Are you interested in debating hot topics in the world of work?

With my friend and coaching colleague Nicola Pitt, I organise high-profile debates in partnership with influential organisations.

This is a fantastic chance to hear from leaders in their field, and to have your say.

Flexible Working Debate

On 15th May 2019, Nicola Pitt and I organised a prestigious panel debate on the subject of flexible working. 


This was kindly hosted by HSBC at their global Headquarters in Canary Wharf, on behalf of HSBC Flex, the bank's flexible working employee network.


Over 100 people listened to leaders in their field debate this important topic, and £1000 was raised for the charity The Young Women's Trust.
