Made me better at my work

I got onto ‘Is This Working’ from listening to Creative Rebels. As someone who spends half the week freelance, and the other half with a company, Anna and Tiffany’s insights have helped me form better work habits and articulate my feelings to the company. The calm and openness they approach every episode with makes it feel like I’m listening to two friends, which makes the conversation feel accessible, relatable and like I’m involved in that discussion with them. Keep up the great work you two (and producer Chris)!

5 star review!

A really good insight into work culture, giving real life experiences and practical advice!

A thoughtful look at the way work changes our lives

I’ve really enjoyed the show in lockdown as I, like many people, had to reimagine the way I currently work. It’s great to see thoughtful reflections, advice and information on topics like burnout, identity, flexibility, and most importantly being brave enough to take yourself and your work seriously.
