Leading philosopher Alain de Botton shares five ways in which we might achieve greater emotional well-being. These include ideas to defeat the impostor syndrome, to overcome perfectionism, to learn the art of compromise and to become grateful and appreciative of what is still worth cherishing. He will also introduce his pioneering work with The School of Life, an organisation devoted to helping people lead more fulfilled lives. You will come away hopeful of what we can change and reassured that we are not alone in suffering.

This event is part of Life Lessons Festival, a weekend of big talks from big thinkers presented by The Sunday Times, featuring headline events in partnership with Penguin Live.

Life Lessons takes place at The Barbican, London on 15th and 16th February 2020.
