Future Talent Conference 2014 video: Alain de Botton

Posted on by from Changeboard

Changeboard’s first Future Talent Conference took place on the 9th July 2014 at the Royal Opera House in London. Our speakers ranged from MPs to philosophers, business leaders to heads of industry. We’ll be bringing you the cream of the speakers in our series of videos from the conference.

Alain de Botton

Alain de Botton is an author and philosopher whose books have become bestsellers in 30 countries. Covering universal topics such as love, literature and travel, de Botton’s latest book (titled The News: A User’s Manual) examines how we interact with daily news.

De Botton also founded and helps to run a school in London called the School of Life.

How leaders can help employees find career meaning

Alain de Botton’s presentation looks at how we find meaning in our work, and how employers can help their employees to both enjoy and excel. The philosopher also examines how we choose a job (hint: don’t listen to your gut instinct) and how business leaders need to ensure they communicate company goals as effectively as possible.
