Insight into the #back2businessship2022 Returners Programme written & created by 2 of the delegates; Maria Shlebova and Annabel (Gunnell) Jardine – DAY 1

Ahead of International Women’s Day, 32 communications, PR, media and marketing professionals started the six-day reboot and upskilling programme for women returners #Back2Businessship. The annual programme delivered by f1 recruitment ltd and partners explores industry, culture and technology changes with a range of expert speakers and collaborative workshops. It offers space and time to work with women in similar circumstances, to see how we’ve changed, work out what’s important to us and how we want to take our careers forward. The aim, ultimately, is for each of us to gain greater confidence and sharpen our tools for the return to work journey.

After a warm welcome from Simon Whitehead, CEO of venue hosts HK Strategies UK and Amanda Fone, Founder and CEO of f1 Recruitment Ltd, Liz Nottingham FIPA ? , Chair of Back2Businessship led the group through an entertaining session to explore our personality preferences c/o the Myers Briggs Personality Type Indicator. How do we make decisions? Where do we draw our energy from? By discussing questions like these, we gained valuable insights ourselves and how people with other perspectives see the world. Liz then helped us apply this learning to workplace scenarios. Whether we were ISTJs or ENTJs or landed somewhere in between, we all appreciated the opportunity to get to know each other and form the foundations of a superb team for getting back to business in 2022.

With @tanya-bright , f1’s Content, PR & Communications Consultant rounding out the day with a whistle-stop tour through developments in social media land, most of us will have dreamt of reels, hash-tags and boosted posts. Thank you to everyone involved today and here’s to day two!
