We’re on a Steve Jobs style retreat this week

seasise retreat

In Falmouth

Okay not exactly a retreat more of a bit of a breakdown, re-energize and feedback on the year coupled with a bit of fresh air, shopping, exercise and we suspect some drinking (apparently Jacobs Ladder is the place to be). We’ve listened to the great TEDxBristol folk and will re:BOOT!

We have a lot of interest from companies wishing to engage and sponsor the Workshop Wednesdays which is great news. We will be putting together some packages to better support companies and enable us to feed ourselves (and pay for Falmouth! [just joshing as that’s out of our own pockets])

Whilst we are away though our lovely friends and members are stepping in for us to host our

This week it’s all about TEDxBristol!

TEDx speakers lineup

A big thanks to all our lovely sponsors and volunteers that came to our tech3shed careers fair on Saturday, you are what makes it worth it. We had some great discussions and it was brilliant to also see so many of our women who have got back into the industry and see you all doing so well!

We’re super excited to be partnered with TEDx Bristol and will be there on the 17th to meet all the lovely attendees and speakers.

There is a brilliant line up of speakers for this year’s TEDxBristol! 

They are an unbelievably inspiring group of individuals with a whole spectrum of ideas, from how we tackle antibiotic resistance, to rebooting the way we teach young people about sex, or the fashion industry’s attitude to disabled people. These really are Bristol’s trailblazers and innovators. 

You can be there and join them at Reflect: Rethink: Reboot on 17 November at Bristol Old Vic – a day of live inspirational talks and activities focused on not just surviving, but thriving in uncertain times. Tickets are on sale now!

Tech-wise theres a talk from Paul Wiseall from DEATH.io which helps plan around things such as your digital death, Drew Benvie talking about how to reboot social media and Stephanie Campbell CEO of Bristol-based OKKO Health rethinking how we approach health in the digital age. There’s loads of other great speakers there too that should pique your interest and you can use our discount as one of our members TEDXFRIEND19.
