WorkFest 2014

On Saturday, a brilliant bunch of MNers descended on central London for Mumsnet's annual WorkFest, sponsored by Barclays - a whole day dedicated to getting you the career that you want.

From returning to the workplace, to starting your own business; from confidence-building to can't-fail interview techniques - WorkFest was jam-packed with expert advice, fascinating panel discussions, and inspirational keynotes.

Our sincere thanks to our sparkling line-up of speakers - they made this an unmissable event; but most of all, to the Mumsnetters whose energy, enthusiasm and ambition made for an unforgettable day.

If you're curious about what WorkFest is all about - or want to re-live the day - do check out some of the day's gorgeous photos, and read this brilliant blog post by one of the fabulous MNers who came along.
