Christine Armstrong is a Future of Work speaker, researcher, author and vlogger.
By exploring current trends and data, workplace communications and culture, work-life balance and remote working, Christine examines the new challenges to the old ways of doing business. These include the productivity paradox, communication overload, the challenges of boundaries and flexible work, burn out and resilience. She also explores the impact of working practices on different groups, including parents and carers.
Christine co-founded Jericho Chambers, an early example of flexible and hybrid work. She writes regularly for the Times and Telegraph and is a contributing editor of Management Today.
She is also the author of ‘The Mother of All Jobs: how to have children and a career and stay sane(ish)‘, published by Bloomsbury. The book is based on six years of interviews with working parents, employers, leadership experts and carers. The book was a finalist in the Business Book UK awards 2019.
She continues her research into the experiences of women and work and has just completed a tour of the country interviewing women in ‘mid-life’ about how they define success and what they want for the future.
Christine and her team are researching employees’ responses to the cost of living crisis and the predicted downturn.
