Living to work or working to live?

Session Overview

Rector of St. James’s Church Piccadilly, Lucy, will explore the purpose of work and how the culture of our working environment can be developed to add not just value but meaning to your team.  Bringing your whole self to work has become a cliché, but what could that mean in practice, given that a huge proportion of our waking hours are spent working. Do we work to live or live to work?
