It’s been a while since my last blog post, but I’m back with a gooden! I recently worked at “The Self Made Summit”, an event hosted by Cosmopolitan Magazine which is aimed at anyone who is looking to start their own business or is in need of a career shake up. The event took place at County Hall in London on the 14th and 15th of April with around 400 guests attending.

After such a massive success last year, Cosmopolitan wanted to make it bigger and better than before… and that they did! A weekend ticket cost around £170, included in the price was breakfast on arrival, snacks throughout the day and cocktails in the afternoon. Finished off with a goodie bag full of amazing products worth over £100!!!

Cosmopolitan state “it’s this spring’s most important gathering of leading business brains and inspirational founders”. The weekend was jam packed with talks and workshops from some pretty successful business men and women. The line-up included familiar faces such as Emma Willis, Katie Piper, Jamie Laing, Alice Liveing.

The topics completely varied. They ranged from “How to earn a packet whilst travelling” to “The do’s and don’ts of creating a new unique brand”. There was something for everyone, no matter what your life plan may be.

During the intervals, guests were able to chill out in the restaurant, enjoy a glass of fizz or a bite to eat and also check out the rooms of activations. This is where we come in! The Gypsy Shrine had a big presence throughout the weekend, we had our own set up, glittering everyone and ANYONE who wanted to add touch of sparkle to their day. Alongside us, were brands such as Eylure, Wella, Jade Angel and Givenchy also giving complimentary services. (Needless to say we took full advantage of this when the talks/workshops were in full swing).

This was such an exciting, inspiring event and I was so lucky to be able to be part of it. I’m hoping that next year I will be able to attend as a guest, not an employee! I would definitely recommend this to anyone who needs some sense of direction and motivation whilst working hard to make it in the big world. Make it happen!

Thanks for reading!
