Warrior Women Events are usually held in venues in Cardiff. During the COVID lockdown, they moved online – meaning you can be anywhere in the world to join in. Regardless of whether they are online or offline, the inspirational events are designed to be thought-provoking, informative and inspiring.
One of the reasons I started blogging was to increase my social life. Weird as that sounds, especially as all of the work you produce is pushed out via a website or social media. I started my blog weeks before my 34th birthday. I have friends, sure, but unlike me, they have young families that take priorities or live far away. Real Girls Wobble was designed as an outlet for me to fill my spare time, improve on my skills, and indulge in my interests.
I knew that there was a network of like-minded women I could get to know. Blogger events and motivating events, like Warrior Women, were being held on my doorstep. I have worked in Marketing for over 15 years, but have no real formal qualifications, so making sure I stay on top of trends has been a must for me. I would often come across these events, and think, “I won’t fit in there”, or “I’ll have nothing in common”. However, on a whim of bravery, I booked one. That was two years ago.
Since then, I have enjoyed attending the events, listening to encouraging stories of women nailing it in their field. As well as keeping up with them on social media. The Warrior Women podcast is also an enlightening listen.
The events online have equally been something to look forward too. Having been on furlough since the end of March, with little but housework, DIY and cooking to concentrate on. The Warrior Women events have been an appointment in the diary. It has also meant that I’ve brushed my hair, put some make-up on, and worn something other than sportswear for the Zoom call. Of course, you don’t have to show your face, but I thought, why not?! It’s also an excuse to pour myself a large glass of wine, or two – not that I need one!
Each event has a different theme, and the one in June was on Storytelling, which has a deep connection for me. I got to hear from the three speakers how they tell the story of their brand. From putting themselves into the story, to make it more personal and assessable to the audience, to ways of improving your own wellness which tells your story.
I was so pleased when the team at Warrior Women approached me and asked if I would write a guest blog, reviewing the event. It is live on their website if you would like to read it:
The next event is on Thursday 16th July 2020, at 8pm, and will last for about 90 minutes. It costs a mere £5.80. The theme is Rising Stars and will showcase four amazing young women who are already on the path to girl power dominance and are already making a difference. More information here:
