We are delighted to be holding our 3rd National Unconference in Sheffield. This is our 1st National Event ‘Up North!’ Why not make a weekend of it, book a hotel and have a road trip with a group of friends/ colleagues?

Our Hosts:
Sheffield Hallam University, are hosting us, facilitated by Sam Twistleton. Thank you for the space and staff to enable this event to take place.

This year for #IWD17 we explored the theme of #BeBoldForChange- check out the fab #womened blogs @staffrm from our #digimeet and #leadmeet.

The Unconference will build on this by exploring how we can ‘be bold for self’ and ‘be bold for others’.
