Gathering: Parenthood and Work - are they a good mix?

Jan 30, 2017 – 7:00 pm

“Parenthood and Work – are they a good mix? Everything you ever wanted to ask about Parenthood but were afraid to ask”

The truth is we all do parenthood and work in different ways - but until you have done it, and even in the midst of it, there are endless questions to ask.

Our panel of three mums and a dad are all juggling parenthood and work, from new babies to teenagers.  They will share their experiences of what makes it work and what doesn't, and will answer your difficult questions. How do you cope with returning from maternity leave? What's the best approach - walk away or stay involved? What about flexible working - how do you negotiate that? Once back how do you manage to juggle the two? Can you be good at both? Can you push your career forward and have a family at the same time?

The panel will be chaired by Claire Hilton, Marketing Director of Barclays, and she will be joined by:

Jo Coombs – CEO, Ogilvy One

Caroline Marshall – Founder of Caroline Marshall & Partners

Simon Peck – Managing Director, Engine

Nikki Wilkinson – Digital Strategy Director, St Luke’s and previous winner of the FLA.

Date: Monday 30th January

Timings: 6.15 for drinks with kick off at 6.45. Over by 8pm.

Venue: Havas Media, 60 St Martin’s Lane, London WC2 N 4JS
