Proving that you can work flexibly at top levels in the promotions industry.

 

We are delighted to announce that Becky Munday has been named in the 2019 Power 50 awards: a list of 50 powerful executives in the UK – who all happen to work part-time or flexibly.

The 2019 Timewise Power 50 Awards have been compiled by the flexibility specialists Timewise (www.timewise.co.uk), following a nationwide search. The List provides a snapshot of what modern work in Britain is truly like and challenges the belief part-time work can’t mean ambitious, highly successful and senior.

Co-founders Karen Mattison MBE and Emma Stewart MBE and run the awards to champion modern day patterns of work, and role model trailblazing individuals and businesses that are forging the way for others and their employers. A fresh List has been published annually since 2012, in order to prove ‘what’s possible’ when you work part time or flexibly – and that our concept of what a part time job is, or can be, is changing. The initiative has the backing of EY, Dixons Carphone, Lloyds Banking Group and Diageo.

This year we are extremely proud to announce that Becky Munday has been honoured – working in the promotions industry, 3 days a week since 2003 to spend time with her ageing family and look after her two sons.

  • Launching two new divisions Mando-Connect and Universal Card.
  • Leading the business to cover over 3000 promotions winning over 10 industry accolades.

Becky’s warm-hearted approach gives flexibility specially to working parents who are empowered to fulfil their potential without the restrictions of the regular 9-to-5. She has also helped re-energise the promotional marketing industry and raise money for charity.

Through her support of women and parents:

  • Becky named CoppaFeel! the breast cancer awareness charity as IPM’s first ever official charity, and hosted a range of awareness and fundraising activities which raised £20,000.

About the Timewise Power 50 Awards
The Timewise Power 50 Awards, sometimes referred to as ‘The List’ is a roll-call of 50 individuals who work part-time and flexibly in top jobs, with a spotlight on employers that are exceptional at innovation in flexible job design and / or flexible hiring. The awards were set up to challenge people’s perceptions around what a part-time job is, or can be, and on what flexible workers can achieve.
The judges were tasked with building a distinct list of 50 individuals or pairs of people who demonstrate significant achievement as flexible workers in the broadest sense – from those succeeding in part-time hours or as a job-share team, returning to the workplace after a significant career break, through to those who have used their own start-up status to determine their own flexibility.
