November’s Asking For A Friend event (UK)

November 26, 2021

With guests, Luke Tonge and Daniel Alcorn from Birmingham Design Festival and psychologist, Dannielle Haig.

Asking For A Friend teams an industry leader with a psychologist to give advice on career, mental health and everything in between. It’s there for the questions you don’t yet have the courage to ask of your boss or at your workplace for fear of how you may be judged or treated. Of course, we hope you can ask those questions, but just in case, you can ask them anonymously for a friend instead.
