From Ada Lovelace at Townley Girls Grammar to #girlswithgoals at Bishop Challoner Girls

I’ve just had a fabulous couple of weeks giving talks and being on panels in Manchester, London, Surrey and Oxford. I spoke at three schools: Surbiton High, Townley Girls Grammar and Bishop Challoner girls and met lots of really wonderful pupils and staff 😀

Great view on the train home from fab panel at the Civica conference


The first event was a panel at the Civica EXPO in Manchester. It was a great panel, chaired by Rory Cellan Jones. I somehow managed to take no pics 😮

Speaking at #wintech16

The “Women of Silicon Roundabout” conference #wintech16 was a great conference aimed at women in tech. I listened to several really great talks and also gave one myself.

Catching up with fab Sophie Walker at Lady Val’s networking lunch

After a quick lunch I dashed over to Covent Gardne for Lay Val’s networking lunch. I’m so delighted that Sophie Walker (above) has been elected to compete to be London’s Mayor. I’m a strong supporter of the Women’s Equality Party which Sophie is representing.

“Dreams can come true” my keynote at Bishop Challoner girls school launching #girlswithgoals

Final stop for the day was Bishop Challoner school in Tower Hamlets. I gave a keynote called “Dreams can come true” for 100 girls and their parents at the #girlswithgoals event. There were several other speakers who were really great, plus singing from the extremely talented Nathalie Reid, dance and cheerleading too. It was a great evening. Hats off to the staff and students at Bishop Challoner for a fabulous evening.

Signing my book “Saving Bletchley Park” for pupils at Bishop Challoner

I really enjoyed chatting to the fab pupils at Bishop Challoner school

  All in all it was a whirlwind of a few days. I really loved meeting the children and talking to them about Bletchley Park, plus life, the universe and everything 🙂
