Nicolette covered some important themes and issues that face our colleagues with carer responsibilities. We had a lot of interest in the event. Our employees were really engaged during the event and provided very positive feedback about the session.
Women sharing their stories about what works and what doesn’t is vital if we are to create a more gender equal world - a world where work and care are not at opposite ends of one hard choice. I just wish this book had been available when I embarked on motherhood. It’s full of practical tips for women who want to build both strong careers and strong families.

I loved reading Nicolette's book. It is a compelling read for aspiring career mums. So much of it resonated with me. It’s a marvellous combination of Nicolette’s experience, the experience of her friends and colleagues and formal research.

If you want a fulfilling career and time with your children as they grow up, this practical and strategic guide is a must-read.
Nicolette's book uses McKinsey’s classic organisation framework and applies it to one of the toughest and most important areas of modern family life. The big insight is that all 7 of the “S”es need to fit together and reinforce each other, and this book provides a very thoughtful and practical way to achieve that based on experiences that will resonate with any parent trying to juggle work and family.
