Back to work after / cancer
This was my very first event and one that was very close to my heart, having just beat breast cancer myself. My speakers didn’t disappoint; Helen Calcraft (Founding Partner of Lucky Generals), Gav Thompson (Chief Customer Officer, Boden), and Nicola Way (Brand Director of Harper Collins Children’s Books) were inspirational. Talking emotionally and openly about how their very different experiences with cancer shaped who they are, what they do and how they work.
All ticket sales were donated to Macmillian. A huge thank you to our sponsors, VCCP.
In addition, CBC trained Life-coach, Joan O’Connor was on hand after the event for informal questions about how to cope when you go back to work after a life-changing event. While Head of Talent at VCCP, Nicola Longhurst provided answers to any HR queries about coping with work and illness.
