"Your summit last year in lockdown literally changed my life. I haven't dieted since and I wear shorts and dresses without the leggings in the summer. No more sweltering! I loved it!"

How do I take part in the event?

The event is a 'virtual summit' so you can take part from the comfort of your home (or out and about!) It's a mixture of pre-recorded sessions that we make available each day and some live sessions on zoom. All the event’s content will be e-mailed straight to you at 10am (BST) for the 5 days.

2. How many sessions are there?

There are 3 sessions each day so 15 sessions overall. There will also be some live 'community calls' over on the Facebook group.

3. How long is each session?

Each session is usually between 50-70 minutes. A few of the live sessions on Zoom ma go up to 90 minutes.

What accessibility steps have you taken?

This is really important to us but is a work-in-progress. Please head to the full FAQs page for our accessibility information.

4. Is it really free?

Yes it's totally free to attend / watch all the sessions but you'll only get access to the videos for 24 hours from 10am BST each day.

So if you want more time with the video there are EXTENDED VIEWING packages you can purchase starting at £15.

5. I don’t live in the UK. Is this for me too?

The event can be viewed from wherever you are in the world and all the talks are in English with closed captions available. Depending on what time zone you're in, your daily event email with links might arrive while you're sleeping so we advise to set a reminder for each day between May 6-10th.

6. If I’m in a different time zone / work full time, part time, or weird hours - will I miss everything?

No hopefully not, each set of talks will be released for 24 hours meaning that you can watch them at a time that’s convenient for you.
