Design your life: An architect’s guide to achieving a work/life balance
Webinar 28 Apr 2022 12:00 to 28 Apr 2022 13:00
Date: Thursday 28 April 2022 Time: 12pm - 1pm
Ten years ago, Clare Nash was struggling with a common problem: how to be an architect and still have a life. With no job, no savings and no clients in the midst of a recession, Clare set up her own practice with little more than a few postcards in local shop windows and a very simple website. Determined to better combine her life and family with professional work, she created an innovative practice that is flexible and forward-looking, based around remote working and the possibilities offered by improving technology.
Bursting with tips, ideas and how-to’s on all aspects of designing a working life that suits you and your business, this webinar explains in clear and accessible language how to avoid the common pitfalls of long hours and low pay. It explores how to juggle work with family commitments, how to set your own career path and design priorities, and how to instil a flexible working culture within a busy lifestyle.
Two key aspects dramatically changed Clare’s practice for the better: niching and creating a happy remote working team. She will explain how these enabled her to achieve higher fees, work on fulfilling projects and enjoy a good work/life balance.
