Join us for an outrageously funny star-studded afternoon of fringes, fake tan, and female empowerment with Claudia Winkleman & Yomi Adegoke, Pandora Sykes & Jess Phillips MP, and Prof. Christie Watson. Join us this July at the beautiful Chiswick House & Gardens for frank and fearless conversations with these four fierce and funny women as they discuss the little and large things of life. Together they will reflect on the lessons taught to us by modern life as we ask: what does it take to be a modern woman? How do we know if we’re doing it right? Alongside practical tools, workshops, and a marketplace offering a fresh perspective on how to live a happier, healthier, and more inspired life. Each ticket includes a copy of "Quite" by Claudia Winkleman.

We’ve clanged our pans for them, but do we really know the extent of what nurses do? From the nurses in the community, care-homes, military, schools and more? And how much courage it takes to care?
Bestselling author and nurse of over 20 years, Christie Watson, shares her insights into the strength of the human heart in this moving and inspirational conversation.
Modern life is full of choices. And the pressures facing 30-something women today - often generation rent, balancing motherhood and work (including all those childcare costs) can be eye-watering. You’re interested in the world and want to do your bit – but how do you engage in everyday activism without burning out? And if you’re inside politics, how do you move it? Is it possible to be one's 'best' and 'authentic' self – and do we even know what that looks like? What if we get it wrong? And what if we don’t know how to help those around us who are getting it wrong too?
Join journalist, author and one half of the phenomenon, The High Low, Pandora Sykes; and the Labour MP, activist and all-round epic human, Jess Phillips, as they explore the questions, anxieties and agendas that consume our modern lives.

Life Lessons has changed the way I’m going to do my events. I’ve been to so many talks here and they’re fantastic. I’m so grateful. I’d love to do more work with you
I had a wonderful time at Life Lessons – even better than I expected, and I was expecting a lot. All the visitors I spoke to told me they'd had a fantastic day.
Life Lessons is a great idea. It feels like there’s not enough of it. I would like to think that this is the start of a sea-change I guess. In that it’s something going forward that people realise needs to be part of our everyday thinking.
