Posted by AnywhereWorking on Saturday 6th of July 2013 | 0 Comment(s)

Join us in Manchester on Thursday 11 July for free daytime and evening events with talks, workshops and plenty of drinks! Get your free tickets here.

The events are all about how flexible working can kickstart the UK economy and we'd love for you to come and join the debate.

At 9am we will be at Tech Hub for free breakfast & coffee, intros from the Anywhere Working team and a range of short presentations from a number of leading business experts.

Speakers include:

  • Anna Fletcher, employment lawyer and board member for CIPD, on ‘Legal consideration of flexible working’
  • Sharon Dale, consultant at Think Productive, on ‘How to be a productivity ninja’
  • Phil Jones, MD of Brother, on ‘Toolkit of a mobile worker’
  • After the breakfast briefing, why not stay around for the day and work flexibly from the Tech Hub space. There will be workshops as well as lunch too.

    In the evening head on down to Blackdog Ballroom, 11-13 New Wakefield Street, at 6pm for an Ignite style meet-up and drinks, courtesy of Anywhere Working.

    Tickets are available for both the daytime and evening events and are free – simply sign up and get your free tickets here.
