We announced the launch of 300 Seconds at the first #digitalwomen-themed Teacamp in April 2013, so we’re pleased as punch to be participating in the second, enlarged event on 9 October. 

Hosted at the National Audit Office, this year’s event is bigger and better, with a mixture of talks and workshops.

This year’s focus is on practical information and real life experience to help #digitalwomen make their way in the professional world. We’re holding a workshop session on public speaking and improving your visibility.

There will also be talks from some great female speakers on some of the practical issues facing women in digital or STEM.

  • Sarah Jennings (@ladyleolion) will be talking about digital as the enabler for innovation and collaboration, and considering why women are doing so well in this space.
  • Sinead Mac Manus (@sineadmacmanus), CEO of Fluency, will be talking about her experiences getting a startup off the ground.
  • Mazz Mosely (@mnowster) will be talking about leadership skills in technical teams, and what it’s like being a manager in a very male industry.
  • Sarah Drinkwater (@sarahdrinkwater) will be discussing her experiences of Head of Google Campus, and what she’s doing to make the space more appealing to women.

The event will close with a panel on “leaning in”, chaired by Charlotte Jee. Confirmed panellists include Jan Ford and the excellent Mary McKenna.
