Event description

Description

The Red Bull Can Do Sessions are a series of talks designed to help you get more out of working life.

Having control of when and where we work can make us more productive — after all, it’s not about how many hours you work in a day, but how well you use that time. Whether we want to prioritise family life or simply have more time for personal interests, more and more of us are struggling to achieve a happy work-life balance when constrained by the rigid and outdated nine-to-five structure that has dominated workplaces for so long. But how do we approach the subject of flexible working with employers, and once we’ve got it how do we ensure we stay on top of it all? On 13th September, Red Bull and YCN will be exploring why flexible working is so important — not just to parents, but to everyone — and to share how, as companies and individuals, can make it work.

Our Speakers:

Anna Whitehouse
A journalist, editor and mother in search of pukka things for her kid, Anna Whitehouse is the voice of those people that happen to be parents. Looking for a platform on which to share parenthood trials and tribulations, her blog Mother Pukka was born. Since then, Anna has launched her FlexAppeal campaign to get people across the country talking about the importance of flexible working.

Celia Donne
Celia is Global Operations Director at Regus, which provides coworking spaces and virtual offices around the world. When Celia began working there 18+ years ago, it was a relatively small company of 100 centres. It has since grown to nearly 3000 centres and is the world’s largest provider of flexible working space. As well as talking about how Regus facilitates flexible working for employers worldwide, Celia will be sharing her own insights and experiences of how this approach to working has been successfully implemented within the global company.

Rachel Mostyn
Rachel is head of storytelling at Digital Mums, which trains and supports mums looking to achieve the right work/life balance while building flexible careers in the digital and social media spheres. Their #WorkThatWorks movement campaigns for flexible working to be seen as the norm for everyone and not just the reserve of a ‘lucky’ few, and are working with the government to Clean Up The F Word.

Join us at our headquaters for this event put on with the help of our freinds You Can Now.
