Sandwich Sessions | Meet Jessica Chivers, Author of Mothers Work

In partnership with The Busworks, creative, urban and flexible offices and studios.


Jessica’s a dab hand at helping both freelancing entrepreneurial spirits and wage-slaves with children get on with gratifying work whilst keeping things smooth at home. She’s the author of Mothers Work!: How to Get a Grip on Guilt and Make a Smooth Return to Work (Hay House, 2011) and most recently, founder of The Talent Keeper Specialists ( She’s worked for herself for nine years (also see and is married to a freelancer who she regularly scratches her head with as they ponder what it would take for organisations to cotton onto ‘freelance-style’ employees.

You can ask her about what she means by that at the sandwich session she’s hosting on Wednesday 23rd October at Busworks. The theme is combining work with children and Jessica will run a solutions-focused session which gets into the nitty-gritty of how each of us can and do make it work (or not) as well as sharing her own experiences and ideas from her book. If you’re a parent, especially to little ones, you’ll be delighted you came.


Sandwich Sessions from KindredHQ:

By popular demand, we've introduced a brand new lunchtime event for KindredHQ members. Our new Sandwich sessions are an opportunity for members to learn something completely new, for free - in an hour, over lunch.

The idea is simple. You bring your own lunch, and settle in for an hour of inspiration and shared experience. You might be learning how to manage your Wordpress blog, or set up your email marketing campaign, run Google analytics or develop your business model. 

Hey, you can even offer to run a session too!

    Really sorry. Thought I would have to arrive a little late but have had to completely change plans, so I won't be able to make it after all. I was really looking forward to it. I'm new, so excuse the question but will Jessica be doing any more of these? I'd very much like to attend another

      That's a shame, Amanda. We're doing more Sandwich Sessions but don't plan on having Jessica back (for a while, at least) so check out her website at

    A really useful discussion led by Jessica, who had lots of helpful suggestions and insightful advice. Could have carried on for another hour at least!
