Working Differently

This is a new one for us and we’re REALLY excited about it!

  • Hear from businesses with “non-standard” working practices

  • Network with like-minded people from the Leeds business community

  • Pick up some tips and tricks about how to make these practices work best for you and your staff

We’re going to be interviewing representatives from different businesses who setup their company to work in a non-conformist environment. Businesses whose staff only work 4-day weeks (like us at LightStart, hello!), those who have unlimited holidays, irregular shift patterns or NO shift patterns (us again!), unlimited ‘work from home’ days, unusual office setups…whatever it is, it won’t be the usual 9-5. We’ll hear from the founders and staff of these businesses about the pros and cons of these ‘perks’, HOW it works in reality and how it affects staff morale and productivity.

Who is this event for?

Really this event is suited to anyone who has an interest in modern working practices. It will be particularly interesting for those involved with wellbeing in the workplace, HR, or those who are thinking of starting a new company or who are wanting to change to ‘work differently’.

For those of you who are accustomed to LightStart events you’ll know that we’ll have alcohol, soft drinks and nibbles available for the masses. There will also be heaps of time pre and post discussions to network in an informal setting with other businesspeople in the Leeds area. We’ll get an afterparty sorted too!

Our speakers include:

The short presentations from the speakers will be followed by a Town Hall-style discussion, with audience participation and Q&As. Tickets are FREE so what are you waiting for? Grab your ticket now!

After party

We are continuing the fun and conversations after the event just round the corner at Dirty MartiniWe have the private area booked upstairs (with our own bar!) and all are very welcome! Bring friends and bring the party mood.
