"It was a great opportunity to hear the experiences and common challenges of fellow working Dads and to share some of the practical ideas we all have to effectively balance our work and family time."
Ed Damant, FIM Marketing & Sales

“The basic concept is that it’s the same person who comes to work who was at home.  If you’ve got issues at home with your children then you’re going to be less productive at work”
D Wilson, Head of People Networks, BT, Sunday Times

"It was really good to see how much the guys really cared about trying to be a great Dad and just how many of the challenges we face are the same, whether we had one new baby or a house full of belligerent teenagers."
Andy Campbell, Head of Sales Ophthalmics, Novartis Pharmaceuticals
