WiST Webinar | Put Yourself Out There: Networking 101

16th September 2022 @ 11:45 am - 1:15 pm

Networking is something we all know we should be doing but most of us dread, especially in a digital world. But it doesn’t have to be difficult or awkward. We want to help you find out how to network effectively by making it fun, targeted and actually what it should be – a tool to help you develop yourself, your career and your organisation.

In this lunchtime talk on 16th September, we will welcome Sam Wheeler, Big Lemon Co-Owner and Admiral of Ops who will chat about her many career changes and how she managed this through the power of effective networking.

A rare combination in tech – a ninja strategist, entrepreneur, co-production advocate and director who dedicates her spare time to inspiring the next generation of tech talent and wider communities. She combines commercial acumen with infectious, inspirational energy.

What gets Sam out of bed in the morning? What motivates her? Creating positive change in the world through innovative digital solutions that have the user’s voice at their heart. Passionate about what tech can do for people, the planet and communities, Sam has a long track record of building partnerships, networks and high-performing teams to deliver positive outcomes, both in a commercial and voluntary capacity. She has achieved much of this while juggling solo motherhood, a testament to her dedication to the sector and her unwavering belief in tech’s potential to create a better world. She is a formidable powerhouse who brings sunshine and positivity.

This event is open to women from any professional background, especially those who have a keen interest in technology and wish to learn from other inspirational women within the technology sector.

Our aim is to bring together like-minded women to build strong and supportive networks.
