Co-founder and CEO of Mumsnet, Justine Roberts is perfectly placed to speak to audiences on the issues faced today by women, as well as the challenges and experiences faced in her role cultivating one of the most recognisable online brands.

The idea for Mumsnet originated after somewhat of a troublesome holiday experience at a family-friendly resort in 1999 when Justine took her one-year old twins away. However, the less than family friendly experience left Justine wondering how she, and other Mums alike, could avoid falling into the same issues in the future.

A year later, Mumsnet was formed providing a online sanctuary for Mums to give, and share, advice on all manner of topics.

Since launching, Mumsnet has grown into a social network for parents, serving five million visits a month with users contributing to over 25,000 posts a day. Hosting over 200 local sites, with a comprehensive network of bloggers, Mumsnet regularly campaigns on key issues affecting families, driving national media coverage of individual issues faced by its community.

In May 2011 Mumsnet launched Gransnet, a website for the original baby boomer generation to discuss relationships, news, culture – and, not least, grandparenting.

Prior to founding Mumsnet, Justine was a football and cricket writer for both The Daily Telegraph and The Times, with a stint prior to that as an economist and strategist for SG Warburg.

Justine, and Mumsnet’s incredibly story, will make for a powerful addition to any event.
