Babes, coffee and going back to work

The first Mum & Career Workshop was an incredible success and we’ll be hosting another one soon. Thanks to For Sanity’s Sake who we teamed up with it was fully booked within 3 days! A big thank you also to the Teddington Arms for hosting us and to everyone who came along and openly shared their stories, worries and advice.

There were sixteen Mums and their babies/toddlers at the coffee morning, ‘Going back to work’, in the Teddington Arms on Wednesday. The Mums said it was incredibly reassuring to hear from other women in the same situation, especially to hear how many of them are faced with the same issues: Going back to your old job? Trying to make it flexible? Resigning? And then what? Totally opting out of work-life seems very scary. Working full-time seems like a tall order, especially in a highly competitive environment. Perhaps there is no easy answer.

I gave a clear structure and advice on how to get through the back to work phase with more ease and confidence. The group shared tips with each other on how they find confidence and time to start creating a new work-life that includes children. Apparently it’s all about planning and being organised…which makes sense!

For most mums it was thought provoking, brought clarity and new insights and just got the brain juices flowing again.
