Grab a seat - and the popcorn - for the launch of our Digital Retox #Talkshowtaxi

To celebrate the launch of our all-singing, all-dancing Digital Retox course, we kitted out a London black cab in full Digital Retox branding - and of course, leopard print - and got some seriously influential influencers and celebrities in the back seat. In our very own Digital Retox #Talkshowtaxi series we got the low-down from the likes of Big Fat Greek Mother, Honest Mum, Holly Tucker, Nick Ede (PR to the stars) and Andrea McLean (of Loose Women fame) on everything from who they would most like to share a back seat with to their top digital hack!

The interviews are in full on our Instagram TV and it promises to be the most entertaining cab drive of your life!


Reboot your digital skills and give your career confidence a boost

Digital Retox is designed to fast-track student’s understanding of the key digital technologies and skills crucial to the modern workplace. This includes how to develop your personal online brand so you can showcase your skills to the full and hustle for the roles - and pay - you deserve. You will also get the lowdown on - and start to use - new communication and organisation technologies such as Google Suite, Slack, Trello and Touchcast and be introduced to in-demand skills like coding and programming, social media and data-driven decision making.

To cement your learning, you will undergo weekly challenges to build new found digital skills, and crucially overall confidence. For mums joining us from a career break, this confidence building is cemented during the training in the form of our brilliant peer groups, where students are put in a group of 10 like minded women to learn from and learn with. And there’s lots of scope for interaction on our live weekly webinars and our dedicated Digital Retox Slack channels.

Digital Retox starts from £299 incl. VAT and training only takes 3-6 hours a week over 10-12 weeks, making it ideal to do alongside work or parenting commitments.

But don’t just take our word for it…

According to our January pilot students, 8 in 10 feel more digitally confident since taking part in Digital Retox, 80% say they’ve developed their digital skills set and 73% feel more confident overall. Here’s what some of them had to say...

Alex Chell (35) lives in East London with her two-year-old son. She works full time at a global tech company.

“Digital Retox has taught me way more than I expected and given me tangible skills and tools that are changing the way I, and my organisation, work.”

Victoria Wotherspoon lives in Switzerland with her two young daughters. She’s currently on a career break from teaching.

“Since completing the Digital Retox, I’ve become a lot more confident about using digital work tools such as Slack and Trello and about my own abilities to learn again and take on something new. It’s given me the confidence to say; ‘Yes, I can do that!’”

Denise lives in London with her husband and five-year-old twins. She recently returned to a part-time role after a five year career break

“Just getting to grips, quickly, with new technology is a real boost for someone who’s been out of the workplace for a while. My digital knowledge has now been given a complete overhaul and it’s really boosted my self-esteem.”

Kate lives near Cambridge with her husband and eight-year-old daughter. She runs her own social media agency, Saffron Social:

“Digital Retox has had a hugely positive impact on my digital knowledge and I’m applying everything I’m learning directly to my work. It’s been a total life changer for me."
