Speakers for our upcoming event

So we’re really excited about announcing the awesome ladies who will be speaking at our Girl Geek Dinners at Nethui on July 8th.

Our first speaker is Merrin Macleod who¬†will talk on her recent work organising Wellington’s Rails Girls, a free weekend event open to all enthusiastic girls and women.

Merrin makes internet at Rabid, is technically a full-time design student, and is full of crazy ideas about making things better for people. She organised Wellington’s first Rails Girls workshop at the beginning of June and will explain to you why Rails Girls is great, why it’s kind of problematic, and what other steps need to take place towards achieving her ulterior motive of a diverse, welcoming and successful technology industry.

Our second speaker is Natasha Lampard. Natasha is the mother of an event called Webstock, a start up called Lil Regie, a dog called Bird and three tiny humans called Belle, Harry and Xanthe.

You can get your ticket right now from here or read details about the event here.

Wellington Girl Geek dinners at Nethui

We have teamed up with the wonderful people at Nethui to bring you Girl Geek Dinners at Nethui! The awesome Internet NZ have sponsored this event and our GGD Nethui event will be held at the Town Hall (Civic Suite) Monday July 8th at 6pm . You do not have to attend Nethui to attend our Girl Geek Dinners event.

This event will be a little different, there will be no sit down dinner. The ticket will include a free drink and lots of finger food instead. There will be a cash bar for further drinks if required. We have some great speakers lined up and we’ll release details closer to the event.

We have 100 tickets available and 20 of these tickets are available for students. Ticket prices are $20 or student ticket prices are $5. We employ an honesty system for student tickets. Please reserve them for students. If you’re a student please use the promotional code ‘g33kgirl_student’ when purchasing a ticket.

Nethui are also helping us with the registration and ticket details. You can register here. (http://nethui.eventbrite.co.nz/#)

Make sure you get in quick so you don’t miss out. We’re very excited about this event and can’t wait to see you all on the night. Also feel free to share the love to Internet NZ for sponsoring this event.
