This week Verena chats to the journalist, author, social media influencer and flexible working campaigner Anna Whitehouse - otherwise known as “Mother Pukka.” 

Using #flexappeal, Anna has been a pioneer in calling for flexible working for ALL and her mission is to help businesses breakdown the fear around flexible working.

Anna shares how the #flexappeal campaign got started, plus some brilliant, real-life, flexible working examples from businesses such as BP, HSBC and Deloitte. Plus there is plenty of practical advice on getting flexible working requests approved.

There's also powerful and open discussion on miscarriage, setting boundaries and avoiding burnout, as well as the realities of working closely with your partner
