August: A fresh start, an Olympic effort

Posted on

Hello ladies!


Well, it’s been a very eventful few months at GGD Towers. Our founder, the lovely Kelly, has moved to sunnier climes in the name of making the games industry even more awesome. But that doesn’t mean the end of GGD! In fact, there will be another dinner in August at our firm favourite venue, CB2; we just need to know when the most people are free for it. It’s looking like either the first or the last week of the month, and it’s the usual drill- heaps of the best buffet dinner in town, a splash of wine, and lots of lovely geek girls to have a natter and network with, all for the bargainous price of £20!

Any questions, give us a shout in the comments here, on our Twitter account @ggdcambridge, or on our Facebook page which we can add you to. And if you’d like to speak at one of our dinners, even just to tell us a bit about your own geek story, we’d love to have you. Previous speakers have included Kelly Vero (our Grand High Leader :P), Claire Blackshaw (former Jagex-er and all round talented lady!) and Laura James (founder of Cambridge Makespace). Drop us a line here, on Twitter, or email girlgeekdinnerscambridge at gmail dot com.

Signing off on this vaguely sunny Friday,

Laura x

Be Here Now. or January 27th

Look what we did! Hee hee hee!

You can get onto eventbrite and buy tickets from them for our event on 30th.

Did you know that the wonderful Claire Blackshaw is our first speaker? She’s going to be talking about “Diversity of Experience, not Status”. Why don’t you drop us a line and tell us what you’d like to see at future events, hell, I might even do a talk!

We Are Gonna Need a Bigger Boat!

Posted on

When I started this a few days ago, I thought that it would be a handful of women in Cambridge who are hooked on technology and wanted to get together! How wrong was I? It looks as though we’re going to have a mammoth bash at the end of September and we’re gonna need some help. I’m looking for a good inaugural speaker. This person (m/f) should be:

  • Successful in their field
  • Entertaining / Informative
  • Cheap! (we’ve got lo/no budget over here)

I’m eager to hear suggestions and will source anything I think is for the benefit of us as a local movement!

Please feel free to make suggestions – anything is welcome!

Hello Girl Geeks Everywhere… in Cambridge!

We have arrived!

Our first dinner is confirmed for end of September! But who will be our speaker? Volunteers please!
