I thought the webinar was fantastic and felt really motivated and inspired afterwards. I have a session booked in July at a girls school and even though it isn’t specifically a people like me event, there was so much useful information in the webinar that I can use. Things like girls relating to failure more, keeping their options open, being more in the know about post GCSE options etc.
