Is this your first blogging conference?

No. It is my fourth. It is my first conference which I am helping at though.


Are you attending both days?

I am.


What are you most looking forward to at BritMums Live 2015?

The last two years at Britmums Live involved me being jealous and envious of the room moderators. This year I am in that role myself which I am really excited about.
I also really look forward to the atmosphere, and seeing a room full of people all passionate about the same thing. 
Also, Carol Smillie. And the train journey...two words: FREE COFFEE.

What are you wearing? 

I'm not completely decided yet but it will involve a skirt and/or dress.

What do you hope to gain from BritMums Live 2015?

I think the same as every year. Confidence, meeting new people, and inspiration.


Do you have any tips to pass on to others who may not have been before?

The wine at the BIBs party and ceremony is really lovely....however...make sure you keep count of how many you have and try not to have too many.
And I still stand by my tips from last year:
Plan your sessions in advance, make a list of which ones you want to go to. If you feel shy put a call out on Twitter and ask if anyone else is going to those sessions to see if you can sit with them or walk to the room with them.
Make sure you take your phone charger incase you get lost in London with no battery.
Get to the main room in time for the keynotes on the Friday so you can get a seat at a table.
Don't be afraid to take time out if you need to.
