🤓 At first she got me with her witty banter about #parentingtheshitoutoflife and then, well....then she really starting pushing my buttons talking about #flexappeal I won’t even dare say I ‘cast’ Anna for this @oasisfashion event (November 2017), because truth is I sort of whispered it with a bit of hope 🙏🏼 and 🤞 Of course she accepted and arrived at the Oasis flagship to a packed room - because it’s not just me who thinks she’s wonderful. Anna asked me what she should talk about - this was 12 months ago - and although her book was just out, what Anna really wanted to get into was helping people work to a timetable that suits them. There is masses and masses and masses of eloquent, intelligent, head-nodding info about #flexappeal on @mother_pukka’s feed - anyone under a rock not following, go there now. In this particular clip, Anna is talking about how she made that decision to quit work after just saying ‘sorry’ to everyone; most of us can recognise that feeling, when in an attempt to do everything, you’re actually getting not a lot of it right. Now Anna is on a UK wide tour with @mcdonaldsuk offering amazing advice and insight on flexible working - if you get the chance to hear her speak, please go. You won’t be sorry.
