The Reset: Huckletree meets Elizabeth Uviebinené

Thursday 9 September 2021

A must attend event for those looking to work better and live better

We are thrilled and delighted to welcome the multi-award winning author and Financial Times columnist Elizabeth Uviebinené to Huckletree for an in real life event about her celebrated book, The Reset.

At the heart of her book is a series of original interviews with people like Sadiq Khan, Cassandra Stravou, Anna Whitehouse, and Alex Mahon – those who are exploring different ideas for work, society, business, culture and ourselves. Throughout the conversation, we will ask Elizabeth to explain the central thesis of the book and what the seismic shifts of 2020 have done for resetting the work culture we exist in, the businesses we work for, the communities we’re part of, the cities we live in and the societies we shape.

Those attending will be invited to put their own questions to Elizabeth and hopefully leave feeling challenged and optimistic for how we might live and thrive in the future.
