About this Event
Jessica Chivers – psychologist and author of ‘Mothers Work! How to Get a Grip on Guilt and Make a Smooth Return to Work’ – plus special guest, Annie Abelman, will answer your questions on how to make an impact when you return to work.
When Annie returned from maternity leave to her job of Head of Communications for Lloyds Bank Foundation England & Wales she was tasked with two mammoth projects…which she delivered! Whilst battling the self-doubt and imposter syndrome that every new parents feels after almost a year out of work, Annie was asked to launch a new organisational strategy while also leading a major brand refresh, with just seven months lead in time for to complete and unveil both. She had to double the size of her team, leading everything from the recruitment process, onboarding new staff and gearing everyone towards our two big deadlines.
She left in 2019 to complete a Masters, write her first novel and found Mentor Mums – a mentoring service that matches mums returning to work with another mum in their professional field who is a few steps ahead.
Annie also runs her own Freelance Communications Consultancy which supports clients doing good things for the world – most recently working with the family support charity Home-Start UK on their corporate partnership with John Lewis PLC.
