Ideas

Mia Freedman: Work Strife Balance

in conversation with Rebecca Sparrow

Dates

FRI 28 APRIL, 2017

Tickets

$30–$35*
Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse

Mia Freedman sits down with Rebecca Sparrow for an exclusive and intimate chat to celebrate the release of her latest book, Work Strife Balance.

There are many, many books written by successful women who talk about how successful they are and float their theory about how you can get some of that success for yourself if you just Lean In, Say Yes, Live Your Best Life, Beat Your Fear or Sleep More. Work Strife Balance is not one of those books.

Join Mia as she shares honest observations – learnt from life’s experiences. Mia and Rebecca’s discussion will range from sharing not only your successes and your triumphs but the real stuff of life too; eating disorders; grief; divorce; losing a job; losing a loved one; losing your mind and infertility.

An evening of insight and celebration of valuable failures, significant setbacks and mortifying slip-ups in life, love and work. At Mamamia they call it FLEARNING – failing and learning. Learning through failing.

Writers+Ideas is supported by O’Neill Architecture and RPS.
