A few weeks ago, I had the absolute pleasure of speaking at Red Magazine's Career in Tech Day at the Sky Campus in my hometown of Leeds. It was one of the most inspiring events I've ever spoken at or in fact attended for that matter; as the day was shar...

My Time at the FunFest Blogger Summit 2015 (Including my Keynote Speech from Maternity Leave to Professional Blogger)
