Anna Whitehouse aka Mother Pukka
Anna is a campaigner, journalist, presenter and wife and mother. Anna created the campaign for flexible working hours using #FlexAppeal which has seen her give a TEDx talk, lead lycra-clad flash mobs, present to major industry leaders, speak at the Welsh Assembly and work alongside MPs in Westminster to create a Flexible Working Bill as part of her campaign for flexible working for all.
“This is not just for mothers or for fathers, it’s for people suffering from anxiety, people living with disability, caring responsibilities – people just wanting to live.”
Anna was on the panel at the very first Share My Telly Job event back in May 2018 and has supported our work ever since. As a freelancer herself, she understands the specific pressures that can come with trying to juggle a freelance career alongside other responsibilities and believes passionately that new ways of working are possible in creative industries.
