We are kindly being hosted by the ACCU again this year at their conference and brilliantly sponsored by Bloomberg.
The event will start with a presentation from Bloomberg (Details to be added)
We will then, as we do every year, use the event to give an overview of the GirlGeekDinners events – what we’ve been up to and are in planning for the year.
We will also update on Women’s Tech Hub workshops and it’s networking events. Then we will be inviting our partners and collaborators to present what they are up to. KWMC, Ladies that UX, WISE, Bristol Data Science and Machine Learning Study Group, CodeHub, Webdev101, Python Dojo and others TBC.
This year we have invited other meetups in the area who are looking to increase their Diversity to showcase what they offer.
Currently this includes the new South West Business Analysis, PHPSW, SW mobile and anyone else that comes to us wanting to showcase. Mail us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to be included.
We’ve set up an Eventbrite event to allow people to sign up outside of the group should they be at the event or from out of town: please sign up here
This is an inclusive event so all are welcome but we shall favour underrepresented groups should there be an oversubscription.
Brilliant News – we have Candide offering to host us for our first event
of 2020. They’re a rapidly growing company with a beautiful gardening
app (you can download it for free .. we have!) https://candidegardening.com.
They are rapidly growing, recruiting and keen to improve diversity in their tech team.
Helen Allsebrook – head of PR will intro the company and what it’s all about
Data fuelled Growth
How can you use data to make fast, confident decisions? Pippa will discuss how to use data and experiments to grow your product and how data can align marketing campaigns, engineering and product.
About Pippa Churcher
Pippa is head of Growth at
Bristol-based Candide, the app for plant-loving humans founded in 2018. She
manages experiments to optimise acquisition and retention, but her career
initially started by studying Anthropology at university. She then worked at
the National Trust, connecting people with conservation through events and
marketing, moving to another technology company before finding Candide, where
she helps create a digital space for plant and nature lovers.
She also climbs a lot of
mountains – the relevance of which will be divulged during her talk!
As always, we welcome men to our group, but to keep our audience predominantly female, we ask that all men are accompanied by a woman (just add a +1 on when you sign up here )
A BIG THANKS to all our wonderful members, sponsors, speakers and attendees for another great year. We thought we’d treat you to a picture of a Christmas dog and baby to welcome in the winter solstice. We will be back and are currently planning our next year’s activities.
