Lizzie Penny & Alex Hirst

Co-founders & Authors, Workstyle Revolution

Lizzie Penny and Alex Hirst are friends, entrepreneurs, inspiring speakers and changemakers.

They have been leading the workstyle revolution for a decade, co-founding a social enterprise, Hoxby, in 2014 to prove the concept. 

They have helped thousands of workstylers around the world to set, project and respect their own workstyles, and are conducting pioneering research into the link between autonomy, productivity and wellbeing. Their business has delivered projects in a workstyle way for some of the biggest brands in the world. 

Lizzie has three young children, lives in Bristol, and has recently recovered from breast cancer. Alex suffered from debilitating burnout, before starting a family and leaving London for a village in rural Oxfordshire. Together they came up with the concept of workstyle in response to their negative experiences of a 9–5 traditional working week.
