London Tech Ladies…How to thrive in a male dominated world

Sonya Barlow, founder of Like Minded Females and TEDx speaker will be with us for a provocative session to challenge LondonTechLadies to take a new perspective and succeed in a male dominated world. She’ll be sharing her own story of acting with confidence and saying yes to opportunities, including learnings, key thoughts and real actions which you can implement and see success!

An interactive workshop which will help you to:
-Identify your real allies at work
-Recognise traits that could be holding you back as a woman
-Craft your communication style for maximum impact

The session will be fun, informal and learning through practical exercises with your community. We will explore the common topics and questions raised in the workplace, socially and in events we host. Together we will explore how we as women can handle challenging situations.

She will share actionable examples which can change your mindset, approach and help you to thrive!

Questions comments and scenarios can be emailed over in advance to be shared with Sonya to be discussed anonymously with the group, including insights, action points and ways to thrive!

LondonTechLadies events are open to anyone – men & women from any industry or background are welcome.
