Liquid Learning, Women in ICT and Digital Leadership Summit 2019

Inspired. Motivated. Focused. Three words summarising how I felt walking out after two days at the Liquid Learning, Women in ICT and Digital Leadership Summit 2019. I’m Emma Judd, Group Marketing Manager at Place Design Group and I was the lucky winner of the Women in Digital LinkedIn competition, to attend this Summit from July

Where do the women go after 45?

Google calls them Greyglers. A term applied to anyone in their team over the age of 40. While likely intended as a charming moniker, it is reasonably insulting – implying that Google belongs to those sub-40. What it also manages to do is put a name to the age discrimination facing both men and women. Professionals who are keen to return to work after

The salary discrepancy – why and the (albeit gendered) way to help fix it

Women earn less than men. It’s hard to determine why, when in many instances men and women are equally educated, have the same experience and perform exactly the same roles. Yet the data proves it to be true and the disparity is not being fixed in a hurry. The gendered salary disparity doesn’t discriminate against industry and is noted to also effect women in the glittery hills of Hollywood. Jennifer Lawrence, one actress

Addicted to Digital? It’s Time to Strategically Switch-Off

Is this you…almost you…or somebody you know? You’re in bed and the familiar glow of your mobile phone hovers inches from your face, as your thumb restlessly scrolls through another social feed before punching the browser app. Nothing, nothing, nothing – you’ve read everything you could read and your inbox is close to empty, save

Wide eyed and bushy tailed? you must be a grad

Ten years into the workforce, I look upon that final year of university as one of the most exciting times in ones life. The world literally is your oyster (unless you have failed your final year exams. In which case it wasn't your fault, life is basically playing a sick joke on you). With perspective, the success recipe

The Jungle Gym of Success

Men will actively plan out their careers while only 1 in 20 women will do the same. According to Dianne Jeans from DSITIA, women are opportunists and tend to flow through a much less structured path. For me this comment can be equated to getting a bear hug from my mum, and judging from the simultaneous assertive head nodding in the

My friend, Mr. Mondayitis

According to Urban Dictionary (aka. the urban life code) Mondayitis is described as "a feeling of weariness, sadness, apathy and general distress that many individuals feel when starting the Monday morning work week. If you believe this statement applies to you then this means that you: (a) really don't like your

Digital disruption, recruitment and the search for unicorns

Telling someone that his or her industry or business will face imminent redundancy doesn’t necessarily create the best first impression. It does however create a lasting one. Within a generation where we struggle to hold attention to one factor for more than 30 seconds this should probably qualify as an achievement. I know that Digital

Hunter or the hunted? top tips for getting noticed online

Finding a job is no longer as simple as what it once was. Where candidates were once assessed on face value and reference checks, LinkedIn and Twitter have digitally disrupted the world of recruitment. The Internet is your CV and social channels are your references meaning that your digital footprint must be scrupulously managed. If your digital presence
