Come and meet us at The Work and Family Show

We’re very excited. In less than a month, we’ll be attending the first ever Work and Family Show at London’s ExCeL. It promises to be packed with brilliant people and businesses offering advice and support to ambitious parents – just like you. And we’d love to meet you there.

The Work and Family Show is sponsored by The Guardian, Sky and Stella & Dot and takes place on 21 and 22 February. The idea is to provide you with everything you need to create the ideal balance between your career ambitions and your family – whether you want to work flexibly, go freelance or start your own business.

Meet lots of great exhibitors

There’s an impressive list of businesses and people who specialise in everything related to being a working parent exhibiting at the show. From career advisers, employment experts and image consultants, to franchise and self-employment gurus, and childcare and family service organisations, the event will be bursting with knowledge, inspiration and support.


A calendar of helpful workshops

You can also hear from leading experts and role models in a series of seminars and workshops organised in the show’s theatres and main stage over the two days:

  • Find out who you are in the Personal Theatre – learn how to gain confidence, understand your style, adapt your image and build your personal profile to secure your ideal work position.
  • Discover how you do it in the Practical Theatre – find out how and what you need to do to find your ideal work, freelance or business opportunity.
  • Visit the main debate stage – hear from panels of experts on their success stories and from inspirational working mums. Listen to debates on key topics hitting the headlines.
  • Join Business Delegate Sessions – participate in dedicated theatre sessions targeted at HR personnel, managers, CEOs and MDs.

Get diagnosed at the Career Surgery

Need some career advice? Visit the Career Surgery and meet a panel of experts offering personalised advice that is tailored to your situation.

Whether you’re looking for direction on where you want to be, need practical advice on interviews, communications, or financial and legal matters, or just want to discuss your fears and aspirations, you’ll find the support and guidance you need.

Come and say hello to us!

And most excitingly of all (well to us, anyway) is that we’ll be there! We’re handily located on stand A11 – just opposite the Career Surgery. Our founders Kary and Hannah will be there, plus we’ve arranged for some of our knowledgeable and friendly experts to join us and answer your questions.

So if you’d like face-to-face advice and inspiration on anything related to working flexibly, going freelance or starting a business as an ambitious mum, or even if you just want to see what we look like in the flesh, come and say hello.

Hear Hannah speak about social media

Hannah will also be appearing on the Tech Tune-Up panel in the Practical Theatre on both Friday and Saturday. She’ll talk about social media, and how you can use it to promote yourself, freelance work or business for free with the right knowhow – and discuss the single biggest mistake people make on social media.
