A fantastic workshop led by Hobbs Consultancy featuring certified co-active coach Roxanne Hobbs and Daniele Fiandaca, founder of Token Man.

Roxanne is a certified coach, passionate about the D&I agenda, and founded Hobbs Consultancy on the deep-seated belief that adland needed to do better to support women. Daniele founded Token Man in order to engage men with the I&D strategy and inspire them to become change-makers.
