June Virtual Girl Geek Dinner

We hope you are well in these extraordinary and unprecedented times. As we begin to see the world return to the new ‘normal’ we are excited to announce the very first virtual Girl Geek Dinner. These online events are going to become part of our new normal and will run as well as our in-person events (once normality returns). We understand that not everyone can get to the in-person meetups so this will be another way to connect and learn from one another.

To keep with the spirit of Girl Geek Dinners we have partnered up with a number of industry experts and a culinary expert to provide you with a unique Girl Geek Experience.

Register for our June event today. It is all about personal branding – Topics include:

  • Top 12 tips for a better SEO life – Judith Lewis
  • Understanding your personal character traits to develop leadership & and people skills – Linda Gale
  • ’The Power of You’ – how to build a life of opportunity, impact and fulfilment through the power of being yourself – Hannah Power     

The first round of tickets are now available

Alongside the usual Girl Geek Dinner topic’s we will be providing you with your very own Girl Geek home dining experience. Upon signing up you will receive a bespoke recipe and shopping list to be able to cook your very own girl geek dinner to enjoy whilst you join our online event.

We will include a vegetarian and standard recipe for you to make something amazing with us. And you can let us know how you are getting on via our social channels and share your creations using the hashtag #virtualggd – we love seeing what you create!

We look forward to seeing you all on Zoom with your culinary masterpieces!

Sci Fi London Girl Geek Dinner

SCI-FI-LONDON and London Girl Geek Dinners presents an evening of geek girls in film…

If you do a google search for ‘women in film BAFTA 2011’ two of the first four hits are about red carpet fashion. Looking though the 2011 BAFTA nominations it seems like women are mostly only taken seriously in film if they are actors or doing hair, make-up and costumes. Leilani Holmes and Anna Higgs have both had successful careers in a male-dominated field and are joining SCI-FI-LONDON and the London Girl Geek Dinners to present about how they make use of new media, crowd sourcing content and engage with collaborative filmmaking forums to challenge the glass ceiling.

Leilani Holmes is short film maker, screen writer and actor who co-runs a collaborative filmmaking group www.ottfilms.co.uk/forum and blogs for the London Screenwriters Festival.

Anna Higgs is a producer with a background in the world of BAFTA-award winning interactive ‘edutainment’ and has been involved the production of a wide range of games, as well as managing digital media projects for a diverse range of clients including Sony, Sainsbury’s, BskyB, Telewest and the BBC.  In 2006 Anna completed her MA in Producing at the NFTS, and founded Quark Films with producer Gavin Humphries.

Quark is a company working across drama, documentary and animation for theatrical, TV and digital platforms with credits as diverse as feature doc THE PEOPLE VS. GEORGE LUCAS, DVD tour film THE MIGHTY BOOSH: FUTURE SAILORS TOUR and BOY CHEERLEADERS for BBC Wonderland and music videos for the Arctic Monkeys.  Anna was recently selected as a finalist for the British Council’s Young Screen Entrepreneur of the Year award 2010 and is a NESTA Fellow on the prestigious Clore Cultural Leadership programme 2010/11.

The wine we will be quaffing are from the Dinastia Vivanco winery and fabulous wine museum in Rioja (Spain).  The white wine  (Vivanco Blanco) is a blend of Viura and Malvasia from 2009.  If this sounds fabulous and you’d like to know more, check www.dinastiavivanco.com and become a fan of the Dinastia Vivanco wine Facebook page to show you appreciate them providing the wine.  We’ll also be asking volunteers to just chat about or give their opinoons on wine in general on the night as well so please do volunteer 30sec of your time if you can

London Girl Geek Dinner 4 Year Anniversary Event Announcement!


We have just finalised all the details for this year’s anniversary Girl Geek Dinner.  Since we know that there will be way more demand for this event than we could possibly cater for we are also going to live stream the event.

The tickets will be released in two batches.  The first batch will be released on the 08/17/2009 at 1:30pm so that it’s across lunchtime rather than meeting times! The second batch are at an after work time of 8:30pm on 08/18/2009.  Remember to add those times to the diary.

We will open up a small reserves list but we need to know drop outs asap as we can’t have more than 80 people for fire & safety reasons and Channel 4 require a list of attendees in advance of the event for name badges and to provide to security.

Gone with the Wind movie full

Many thanks
