In partnership with Bristol Media, we are delighted to welcome Bruce Daisley, European Vice President of Twitter, to Bristol to talk to us about his new No.1 Sunday Times Bestseller ‘The Joy of Work’.

In the course of a career that has taken him from some of the world’s biggest media companies to Twitter, via Google and YouTube, Bruce Daisley has become fascinated by what makes great companies tick. And in his hugely popular podcast Eat Sleep Work Repeat, he has dug right into the DNA of work, talking to leading experts about how we can make our jobs more fulfilling, more productive – and much more enjoyable. 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?

All of us have moments when we can end up feeling overwhelmed with meetings, our inbox and the demands of our job. What about if we looked to science for the answer? What can all of us do to feel more energised, creative and to start loving our job again? Bruce gives a fast, entertaining and inspiring whizz through the way to enjoy work again.
