Ummm – of course! This is a Moms at Work summit! Who would we be if we didn’t offer a free recording. We would love you to attend live but if you can’t we will share the recordings to those signed up for our newsletter. Not on the list? Better fix that and join here
I am sad that you have to ask this! But the answer is yes. We have asked our speakers to do limited prep work other than to review our questions and we have asked them to choose what they would like to speak about. What is important to THEM. (Shocking I know). Moms at Work aims to set new standards.
