Hey girls, let’s talk

There’s no one way to deal with the ongoing challenges of achieving professional success, personal satisfaction and family happiness.

Women everywhere strive to develop a personal approach to find an appropriate balance. But opportunities to meet and learn from others is sadly lacking.

Female in Focus is your space to share with and listen to other women. And to help guide the discussion, you’ll be delving into the following areas:

How do we acknowledge our personal limits and align our work and family commitments in regard to them?

How can a woman manage her personal expectations and deal with stress?

How can we define responsibilities between our role as mothers and the challenges that we are facing?

How can we manage relations with bosses and negotiate professional responsibilities?

Is this forum for me?

Yes! The event is open to all women who want to focus on issues related to family/work/life balance. But let’s be clearer, the event is for you if:

After taking a break from work, you’re ready to come back and pursue your professional goals. You are planning your return and would like to learn how other women have done it;

You recently came back to work and are overwhelmed with managing demands of work and family. You are wondering whether there is a better way of combining these competing goals.

You are committed to achieving your professional goals but recently started to think about having kids and you want to know what it takes to make both things work.

Your moderator: Ainslie Young

Our first discussion is moderated by Ainslie Young, an inspiring mumpreneur who learned her way to balance the professional aspirations as a Digital Marketing Consultant, globe-trotting Copywriter and certified Life Coach with fulfilling her role as a mother.
