“I thought this was an outstanding event and I would love it if there were more of them. I thought the speakers were fascinating. The experience and insights of every one of them was captivating, and their candour and warmth made for a wonderful atmosphere I’ve rarely seen at such a talk.”

Miles Clapham (2000, Mathematics and Computation), attended Teddy Talks XI: ‘Blogs, business, books and booze: Aularian women in the modern economy’
