#11 Leaders with Babies – Tim Allen

Episode 11 – Tim Allen

Tim Allen Shared Parental Leave PWCIn the first episode of Series 2 of the Leaders With Babies Podcast Verena is joined by Tim Allen, a partner at PWC and a mentor on the Leaders Plus Fellowship.

Tim is a pioneer in taking shared parental leave (SPL) and was one of the very first partners at PWC to take extended time off following the birth of his first daughter, Stella.


There’s important discussion on the practicalities of taking SPL when in a leadership position, including how to ensure you don’t miss out when it comes to future appraisals and pay rises.

Tim shares his key learning points from taking SPL, the positive impact it has had on his approach to leadership, what he’ll do differently for future leave and why communication with your partner is key when it comes to managing expectations.

Plus, Tim explains how it’s our duty to strive for equality when it comes to childcare and parental leave.
