The future of work
Creativity and innovation
Bruce Daisley is European Vice-President for Twitter and host of the UK’s number one business podcast, Eat Sleep Work Repeat (which also peaked at no. 4 in the US).
His highly anticipated book, The Joy Of Work: 30 Ways to Fix Your Work Culture and Fall in Love with Your Job Again (January 2019), tackles the key issues of 21st century office life, providing practical, empirically-tested advice on how to create a more productive and inspiring work culture.
Bruce has been one of the Evening Standard’s 1,000 Most Influential Londoners for four 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’.
Drawing on his own research and a career that has spanned top jobs at Google, Youtube and Twitter, Bruce delivers a brilliant array of down-to-earth insights into how we can be more productive and find greater fulfilment at work. In the words of The Times:
"Bruce Daisley is on a mission to change the world of work and help ordinary people to kick their addiction to digital communication. His thesis is attractive and compelling: rather than free us up, new technology is tying us to our devices and desks and raising stress and unhappiness at work with no discernible increase in productivity . . . Daisley may be the man to lead the pushback."
He is a highly experienced keynote speaker, having addressed many tech conferences as well as business leaders on the main stage of the CBI Annual Conference in 2017, and at Management Today’s annual summit and the Financial Times 125 Club in the same year.
From inside the flap:
“…in The Joy of Work, [Bruce Daisley] shares the fruits of his discoveries in 30 succinct tips that range across all aspects of 21st-century office life and that combine inspiration, empirically tested insight and down-to-earth practical answers in equal measure. 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? Why are meetings so often a waste of time, and how can they be fixed? And what are Monk Mode Mornings and Hack Weeks, and why do people swear by them?”
