How to Negotiate a Pay Rise

What is it?

In the UK in 2018 women still only account for 25% of higher-rate taxpayers - so while we wait for society to hurry the hell up, join the founder of the female lead, Edwina Dunn and arm yourself with the confidence to speak up and the know-how to negotiate a better deal.

A Year in Our Pants: Ditching judgement and smashing taboos 

What is it?

Running a marathon takes stamina. Running a marathon in your underwear takes stamina - and sass - something model Jada and journalist and mental health campaigner Bryony have in spades. It was the stigma around size and exercise that initially inspired them to run this year’s London Marathon sans clothes, and the joy and sense of community they experienced is now driving them to take the conversation further on stage with Stylist. And they’ll be doing that in just their underwear too. Of course.

The Other Side of Fear (how to realise your dreams)

What is it?

Author, chef, presenter (and of course, baker to Her Royal Highness) Nadiya leapt into the public eye after winning Great British Bake Off and soon discovered the pressures of fame. Three years on, with an impressive portfolio career and, still saying yes to new challenges, Nadiya reveals how she’s worked to get beyond fear and doubt to realise her dreams.
