Victoria lives in Altrincham, Manchester, with her husband and two daughters. She blogs under the name digitalwitch.north, but assures us she is neither digital nor a witch.
Her talk was about the opportunities for women in the tech sector, showing the benefits women can bring to tech-based businesses. She explained that women are skilled at leadership, strategy and collaboration, all valuable business skills.
She told us how she is raising her girls to be successful in tech, and urged us to action, as we need more women as digital role models for the next generation.
