The Voices In The Shadow Festival
Full day Event & After-Party
27TH OF OCTOBER 2022

We are so excited to announce that you can now pre-order The Voices In The Shadow volume 2 book, and registration for The Festival is now open!

After the success of volume 1, we decided to carry on with volume 2 and launch our first festival. The Festival will focus on giving you the keys to growing your success in your tech career or as an entrepreneur.

Throughout the day, you will get plenty to learn new strategies, unleash new opportunities, and network with our sponsors, our speakers and other delegates. Our festival is open to all levels, genders and ethnicities but our stage is led by Black female excellence.

We have decided to give away 50 free tickets to young Black female students so you can all experience this great day of learning and networking with us! Fill out the form here.

We are capping this Festival to provide an intimate setting for you to connect with attendees, our sponsors and the speakers. Please don’t wait too long to secure your ticket.

  • Venue: Merchant Taylors in London, located near Bank tube station
  • We offer flexible payments such as Klarna and pay in instalments if necessary.
  • Let your company support you as this is a business event. 

Important: We are not planning on offering any remote attendee options. This is designed for an in-person exchange after three years of disruption, and we’re focusing on the attendee experience.

We would love to thank our sponsors for supporting our project: Accenture, Google, HSBC, Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, Warner Bros Discovery, WorkHuman, BYP and Solaris.

We look forward to seeing you on the 27th of October!
