The Reset – Ideas To Change How We Work and Live

Elizabeth Uviebinené, author of Slay In Your Lane, with Hannah MacInnes

The award-winning author and FT columnist has spent a year investigating how to radically shift how we live. She joins us to share fresh, provocative and optimistic new perspectives.

Co-authored with her best friend Yomi Adegoke, Elizabeth Uviebinené’s debut bestseller Slay In Your Lane brought her national acclaim for giving a ‘voice to the next generation of young black British women’ (Vogue) and offering a guide to forging a better, visible future.

Now Elizabeth joins How To Academy to share the results of a year-long investigation into emerging ideas to radically improve how we live. She has interviewed some of the most exciting politicians, business leaders and thinkers working in the UK today – from Mayor of London Sadiq Khan and MP Nadia Whittome, to Channel 4 CEO Alex Mahon and forecaster Karen Rosenkranz. In this In Conversation event, she will share her insights and present a vision for a better future.

If we rethink how we fit in, everything resets around us – the work culture we exist in, the businesses we work for, the communities we’re a part of, the cities we live in and the society we shape. We can’t just rethink one strand of society; we need to rethink everything together.
