It actually worked perfectly as we were able to run events 100% focussed on our somewhat famous lightning talks. It’s really important to us as a community to be a safe space for so many of you to take your first steps into public speaking. So if you were one of our many lightning speakers this year WELL DONE! It’s easy to forget the good things this year, and the things we accomplished, so this is a little reminder!
Another top highlight for us was to be able to secure sponsorship to cover professional coaches, such as Ali Levin and Tiwa Ogunlesi. Both of these women had such a presence, it felt that they were in the same room as us. Being part of a community of supportive women is the reason we started Triangirls in the first place and we’re over the moon that the community aspect is still holding strong even though we’ve been apart from each other for nearly a year now.
This year has taught us to really think about what’s important to us, that we can overcome anything and that we can still support each other, regardless of where we are in the world.
We’d love to hear from you if any of our talks have inspired you to move jobs, go freelance, seek a promotion…Anything! Not only does it reassure us that the work we are doing with this community is in the right direction but it also helps us look to more sponsors who can help us get the message about Triangirls out there.
