Christine Armstrong is Contributing Editor of Management Today and co-founder of communications consultancy Jericho Chambers. She‘s married with three daughters and is – against her own advice – an active member of the school PTA. 

She is currently writing The Mother of All Jobs which shares the stories and learning of mothers who shared everything (and we mean everything) about having a career and raising families. The book rips apart glossy lives presented on social media and in magazines and explores how, while it’s not always pretty, working mothers can thrive if they have the knowledge others learnt the hard way. As practical as What to Expect When You‘re Expecting and as human as Bridget Jones’ Diary, this book is grounded in real stories that every working parent can relate to, cringe at and learn from. 

Prior to Jericho, Christine spent twenty years in advertising, PR & research agencies, based in London, Toronto and Washington DC. Christine is currently working with the CIPD on the Future of Work is Human Campaign and researching the Circular Economy. She recently introduced plastic fishing to London’s docks and launched a boat made out of 99% recycled plastic.

“A guided missile of a book, unflinching, practical and very funny. If you're a mother with a career (or ever want to be) and are beginning to get the feeling you've been conned, welcome to your manifesto.”

“Everything you ever wanted to know about working motherhood - and a whole load of stuff you really didn't want to know (but ought to).”
