How to make being made redundant a good thing

Eleanor Tweddell founded Another Door when she was made redundant and had a feeling she wanted to do something other than corporate life. She had previously worked for organisations such as Costa Coffee, Virgin Atlantic and Vodafone - but it felt like it was time to change. She wrote a blog, started a podcast and her book 'Why losing your job could be the best thing to happen to you' will be out in Autumn 2020, published by Penguin. Another Door is a club supporting people in the space in-between a door closing and the next door opening, and takes people from shock to thriving. Another Door also works with businesses to handle redundancies fairly and supports with outplacement workshops. Eleanor believes that when a door closes in your life it can be a good thing, if you want it to be.

Work smarter not harder. My top 7 tips to be more effective. 

I have been working flexible hours at home since 2015, with a background in digital marketing and social media strategy. I always valued the flexibility this gave me going to the gym when no one else did, arranging my schedule in a way that suited me. It also took incredible self-discipline, organisation and the ability to set my own deadlines! When I became a mum in 2017, I still enjoyed the flexibility but found it harder to have any sort of social life and did miss the buzz of an office. So I started a pop-up Co-Working Club with a creche facility as well as regular workshops, training and socials which was running 3 times a week in Twickenham, Esher and Teddington until the lockdown started.
I'm passionate about supporting local entrepreneurs and freelancers to grow their businesses, so I'm also now training (online of course!) to become an accredited holistic coach, building on my degree in psychology, and fascination with how we can play to our personal strengths. I also offer 1:1 business and marketing mentoring and personality profiling.
