Hi everyone

Mumsnet’s offered us 5 tickets to give away for its Workfest in Central London on 15 June. Tickets normally cost 95 each.

What’s it about?

Workfest’s aimed at women who are thinking of starting their own business, considering changing career, or returning to work after maternity leave with speakers discussing flexible working and how to make it work, building confidence after a gap from the workplace and how you do it all. There’s more detailed info on Mumsnet's Workfest page.

Where is it?

It takes place at BAFTA in Central London.

What to do?

If you're interested, just reply to this (click on 'post reply') and say:

"Workfest!"


To do this you need to be registered for the Forum (if you're not, when you click reply you'll be taken through the process. It's free, of course).

The giveaway will close at 11am on Thur 30 May, so please get your posts in before then.

APPEAL: Please ONLY reply to this thread if you will check your private messages to see if you've won a ticket next week. If you don't get in contact promptly you won't get your ticket and if there are any remaining tickets they'll be given away.

Also, please DON'T email in, as your name won't be counted, nor include your contact details in this thread as, for your own safety, we don't allow personal details on the public forum and your post may be deleted.

How can an organisation set up to supposedly help Mums have the cheek to charge them 95 for a ticket? If anyone else set this up it would be branded a scam.
Be Alert..........Britain needs lerts.

This was the first time they had run the Workfest event, so there were a few teething problems - lunch provided but nowhere to eat said lunch, seemingly zero consideration for food allergies... But they turned the gents into another toilet for the ladies, set up baby change facilities, were welcoming of babes in arms... Etc. So on the logistics side, there was room for improvement, but didn't do badly.

Onto the speakers - there were a lot of inspirational people talking. Some of the ones who stood out for me were Sarah Brinkley, Geoff Ramm (yes, I know, a man at the event!), Heather McGregor (Miss Moneypenny), Jessica Benjamin and Yasmina Siadatan (who stood in for James Caan).

One of the messages that struck me was about planning time for yourself as well as planning time for work - how many us don't bother and feel constantly knackered?

I know many of us haven't been impressed with Super Scrimpers on here, but actually, Heather McGregor is a remarkable lady, with a career in investment banking, a doctorate and her own business. I have a new found respect for her, and I found her insights thought-provoking.

I wish this had been aimed at women more generally, this was a useful day out for all females, not just mums - but maybe next time.

I would recommend this event, I think the speakers they organised were very high quality, and even if you think you know it all, you'll come away with something to think about. Oh, and a great goodie bag.

Thank you, MSE and Mumsnet!
