Anna Whitehouse and Matt Farquharson

Anna Whitehouse and Matt Farquharson

Anna Whitehouse aka Mother Pukka is the trailblazing Sunday Times best-selling author, mother and campaigner behind the Flex Appeal movement (flexible working for all), the premise of which helped form the powerhouse Flex For All Campaign recently addressed in parliament.

Anna is open, honest, well informed and witty in her voice as Mother Pukka which is a platform created to share the trials and tribulations of parenthood and beyond. She was also announced as LinkedIn’s Top Voices of 2019. Anna topped the Apple Kids and Family Podcast chart at No.1 with Dirty Mother Pukka and her weekly Sunday show on Heart radio has pulled in thousands of new listeners.

She has also collaborated with brands including Samsung, McDonald’s, Specsavers and Garnier, and regularly speaks on panels to address workplace issues in her campaign for change. Anna is a force to be reckoned with not just within the parenting space but for anyone who has a penchant for honest accounts of how to navigate your way through life with wit and purpose.

Matt Farquharson aka Papa Pukka and wife Anna are fantastic team and their audiences have found their fresh approach to parenting a total relief which is reflected through their brand tag line ‘people that happen to be parents’. Along with Anna, Matt is a Sunday Times Bestselling author of “Parenting the Shit Out of Life” and a new joint-book “Where’s My Happy Ending” launched in February 2020 and quickly became a Sunday Times Bestseller also.

Sleep Expert

James Wilson, known as The Sleep Geek, is one of the UK’s leading sleep behaviour experts, helping people nationwide to solve their sleep issues. As well as assisting people to sleep better, James’ Sleep Lab works alongside household companies such as the NHS and Coca-Cola in producing products, services and environments to ensure everyone can get the sleep they deserve.


Having suffered from insomnia from a young age, and confused by the support on offer from the medical profession and Sleep Experts at the time, James decided to tackle the problem hands-on in his late twenties by training as a sleep practitioner. This, along with his personal experience with poor sleep, gave him a unique insight in helping people to solve their sleep issues, and so The Sleep Geek was born. Working closely with his clients, James provides a clear and concise programme which is individually tailored to their personal needs (suitable for teenagers and adults). He also offers an informative sleep guide to help parents with younger children too.
