Employers worldwide are currently devising the new working from home models. Do you know what they are? Do you know how you can get involved in creating this new working style?

'At the Table' is a networking and career group for women, featuring an ongoing series of regular events to exchange views and ideas in an open and welcoming environment. Each get-together highlights a professional topic for discussion, and our guest speakers share their insights from their area of expertise to ensure that the session adds value and that there are meaningful takeaways.
