Live Q&A with Alex Soojung-Kim Pang, Author of ‘Rest’, ‘Shorter’ & ‘The Distraction Addiction’
“Hi, I’m the founder of Strategy and Rest, a consultancy devoted to helping companies and individuals harness the power of rest to shorten our workdays, while staying focused and productive.
My work has been written about in the New York Times, the New Yorker, the Financial Times, the Guardian, and other venues.
I’m the author of four books, including SHORTER: WORK BETTER, SMARTER, AND LESS– HERE’S HOW (US | UK); REST: WHY YOU GET MORE DONE WHEN YOU WORK LESS (US | UK); and THE DISTRACTION ADDICTION (US). Together, these books have been translated into more than a dozen languages.
My op-eds and articles have appeared in The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, the South China Morning Post, and many other venues.
I speak around the world (and also virtually) about the 4-day week and future of work, and how deliberate rest makes creative careers more productive and sustainability. I’ve given talks and led workshops around the world, from California to Korea to Azerbaijan.
I also lead workshops and consult with companies and individuals who want to learn how to over-perform without overworking.”
Alex will be featuring in a live Q&A panel chaired by Lesley Pinder in September to answer questions like, ‘how can I make limited time off feel substantial?’, ‘does a shorter working week make me more productive?’, and ‘how do I get more done in less time?’
- People who feel like they have too much work and not enough time to do it in
- People wanting to spend their free time more effectively
- Fundraisers presented with reduced working hours and no reduction in responsibilities
- Anyone looking for a better work/life balance
Thank you to Alex for giving his time for free and allowing the Q&A to be free of charge.
September 9th, 2020 / 3pm UK / 1hr duration.
