All your questions, answered.
How does it work?
Roundtables are a 3-hour guided session led by Otegha – think part career clinic, part mentoring session, part group chat. They’re the ideal space to workshop your ideas and get a second (and third… and fourth) opinion on your next career move.
How many of us will there be?
Each session will comprise of eight women in total, with each member of the group having an allotted period to share their challenges and questions before we workshop solutions as a group. The way we see it, if two heads are better than one, eight heads must be pretty bloody great.
So… who’s doing the mentoring?
You are – our Roundtables are all about embracing the power of peer-to-peer mentoring. Sessions will be led by Otegha as part of a structured format of goals-focused troubleshooting and strategising.
Who are these workshops for?
Everyone. You don’t need to be working in the creative industries or self-employed to apply. Roundtables are all about encouraging women with different skill sets to connect and share resources. Each group will be carefully curated so you’re paired up with women relevant to your interests – all we ask is that you come prepared to listen, and share ideas.
Where and when?
Roundtable sessions are hosted on a monthly basis at Mortimer House in central London.
How much does it cost?
£120, payable in advance. Unfortunately we are not able to offer a student discount at this time.
What else do I get?
Besides a free download of our Dream CV Planner (usual price £10), after your session you’ll also get access to a private Roundtable Alumni Facebook group, where you can carry on conversations, ask questions, and share resources. All future Roundtable participants will also gain access to the Facebook group, so your network will continue to expand long after your own session.

“I highly recommend that all women sign up for the Women Who roundtable. Otegha is so knowledgable about how to approach career milestones and struggles. Her advice and tips on how to tackle tricky situations - as they happen to all of us - was so valuable. I also loved the intimacy of the roundtable. With only seven women round the table, I felt comfortable to share my story and to offer my own advice on their experiences.”
“I found it incredibly inspiring and the curation was top notch - I particularly enjoyed the format of the session and how Otegha put everyone at ease and made our group feel safe from the beginning. Thanks to her I felt most of us let go and opened up. Personally our conversation made me feel valued, supported, regenerated, inspired, uplifted and empowered. I was moved to see how involved everyone was in addressing each other’s problems. In a nutshell, it was probably one of the most beautiful moments of sisterhood I have ever experienced.”
“Thank you for organising and facilitating this empowering meeting. It was really nice to meet you and the smart, wise, courageous and beautiful women who shared their stories - at some points it almost felt like we could talk forever!”
“I really enjoyed the Roundtable. It was great to meet some interesting and inspiring women and have a space to share our experiences and struggles - and also to hear from Otegha and her experience. I would definitely recommend it to other people.”
“It was an absolute pleasure meeting you and the well selected, strong group of women on Saturday. It was a very powerful session and I wanted to thank you for it and your feedback on the day.”
“Coming together with likeminded women discussing career challenges felt extremely liberating. Thank you for being such a wonderful host and for all those practical tips.”
“Thank you for creating a relaxed and warm space to share our experiences and to be seen and held by you and the other brilliant women in the room. Talking openly helped us to gain clarity, to recognise the strengths in others and ourselves, and ultimately to take a positive step towards our collective self-worth.”
