Shattering the myth of work-life balance

This 90-minute workshop is perfect for anyone feeling overwhelmed, confused or wanting to achieve better work-life balance.

When you think about work-life balance what does it mean to you? We are often so focused on how to achieve it that we don’t stop to think about what it even means. Does one-size fit everyone at every stage in their lives? This workshop explores the concept of work-life balance, why it may not be working for you and how you can take back control over your life and decision making. This is a practical workshop where we will focus on shattering the myth, creating healthy balance frameworks and shifting our mindset.


To explore what work-life balance means to each of us and how it’s not a one size fits all. To create a shift in mindset to a more healthy personalised concept of work-life balance and practical tips for how to prioritize and make time for what is important.


Female professionals finding it challenging to balance home and work, wanting to feel more in control over their time and lives. Women trying to balance family responsibilities and work who are tired of feeling like they have to choose one or the other.
