WHY WE EXIST

It’s time to lead differently because…

today corporate organisations face an overwhelming triple threat;

  1. Accelerated change causing increasing anxiety
  2. Disruptive technologies causing a growing skills gap
  3. Collective citizenship causing employee activism & unrest

which calls for a complex, systemic solution to mitigate human and commercial risk;

  • Responsible leadership know-how to build trust & share accountability
  • Cognitive agility training for all to upskill for unknown futures
  • Community first culture anchored by a through-line social purpose

we exist to achieve equitable working futures for all.

Our founder

Flux is a social enterprise founded by business-for-good activist, Lucy Hackshaw. Refusing to accept ‘business as usual’, Flux offers a new way. One that is recognised for its working world relevance, academic rigour, and creative application. As featured in Stylist and Forbes.

WHO WE
WORK WITH

We support institutions of all sizes, and individuals at all stages, who want to stay at the forefront of 21st century business.

“My Flux coach was very insightful. Their style was compassionate, impactful, and they seemed unafraid of holding me accountable. Most importantly, they helped me access my curiosity to overcome things that were holding me back. I highly recommend Flux!“

Mark Somen, Global CEO, The Conduit

“Flux, characterised by its detailed consideration of stakeholders, delivers a very high level of professionalism, creativity and stakeholder engagement, and never fails to support a team to design a relevant solution to a challenge.“

Peter Childs, Founding Head of School,
Dyson School of Design Engineering

“Lucy’s keynote offered valuable and engaging insights on the topic of mental health and wellbeing at work. Her style was informative but accessible, and relatable. The feedback from the young women attending was that her talk was engaging and inspiring. Biggest thanks to Flux for supporting EY’s Young Women’s Network!“

Megan Young, Programme Delivery Coordinator, EY

“After only two sessions, I experienced a very positive and notable effect on my work performance. Besides instilling confidence, our sessions have helped me think more strategically about running my research franchise.“

Cedar Ekblom, Executive Director, Morgan Stanley

WHO ELSE
BENEFITS

Working with you enables us to deliver entrepreneurial training for young people in prison so they can access equitable work and legacy positive futures upon release.

The current reality

13,496 young adults (aged 18–24) are currently in prison in England and Wales

The current learning / prepare for work curriculum in prisons is ineffective

Only 17% of people are in PAYE employment a year after leaving prison

The opportunity

The unrealised human capital is huge

Excluded young people often have transferable skills, inc. strategic problem solving and change tolerance

Upon release, entrepreneurial young people experience fewer barriers, and greater wellbeing from meaningful work

Let’s talk about designing your future.
