This tasty Live from Lockdown is with Alana Barry, Mum to Lucas, recently returned to work as Marketing Strategist at a software company in Edinburgh.

After mat leave she returned to a bigger, higher profile role, rather than taking the "safe" option and is brimming with confidence and clarity on her personal brand and goals.

We discuss Alana’s mid-week rituals including how she loves to unwind by cooking healthy and tasty meals for her family. There’s even a little recipe advice for you on slow cooker stews (Ideal for one of my favourite productivity hacks- batch cooking!)

Alana is an active member of The Women's Vault Community (The Tribe!) and a recent graduate of The Women's Vault online and accessible 'The Return to Work with Confidence' Program.
