The London Speaker Bureau has been running a series of webinars over the past months. These episodes are focused on sharing advice, support, and insights to businesses on how to navigate these troubling and uncertain times.
Working from home has had an impact on millions of people around the world. However, right now we should be asking ourselves: how we can stay creative, resilient and happy in our ‘new normal’?.
To help answer some of these questions we invited Bruce Daisley, former European Vice President of Twitter and best-selling author of “Eat, Sleep, Work, Repeat”, along with technology futurist Shivvy Jervis, to really delve into these subjects. Daisley and Jervis provided incredible insights into how we might be feeling collectively right now, how we can learn from our circumstances and looking to how the future version of work may look.
Bruce Daisley is a best-selling author and technology leader who spent eight years as EMEA Vice President for Twitter after joining in 2012. Prior to this, Daisley ran YouTube UK at Google and has also worked at Emap/Bauer and Capital Radio.
He is an expert on the transformations that modern work is undergoing, acting as a consultant for a wide variety of companies. These range from the hottest new technology sensations to centuries-old primary production firms. Whether addressing governmental bodies or banking organisations, he has been praised for sharing an inspiring vision of the future of work and leaving audiences with actionable insights into their own companies.
Highlighting the importance of improving work culture, his book “Eat Sleep, Work, Repeat” is a compelling manifesto for an era overwhelmed with work pressures. He is currently writing a new book on the subject of resilience, which will hopefully be available later in 2021.
Recently named one of ten most trailblazing entrepreneurs of Asian origin (as the Founder of ambitious social innovation advisory FutureScape 248), Shivvy Jervis has proven herself to be one of the most illuminating Futurists of her time. A former contributor to CNN Asia and Reuters, Jervis has notched up over 12 years of broadcasting experience and 400+ hours of programming.
Her insights have earned an astounding 24 pieces of recognition – highlights include receiving a Britain’s Asian Women of Achievement award and being named one of Europe’s female Role Models of the Year for 2020. She is known for her unique ability to zero in on only the most remarkable innovations that will advance both business and mankind, and to be one of a tiny handful of women in her field.
