Video: It started with a… bump


Dana Denis-Smith is a former journalist and Linklaters lawyer. Today she is an innovator and an entrepreneur. And a mother. Given so much of Obelisk’s vision is based around providing flexible working for mothers, in a way that suits Obelisk’s clients, lawyers and their families, it would be easy to think that Obelisk was inspired by Dana’s own experiences after starting her own family. But this is not the case. The idea behind Obelisk was conceived before Dana’s pregnancy; her bump. This animation, narrated by Dana, tells the story.
