Stylist Life Lessons: book your ticket to learn from Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain


Whether you’re stuck in a rut, struggling to develop your own business or wondering how to get where you want to be in life, you need self-belief. Yet it’s not always something that comes naturally – in a recent Sky survey, 40% of women said they didn’t feel confident. And in the last Women’s Leadership Study from accounting firm KPMG, 67% of women said they needed more support building confidence to feel ready to be leaders. Just think what we could achieve if we shook off those self-doubts. Our next Stylist Life Lessons event, on Tuesday 28 June, could be just the ticket.

This inspiring evening presents successful women sharing tried-and-tested life tips, tailored around confidence. From finding the self-belief to realise your ambitions, to facing up to gaps in your knowledge and learning from failure, they’ll reveal how it all helps to create a rewarding career – and nail that elusive work/life balance too.

And who better to kick off the evening than Great British Bake Off champion Nadiya Hussain, who recently baked the Queen’s 90th birthday cake and released her first cookbook, Nadiya’s Kitchen. After finding the confidence to enter – and win – GBBO, she’ll talk about why it is crucial to getting what you want in life, while tech pioneer Kathryn Parsons, co-founder and CEO of Decoded, whose mission is to increase digital literacy, will share her tips for amping up self-belief. And the leader of the Women’s Equality Party, Sophie Walker, who gained 45,000 supporters in nine months, will share her empowering story about gaining the courage to start a political party and run for London mayor.

Once you’ve heard from each of our speakers, you’ll get a chance to put questions to them. So book your ticket now – it’s the first step to upgrading your confidence in an evening.
