From the Inside Out is a group exhibition of female artists that explores the variety
These artists utilise the immediacy and directness of the drawn line to document experience, lived or imagined, giving form to memories and private thoughts. Taking inspiration from literature, popular culture and folklore, the artists’ use drawing to tell personal stories about age, sexuality, gender, the domestic and politics.
The works incorporate assemblage and collage, testing the boundaries of drawing as it merges with sculpture. Traditional craft techniques such embroidery, quilting, and domestic materials are employed as a conceptual strategy from which to explore the construction of female identity. Exploring states of being, both interior and exterior, the artists tell stories that are as personal as they are universal.
Private view: 19 September 6.30-8pm
Artists – Nilbar Güreş, Marie Jacotey, Athena Papadopoulos, Emma Talbot

Please join the Bloomberg Military Veterans Community and the Bloomberg Women’s Community for a fireside chat with Air Chief
2018 marks the centenaries of the end of World War I, the formation of the RAF, and voting equality in the UK, and this conversation will celebrate these important milestones. Discussion will cover the highs and lows of conducting varied global operations, the lessons we can learn in the Financial Services Industry from their leadership and what the next frontier of military service in Britain sets to achieve.
The conversation will be moderated by Bloomberg TV anchor and Radio presenter Guy Johnson, drinks and canapes will be served immediately after the discussion.
Air Chief Marshal Sir Stephen Hillier is the Chief of the Air Staff, in command of the Royal Air Force since July 2016. He leads a Whole Force of some 35000 Regular and Reserve personnel and nearly 5000 Civil Servants, supported by thousands of contractors. He is personally accountable for the safe and effective operation of over 700 manned and unmanned aircraft and for meeting the airpower needs of Defence on operations world-wide.
Prior to assuming his current appointment, he was the Deputy Chief of Defence Staff (Military Capability) in the Ministry of Defence between 2012 and 2016, responsible for strategic force design, balance of investment and capability coherence across all areas of UK joint military capability. He has significant other previous experience in MOD capability planning, acquisition and programme delivery. His previous command appointments include Air Officer Commanding Number 2 Group, Officer Commanding RAF Lossiemouth, and Officer Commanding Number II(AC) Squadron.
A Tornado GR4 pilot and flying instructor, he has over 3500 flying hours and extensive operational and command experience, ranging from squadron pilot to theatre commander of British Forces. He received his knighthood in 2014 and was appointed CBE in 2004. He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for operations over Iraq in 1999,and the United States Bronze Star for Iraq operations in 2003.
He is married to Elaine, who has provided incredible support to him and to the wider RAF family for over 30 years, and has 2 grown-up children. Air Chief Marshal Hillier reluctantly now describes himself as a former long distance runner, frustrated by injury. Instead he now relaxes by road and mountain biking, photography, hill-walking and reading.
Wing Commander Caz Viles embarked on her Royal Air Force career as a pilot bursar on Southampton University Air Squadron (SUAS). Following the completion of her Biochemistry degree she commenced Initial Officer Training in 2001. After multi-engine pilot training she was then posted to the C130J on XXIV Sqn. Tours as a co-pilot and captain followed, which included numerous detachments supporting Op TELIC and Op HERRICK. During this time she also undertook the role of pilot SME within the Training Support Team, responsible for the delivery of an aircraft block upgrade and providing the transition planning for the C130J Fleet’s move to RAF Brize Norton.
Promoted in 2014 she remained on the C130J Force as the 30 Sqn 2ic. After ten years of continual service on the C130J Fleet she moved to MOD Main Building to a capability desk officer role in Finance and Military Capability. This appointment provided oversight and the development of ATAAR and ISTAR options during a challenging SDSR 2015. Wing Commander Viles was then selected for promotion and Advanced Staff Trg at Shrivenham before taking command of 32 (The Royal) Squadron in December 2017.
Wing Commander Viles is married to Nigel and is a keen sailor who is found on most weekends exploring the south coastal waters. As her time allows, she also dabbles in ‘fair weather’ road cycling and has even been known to attempt the odd sprint triathlon.

WHAT WE WILL BE COVERING
Own Your Own PR: Create a Buzz Around Your Business Without Breaking the Bank – Katherine Baldwin
Getting your business or brand featured in the media isn’t as difficult as you think. You just need to know how journalists, editors and producers think. You need to know what they want, how and when they want it, and how to deliver it to them in a way that’ll make them sit up and listen. In this session, Katherine will share some key tools of the journalism and PR trades that can help you attract great publicity for yourself, your product or your organisation. These tools include: effective storytelling; finding a hook or peg for your story; locating journalists’ contact details; and writing concise email pitches that will get you noticed. You’ll also hear why most press releases end up in the trash. If you would like to be featured in the local or national media, this session will show you how.
How to price for profit – Hannah Martin, Talented Ladies Club
Are you making common pricing and sales mistakes that mean you’re working too cheaply – and putting off your ideal customers? Hannah reveals the secrets of pricing for profit, and how to get that all-important Profit Mindset.
Fireside Chat with Sara Tateno, Founder of Happity
How do you start a tech start-up when you’re a mum with no technical experience? Sara had an idea for an app when she was 7 month’s pregnant and being made redundant from work. At the time she didn’t have the first clue on how to buy a domain name and had never started a business before, but she didn’t let that stop her! Join Erin and Sara in conversation to find out how she managed to code the site from scratch, raise funding and launch it to over 60,000 users – all whilst working flexibly from home.
Taming Your Inner Critic with Jess Baker
We all experience negative self-talk or self-doubt at some point in our life. It’s particularly dominant when you are stepping outside your comfort zone, taking on a new challenge, or trying something for the first time. Some of us are more susceptible to it than others, but the harder you try to turn it off, the louder and more dominant it becomes.
In this interactive session you’ll discover the psychology and neuroscience of how your mind is constantly holding you back. You’ll learn how to reclaim your headspace to allow you to focus on things you deserve to have in your life, business, and your relationships.
Winning ways with content – Glenda Shawley, The Training Pack
It was Bill Gates who coined the term ‘Content is King’ back in 1996 and he wasn’t wrong. But what content, where and how do you keep up without content creation taking over your life? In this talk I’ll share some practical ideas for making content work for you and your business. We’ll discuss fitting content into your marketing plan and to your diary, finding content ideas and creating engagement so that your content creation really works for you.
How to manage your time in a world of 24/7 social media – Shelley Henderson
Shelley will be sharing time management strategies to help you to overcome overwhelm when you’re trying to juggle many plates as a small business owner

As Christmas is vast approaching, there’s no better way to kick start the festivities and get you into the spirit with our Yuletide networking social, featuring inspiring stories
DevelopHer, PayPal Unity and SYZYGY invite you to join us on the 29th Nov, as we bring together some of the top leaders in the tech/digital industry who will share personal stories and practical advice on how utilising your own support network (from mentoring to building your own allies) helped overcome challenges and influenced their break through career moments.
On the night, you’ll have the chance to build your very own support network, and make some new connections for the new year. There’ll be wine, mince pies, a christmas gift or two, and a DJ set to end your year on a high!
