I spent last week in Frankfurt on a leadership training course. It was interesting to meet new colleagues - pictured here from Spain, Germany and Poland. I learned new things and was given constructive and helpful feedback about my performance during the sessions. I have lots to think about now that I am back at work.

I watched Dr Who last week and was struck how clever they were to flip stereotypes. The Doctor explained the beauty of quantum physics in a very eloquent manner while a man was giving birth with men birth partners. Enjoyable episode and great script writing! Did you watch it?
This is a picture of my daughter (I am the one at the front!) who left home last week to study Biochemistry at university. Whilst I am sad that she has us (temporarily, I hope), I am delighted that she is having this opportunity. I am also mindful that she is the third generation of women in my family to study a STEM subject - my mother was a pharmacist, I studied engineering and my daughter studies Biochemistry. Proud mother!
Our partner Superdrug invited me to their Christmas launch for press, it was a fantastic event with great networking and I was lucky to meet lots of influential bloggers who loved Modern Muse. Here I am with Bee.
I was delighted to support Modern Muse at MK Innovates - an event all about STEM in Milton Keynes. Over 20 schools attended throughout the day so we had lots of opportunities to talk to local school children about Modern Muse. Here is a picture of us at the start of the day!
Last week was an interesting week for women in science -Canadian Donna Stickland won a Nobel prize in Physics the day after an Italian scientist at CERN claimed that men are being over looked in science. I say, the proof is in the work and recognition of it. Well done, Donna - the first woman in 55 years to be recognised this way. 403 ForbiddenWWW.BBC.CO.UK
