We’re committed to holding and attending events all around the UK. Here’s our current line-up – but do get in touch with us if you think we’ve missed something or would like to invite us along!

We promise we’re not bad – our founder has spoken at and hosted events for groups anywhere between 10 – 250 people and here’s just a couple of nice things people said afterwards…

Jem came to Queen Mary to do a freelancing masterclass and the students were more than happy listening to her advice and knowledge. She answered all questions and gave the students some self-belief that they can succeed with freelancing. We had 100% positive feedback and by the next day, two ofour students were paid freelancers.

I’ve seen Jem give talks and present awards several times now, most notably at Student Publication Association Awards 2017. Jem is fun, engaging and understands the tone of an event (be it debauched or distinctly serious). I’d highly recommend as a host or a speaker at any event.
