Event description
Conscious Work is a day to examine how we work and how we can better align our work with other parts of our lives

About this Event

Conscious Work.

Stress, burnout, exhaustion and disengagement are at record levels in our working lives. They're eroding our productivity and our wellbeing.

But work can be better.

Conscious Work is a day to examine how we work and how we can better align our work lives with the meaning, mindfulness, health, happiness, purpose and productivity we all want to achieve.

We'll discover the mindsets and knowledge we need to work smarter and perform at our best, and the wisdom and cultural shifts required to rest more and feel better.

This is not just a feel-good fest or a great experience (though it will be both of those). Supported by Arianna Huffingtons Thrive Global and a range of cutting edge thinkers, it's a pathway to embedding the latest science and research around motivation, performance, behaviour change and workplace culture into our everyday lives and our workplaces.

Whether you're leading a team or company, or you're part of one, join us to consciously shape and rethink the way we work.
