We round up what to see at London's top women in tech conference
On 25-26th June 2019, Women of Silicon Roundabout returns for its fourth year. Launched in October 2015 with just 300 delegates, the event now has 6,000+ attendees, 150+ sessions and 300+ speakers from brands like Google, eBay and Adobe. As the event's content grows, so does the volume of features and activities. From smoothie bars to face-to-face legal advice, here's what to find alongside this year's talks and sessions.
ICC Capital Hall, N10
After its success in previous events, the Women of Silicon Roundabout CV Clinic is back. Open from 7.45 each day, experts will be available to help tweak and craft your CV, no matter what level in your career.

A brand new feature this year, the Wellness Zone is a space to unwind amongst all the day's mental stimulation. Complete with trees, grass and seating areas. Brands will be available with goodies, and you can get a Mobile Massage at B2 for a quick zen-fix.
ICC Capital Hall, next to Theatre 2
In a room full of inquisitive minds, 10 minutes for an after session Q&A isn't always enough. That's why we're introducing the Speaker's Corner, a location for speakers to continue the conversation with attendees. It provides a safe-space to ask questions one-on-one with speakers and an opportunity to spark discussions with other guests.
ICC Capital Hall, LA3- LA8
Legal practitioners will be on hand to advise on any legal issues you may be facing. Whether it's a commercial, legal, personal or business concern, six practitioners will be available from ProMediate, Brown Rudnick LLP, Wedlake Bell LLP, Sponsors for Educational Opportunity, Freeaths and Debevoise & Plimpton LLP.

As well as offering career-boosting sessions and industry insight, Women of Silicon Roundabout is a great opportunity to connect with like-minded people. There will be a dedicated networking zone all day in the middle of the exhibition hall, as well as a first day post-event networking drinks with complimentary beer, wine and soft drinks.
Health Scans and VR Indoor Cycling
Women of Silicon Roundabout Bronze sponsor, Energy Lab, are a health and wellbeing agency who focus on employee wellbeing in large corporate environments. At this year's event, they will be offering two activities that combine tech and wellbeing:
- Their Zwift bikes connect indoor bike trainers with VR, simulating a real life ride. With two bikes on site, there will be a competition for whoever can ride the furthest in 30 seconds. The winner over the two days will receive the competition set-up at their company, second place will receive a health scan for up to 80 employees and they have a range of other smaller prizes such as free consultations.
- They'll also be offering free health scans on-site, which are essentially a range of short physical tests that then generate a report for the user on basic health condition.
Whether you need assistance or want to book for 2019, Maddox staff will be on hand at the info point to help with your queries.
