When it comes to Selfridges I always get a little bit excited, it’s like Toys ‘R’ Us only for adults. From the vast array of clothing, accessories, gadgets, amazing food and of course make up it is without doubt one of my favourite places to shop.
Being situated in the heart of Birmingham Selfridges is surrounded by not just shoppers browsing the city but also by the hustle and bustle of those commuting to and from work. That’s why they’re kicking off next week with a fortnightly series of events for workers to take part in. The majority of them are designed to fit around the lunch hour so you won’t be back late however you can also pop along after work in order to see what’s going on.
From Monday 18th May until Sunday 31st May in collaboration with a range of local businesses and food vendors there will be 30 minute activities starting from 12pm which include learning Spanish, yoga and salsa as well as fashion and beauty tips, all of which will be led by industry experts in bite sized tutorials. There are also specialist talks taking place to help you get your head around Linked In, as well as this there are CV workshops and talks from Nick Holzherr, Birmingham’s very own Apprentice star.
There are loads of activities to get involved with so if you can make it so why not check out the list of Work It Events where I’m sure you’ll find something to tickle your fancy. I’ll give you a heads up with the first week of events but be sure to check the link to find out is what happening throughout the whole campaign.
