Better: The wellbeeing revolution and human-friendly business, is a new book which describes how an alternative worldview has gone mainstream, transforming the way we work and live. Its author, John Grant, will be in conversation with AQR's Louella Miles in our next Facebook Live.

Better? You bet!

  • How does ‘care’ feature in your workplace? And how could it?
  • As we go into Brexit, what do we ‘care’ as we’re all so divided and we’re likely to be a recession before long? Or is this our big opportunity to reboot our society?
  • We’re encouraged from birth to play by the rules…yet innovation seems to come from breaking them. Will ‘wellbeeing’ only come about if there is an education revolution, and should parents start even earlier to think about how to set rules/parameters?

For some answers, listen in to John Grant, co-founder of the legendary 1990s London creative agency St Luke’s and more recently adviser to such diverse names as innocent, IKEA, Dyson, Napster, Unilever and the Catalan independence movement, in conversation with AQR’s Louella Miles in our next Facebook Live. It coincides with the launch of his latest book Better: The wellbeeing revolution and human-friendly business, which describes how an alternative worldview has gone mainstream, transforming the way we work and live.

Wellbeing is 80% social, which is why his book calls it wellbeeing. Just like bees, we are a social species. We need much more than good food and exercise to thrive. We need fellowship and belonging, a stimulating environment, contact with nature, happy communities, a sense of purpose. And that’s where business comes in.
