What is the biggest piece of learning or the best advice you’d like to share when it comes to combining a senior leadership career with raising young children?


Set your boundaries especially with your time, stick to it and tell everyone what they are. As well as helping yourself and your own energy levels, you’ll be role modelling to others and setting off a positive trend that could transform the workplace!
