We are really excited to announce that our very own Ciara Garvan will be interviewing Annie Auerbach, the author of “flex: Reinventing Work for a Smarter Happier Life” on Wednesday 3rd March at 10.30am.
Flex is a fascinating book which will inspire you to challenge the status quo to live and work in a smarter happier way.
The recent coronavirus outbreak has proven what Annie Auerbach has long championed: working 9-5 in an office doesn’t work for most us.
It’s time to change the rules.
We can be efficient and productive when we’re allowed the freedom of flexibility–to meet deadlines working during the hours and in the places we choose. Annie Auerbach understands work culture and the needs of employees. The world is changing for working women, but until the recent pandemic, companies turned a blind eye. Now, it’s time to make this change routine.
Auerbach reiterates the importance of leaving the office cubicle behind and explores the realities many women experience working from home and the changes to their daily lives, including the trickle-down effects, from emotional labor to balancing childcare and education with work.
What happens when women embrace the concept of flex? We become more creative, more strategic with our time and energy, and more engaged with our personal lives. As Auerbach makes clear, we reject “our toxic culture of presenteeism, time-pressure, and ultimately burnout. It helps us escape the army of octopus lady jugglers, crazed with the exhaustion of “having it all.” It allows us to live longer lives more sustainably. It gives us self-worth.”
There is no need to register for this event. Just follow us here on Instagram and join the Insta Live on Wednesday at 10.30am.
We are really looking forward to seeing you all there!
