Speakers

We are delighted to welcome Bruce Daisley, European Vice President of Twitter, to Liverpool to talk to us about his new No.1 Sunday Times Bestseller ‘The Joy of Work’.

In the course of a career at the helm of companies including Google, YouTube and Twitter, Bruce Daisley has become fascinated by culture of the workplace. Now, in The Joy of Work, he shares the fruits of his discoveries. Are lunch breaks for wimps or do they actually make us more productive? Is it true that you can improve team performance simply by moving the location of the kettle or coffee machine? And what is a Monk Mode Morning, and why do people swear by it?

If you’re not happy with the status quo, if you think things could be done better, if you’re seeking greater fulfilment at work and a life that is a little less fraught, The Joy of Work will point the way.

Join us for lunch, Bruce’s talk and a chance to network with your peers. Everyone that registers and attends will receive a copy of The Joy of Work (rrp £20).

The event is free to BIMA Members (one free place per company) and £20 + VAT and fees for Non-Members. Subsidised tickets also available from our strategic partners.

BIMA Members, to secure your free place please email louisefinch@bima.co.uk.

Bruce Daisley is European Vice President for Twitter and host of the UK’s number one business podcast Eat Sleep Work Repeat. He is also a regular on the conference circuit, addressing business leaders on the main stage of the CBI Annual Conference in 2017, and at that year’s Management Today annual summit and Financial Times 125 Club, as well as many tech industry events around Europe. He has been one of the Evening Standard’s 1,000 most influential Londoners for 4 years and is one of Debrett’s 500 Most Influential People in Britain. Campaign magazine asserted that Bruce is ‘one of the most talented people in media’.
