Next month sees the launch of the first ever Work and Family Show at London’s ExCel, created with the aim of offering support and advice to families, and helping them to achieve that all-important work-life balance we all strive for.
We personally know all too well the struggles of trying to balance the requirements of work together with the demands of family life. Having undertaken a huge learning curve of our own as we endeavoured to create our own businesses around our family, we feel that we would have benefitted greatly from the Work and Family Show had it been available.
With a range of speakers who have ‘been there’ and ‘done that’, and experts offering tips and tricks, the resulting support aims to help, inspire and advise those who are tentatively starting the same journey.
Organised by Clarion Events and working in conjunction with My Family Care, it is set beside the hugely successful Baby Show and is expected to attract over 10,000 visitors.
Oliver Black, Director of My Family Care says: “Over 2.2 million are not working in order to look after their family. More than 60% of these are looking to return to work but do not know how to and don’t appreciate the number of family friendly businesses that are out there. This is exactly who this show is for – helping talented parents find businesses and services who see the efficacy of installing family friendly working practices.”
The Work & Family Show will include the following dedicated areas:
- Recruitment & Employers – Work Opportunities (sponsored by workingmums.co.uk)
- Career Advice & Personal Development – Education & Advice
- Image, Style & Media Resources – Personal Branding & Development
- Family Services, Enablers & Networking – Support Systems
- Franchise, Self-Employment & Start Up Business – Going it Alone
Opening times for the Work and Family Show are:
Friday 21st February: 9am – 5pm
Saturday 22nd February: 10am – 5pm
Tickets are available from www.theworkandfamilyshow.co.uk from just £12, and people coming to the neighbouring Baby Show will have free entrance, but we have three pairs of tickets to give away worth £18 each.
