me. I hope you will leave with some techniques on how to navigate change in your life.

8:15 - We'll open up the floor for any lightning talks ⚡️

The floor is yours if you have something to share

Sandra Pallier - From climate fear to taking action

Frederike De Zutter & Abby Doherty

8:30 - Move on to a bar
