Our annual Festival of Inspiration, Stylist Live, is returning to Olympia London this November and tickets are now on sale. 

From the 9-11 November, Stylist Live is taking over Olympia London for an unmissable three-day festival, featuring a mix of over 60 sessions and 100 speakers across our four stages.

Here’s our lowdown on the weekend’s must-see talks. 

A Year in Our Pants: Ditching judgement and smashing taboos with Bryony Gordon

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.

Empathy, Instinct and Trust: Mary Portas’ masterclass in working like a woman

What is it?

Learn how to trust the more empathetic side of your personality to get a promotion, pay rise and just get noticed. Tired of hardening herself in front of the media and colleagues, renowned broadcaster, entrepreneur and retail consultant, Mary Portas is leading a campaign for change in the workplace. Join us as we unpick what her new book ‘Work Like A Woman’ and her manifesto could mean for the way we all work. Because the future is still female.

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

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.

Why You Need to be More Mishal Husain

What is it?

So, why do you need to be more like Mishal? Well, as one of the UK’s favourite journalists, Mishal presents BBC Radio 4’s influential Today programme and is at the top of her broadcasting game regularly presenting the news. Her 20-year career has seen her report around the world interviewing everyone from Prime Ministers to Harry and Meghan in their first engagement interview, after they specifically asked for Mishal. So, to discover how to land your dream job and climb to the top of your career, join us as Mishal takes us through her new book, The Skills, and lets us in on the secrets to her success.

Caitlin Moran’s Happy Ending

What is it?

We’ll be putting the weekend’s best, boldest and most surprising questions to Ms Moran, alongside discussing her latest book, How To Be Famous, and the upcoming, and much anticipated, film adaptation of How To Build A Girl. Join us on the front row for what’s sure to be an unmissable festival crescendo. We couldn’t wish for a happy ending from anyone else.
