Supporting Working Parents
This session is a very practical workshop, anchored both in the latest scientific research and a deeply compassionate perspective. We will quickly set the scene by exploring the challenges of being a working parent in 2022 and give all participants the opportunity to identify all their struggles and the areas that require some change.

We will then move straight to a series of easy and practical tips and tools to help parents consistently bring their best self at work and be the best parent at home. We will focus on:

How to create a virtual barrier between work and home and learn to unplug from work when need be (and vice versa)
how to feel like an amazing parent and best support your family
how to communicate both at work and at home to support to balance, responsibilities, priorities and personal choices
how to keep your cool under pressure when time and personal resources seem to be running out

We are not talking about time management anymore but about focus management. I will share with humility, humor and compassion, stories and illustrations for each tool so that they
resonate with all participants.
You will leave the workshop with a different perspective on being a working parent, one more positive, exciting and empowering and most importantly with a set of tools that will support you on this amazing journey.

Bodé Aboderin | Speaker Biography

Bodé (AKA Papa B) is a motivational speaker, writer, businessman, and stay-at-home dad on a mission to communicate his rapidly changing beliefs on fatherhood and masculinity in real-time following his recent conversion from climbing the corporate ladder to running a household and family business.

Having excelled in his career as a client relationship manager while becoming a father of three, Papa B is living proof that black fatherhood is not only compatible with ambition but can also inspire, nourish, and amplify it. By dispelling the negative stereotypes associated with being a black dad in Britain, he utilizes his natural flair for motivational speech to share the joyful and transformative journey of starting a family, without avoiding the inherent challenges and lessons to be learned. Recently, Bode was also honored as the only male speaker at Pregnant Then Screwed, a festival celebrating mothers with careers.

In addition to managing school schedules, feeding the family, and staying on top of a mountain of laundry, Bodé, originally from Nigeria, now runs a growing media business with his wife, Candice Brathwaite, supporting and championing her plans for world domination. Through the content he shares on social media, speaking engagements, and his writing, Bodé is eager to share the extraordinary and enlightening impact this transformation has had on his fundamental beliefs and values.
