Rise Up - Inspiring Stories

Rise Up - Inspiring Stories

Rise Up is back!

Following the success of our inaugural event in Manchester earlier this year, we are very pleased to announce that the Rise Up will be coming to London on Thurs 23rd November and we would like to personally invite you along.

Rise Up was created by two women in the Barclays Digital Creative team who wanted to draw attention to the huge contribution that women are making to digital innovation and technology. As with many other industries, tech companies are dominated by male leaders where all too often, female voices can be lost or drowned out amongst the celebrated successes of their male colleagues. This event aims to give women in tech a platform to tell their stories and to speak on a topic they are passionate about; the hope is that their voices will inspire more women to take up a career in technology and stride forward into leadership roles of their own. 

We had so much amazing feedback following our last event so wanted to build on the Inspiring Stories theme to invite you to hear from another group of funny, feisty, female speakers, all of whom have a lot to share.

The second event focusses on inspiring stories from 3 women in tech and digital with very different backgrounds; taking us through the importance of promoting tech and careers in digital to entry level girls to the valued difference female leaders are making to our male dominated industry. We would also like to provide you with an opportunity to share your own stories, meet new people and have fun!

Increase Your Personal Resilience: Learn How to Cope!

  • Cardlytics 9th Floor, Portland House (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Step Up | Take Your Place | Advance Your Career

  • How well do you manage the stresses and strains of your working life?
  • Are you stressed, burnt out and fed up? You’ve probably lost your resilience!
  • Do you find it hard to bounce back after a tough week?
  • Want to get your mojo back? Then build your resilience muscles!
  • Are you the only one not coping? How many people find it hard to be resilient?

On Thursday 26th October, we'll be looking at three tools for building and maintaining your psychological resilience.

Ladies Who Lead is all about personal and professional development, support and career progression.

Ladies Who Lead offers by invitation only events to its elite community of women (and men) in tech (digital), fintech and the financial services sectors.

Ladies Who Lead provides a safe, encouraging and fertile environment where like-minded leaders and intrapreneurs can share thoughts, exchange ideas, collaborate and flourish. It is a unique community where men are encouraged to attend, to enrich the discussion on women’s issues.

If you would like to attend this event, you'll need to get the password by emailing leadership@talenttio.com

WHY TALENTTIO SET UP LWL

Traditional networking can be uncomfortable - even for the most confident of people. This, in turn, can make it unsatisfying, unfulfilling and eventually unsustainable.

But we know that relationships are built over time, and that a sense of security and trust are essential for relationships to thrive.

Careers are also built over time and female leaders gain more support and sustainable value from the LWL community than they can get from occasional development or career discussions in their workplace. Ongoing support and value are vital for women, who often feel lonely and isolated during their own ‘leadership journey’.

HOW YOU CAN JOIN LWL

With trust, quality and integrity as the highest values we aspire to at LWL, membership is by invitation only. This means that numbers can be controlled and the highest standards maintained. Our Founder & Leader, Henry Rose Lee speaks personally to every applicant before deciding on ‘the fit’. If you'd like to be considered for membership, please let us know. The contact email address is lwl@talenttio.com. Or ... it's free and anyone can join our LinkedIn group 'Ladies Who Lead' VIP Waiting List.

STARTUP

During our startup period, we invited a group of hand-picked founding members to help guide and design the shape of this community.

ONGOING

For our founding members we have made no membership or event charge. However, from 1st April 2017, for our regular networking events, we will be charging a nominal £25 per head, per meeting, to cover refreshments and other overheads.

DEVELOPMENT

As a major function of the LWL community, we offer development and networking opportunities in the form of ice-breakers, activities, talks, workshops, webinars and online learning. We will also be bringing in experts in all aspects of leadership and career progression, and for these sessions there will be an additional charge.

We welcome enquiries and recommend emailing lwl@talenttio.com or calling our office on + 44 (0)1227 832154 for any further information. Thank you.

Food and drink is provided. Please contact the organiser if you have specific dietary requirements.

2X: An Evening of Storytelling

2X: An Evening of Storytelling

Here at The Hustle, we create a lot of content and we host a lot of events. So we know how powerful storytelling can be.

Thing is, in a male-dominated industry (like tech), it’s not uncommon to hear mostly from men.

But we know there are loads of powerful, successful, inspiring women out there. And we wanted to hear their stories.

So, we invited 9 of the most badass women we could find -- all experts in their fields -- and we asked them to tell us a story… a story about something that shaped their journey and led to where they are today.

The only rule: they had 10 minutes to tell it.

The result was magnificent. The stories were outstanding. And the speakers -- well, they were downright heroic.

Which is why we’re doing it again on October 25, 2017 at the Palace of Fine Arts theater in San Francisco. New venue, new speakers, same great vibe.

Join us, won’t you?
