Event description

Description

Blackwell's are delighted to announce that throughout the Oxford Literary Festival, Saturday 30th March- Sunday 7th April, we will be hosting a series of 'Marquee Moments' free talks in our Blackwell's Festival Marquee. Guest speakers will introduce the topic of their book in a brief 30 minute talk that is free to attend.

As our lives become ever busier - with work, family life and digital demands - our coping mechanisms are meditation apps, weekend breaks and annual holidays, but things soon revert. To prosper, we need a more sustainable approach - an ability to pause. From taking a breath to taking a sabbatical, a pause can be many things. And the good news is, even just a small pause every now and again can make a real and lasting difference. Find out more in this thought provoking talk from local author, Robert Poynton.

Robert Poynton is an Associate Fellow of the Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford, where he works on Leadership and Executive Education, helping senior leaders understand complexity and change. He is one of the founders of On Your Feet, a boutique consultancy that uses improvisational ideas, tools and experiences to help people in organisations (including Nike, Intel and Disney) work together more effectively and creatively. He is also the author of 'Do Improvise' (Do Books, 2013).

The Blackwell's Festival Marquee will be located in the Clarendon Quad of the Bodleian Library. All talks taking place in the marquee are free to attend and everyone is welcome. Please register to attend in advance or drop by on the day. Seating is allocated on a first come, first seated basis, so please arrive early to ensure a seat.
