  • How to achieve better work-life balance
    How to achieve better work-life balance Mira Rutter, Work-Life Balance Coach and Strategist Recorded: Oct 16 2018 60 mins
    In our hectic modern lives, we often get pulled from pillar to post, drown in detail, more is expected from us and we demand more of ourselves. As a result, we rarely get off the hamster wheel and pause to think about what it is we really want, and why.

    Spending time to reflect on what is truly important to us and what we really want in life gives us focus and direction on how to spend our time and energy. Having a plan of action and taking regular steps toward achieving what we want means we are far more likely to get there than if we were just wishing for it.

    In this webinar, Mira Rutter, a Work-Life Balance Coach and Strategist will share with you practical tips on what you can do to achieve more balance in your life by focusing on what’s important to you and freeing up time and energy for what truly matters to you.


    Key takeaways:

    - What is work-life balance to you and how to bring more balance into your life
    - The two essential pillars to leading a well-rounded and fulfilling life
    - Common productivity misconceptions
    - Strategies for freeing up time & energy for what’s important to you
    - How to structure your days & weeks for optimal results
  • Innovate Finance's Women in FinTech Webinar Series - Funding the Founders
    Innovate Finance's Women in FinTech Webinar Series - Funding the Founders Innovate Finance Recorded: Oct 16 2018 62 mins
    Even though VC investment into UK FinTech has grown exponentially in recent years, reaching $1.8 billion in 2017, women still only raise a minute percentage of this. A recent study by Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and Mass Challenger, a network of startup accelerators, found that when women applied for investment, they received less funding compared to the average male founder, but made double the revenue.

    Our panel of CEOs in leading FinTech firms and investors will look at how women in FinTech are raising funding. Who are the funders? What are they looking for and what needs to change? Do women need to rely less on traditional modes of finance or are more dynamic options available?

  • Foundational Habits to Support Your Wellbeing
    Foundational Habits to Support Your Wellbeing Harriet Waley-Cohen, Speaker and certified coach Recorded: Oct 12 2018 60 mins
    Just like a building needs good solid foundations to stay upright at all times, not just in the worst storms, so do us humans. Without solid foundations, we can find ourselves all too easily distressed, overwhelmed, unhappy, unhealthy and unable to show up as the most effective, impactful and confident versions of ourselves.

    Morning routines, spiritual practises, exercise, food planning, mindset rituals - all of these can make a big difference when they are implemented consistently. The difference to your physically and emotional wellbeing of having these habits in place can be dramatic, and in turn, impact on your career and whole life.

    Whether you've stopped doing key rituals over the summer that need to be added back in, you feel clueless about where to start to create a solid foundation for your emotional and physical wellbeing, or you'd love to get a few extra tips for things you could add in to help your wellbeing, this webinar is for you.

    You will learn:
    How to identify your foundational, non negotiable needs in all the key areas of life, and fit them into your life.
    The key categories that will need to be considered to make sure your foundations are solid and nothing vital has been left out.
    How to create your own unique foundational map for your wellbeing that you can come back to time and time again to keep you on track, and get you quickly back on track if needs be.

  • How to write a book when you don't have any time
    How to write a book when you don't have any time Hannah Adcock, Content strategist and author, contentedstrategy.com Recorded: Oct 3 2018 37 mins
    I don't know about you, but when I read articles about how you can write a book in two weeks if only you work a bit harder I want to scream; but don’t, obviously, because it might wake the baby. These articles nearly always seem to be written by smug young people with very little in the way of responsibility (and going to the gym and sampling artisan beer don’t count).

    I have managed to write a book – an ebook on content strategy for startups and small businesses – but it has taken me about two and a half years. Which is also the time it takes to have two children, work part time, exercise a dog, and move house.

    In this webinar I'll talk you through how you can write the book you’ve always dreamed about, even with your many responsibilities, if you just follow a few basic guidelines. I also encourage you to bin unhelpful concepts like multitasking, the superwoman (or superman) complex, and feeling guilty.
