Here are some of my favourite resources for problem solving or to immerse yourself either digitally or in person!

 

Community & Professional development

Women who...... My current students will know that I have a bit of a girl crush/obsession with both the book AND the podcast of Otegha Uwagba, get your London fix while meeting an amazing array of women with their business experiences and general positivity. Filthy laughs aplenty, it makes me a bit homesick when I'm listening!

Sign up to the oh so useful newsletter here, join the community here and buy the book here.
