Unf*cking Work

The Unf*cking Work podcast is for People Professionals, Business Owners, Leaders and anyone wanting to start their own mutiny and unf*ck the workplace.
Podcasts will go out every other Thursday, and we will be chatting to experts about a focused topic, what it means for the workplace, and their tips and advice.
This is a Work Pirates production with your hosts, James Eves and Michelle Minnikin. We are passionate about re-writing the rules of work.
Climb aboard and join the movement.
