Magnus Llewellin Editor, The Times, Scotland
almost 30 years at the helm of the national press, Magnus has led The Times in successfully
navigating changes huge changes in journalism and the shift of media into the
digital age. Now the focus is on flexibility in the workplace and Magnus is a
believer that when we invest in people and believe in flexible working, the business
thrives, as does the economy.
“I’m proud to be speaking at FlexibleWorkFest and sharing how flexible working helps us shape the new media landscape. With a previous reputation of long hours within our sector, we have had that lightbulb moment and now embrace work life balance as a real driver of output”.
Shelley Kerr Head Coach, Scotland Woman's National Football Team
In leading “Our Girls” in their recent World Cup campaign, Shelley Kerr is just as motivational on the pitch as she is off. The inspiration she provides young women coming through in Football runs parallel with being an inspirational advocate of flexibility. She is a prime example of how a career can go from strength to strength after becoming a parent.
“Flexible working isn’t just about mothers, it’s about inclusivity and making sure we aren’t letting hard-working, capable employees slip away. I can’t wait for FlexibleWorkFest to hear other real-life success stories of work-life balance”
