To be fair we are starting to get into our stride and not wearing shoes or getting dressed is interesting, especially still wearing pj bottoms on work calls!
It was great to catch up with some of you this week and we loved the Pyjamas! Currently we are available for support online in place of our Free Three Fridays (f3F) & Workshop Wednesdays for zoom catch-ups. We are happy to discuss what members are looking for support wise and also just to catch up while we look into our future workshop options. Dress code ‘Casual’ it appears! Sign up on our meetup here or mail us on firstname.lastname@example.org for details.

For Mentoring we found this great group and had a chat with them – they are based in New Zealand but are International OneUpOneDown and are absolutely lovely! “We’re a platform for matching women mentors and mentees together. We’re currently focusing women in business and tech.Mentor matches last just 3 months. Matches are made based on the specific areas of professional and/or personal development the mentee is looking for, e.g. biz dev, marketing, leadership, communication, confidence.”
