I will be speaking about “Falling in Love with Work—Again” on Saturday April 24th in Nantucket.
I often speak to groups of people about the themes in this blog and my upcoming book, but this will be my very first time to speak to the public on just this topic. Most of my prior speaking engagements have another topic as their core and being happy at work is not the focal point of the talk. I also usually speak to captive audiences—people from work or at conferences where the participants share a common interest. Having said this, I truly believe that nearly all work topics that I speak about—leadership, building a career, setting goals—have to be anchored by being happy at work. But this is the first time that “being happy at work” is the feature performer!
As with anything new, I am both excited and a little nervous. When I talk about being happy at work, I get a lot of positive reinforcement, such as: it’s a timely topic, many people will identify with it, tips for being happy at work are always interesting. Still, it’s a new and very public path for me, so wish me luck!
The event is open to the public and admission is free. It’s April 24th from 3:00 to 4:00 PM at Hendrix Hall, The Unitarian Church, 11 Orange Street, Nantucket, MA.
