Event 2

Arthur Brooks in conversation with Lisa Bevill and Geoffroy Gérard

Second chance at happiness

Venue: IE Tower, Club de profesores, planta 24, Madrid

After many successful careers, strivers, as Arthur Brooks like to call them, question how to find greater happiness as they age and change. His last book From Strength to Strength: Finding Success, Happiness and Deep Purpose in the second half of life, instant #1 New York Times Bestseller, touch on this crucial point for our careers as we look for aging with impact. Brooks reinvented himself several times in his career, from musician, to academic, to being the 11th President of the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), to author of more than 10 books, and now back to academia, as Harvard Kennedy School and Harvard Business School professor and weekly columnist with How to build a life at The Atlantic. He will give us an overview of his thinking followed by a conversation moderated by Geoffroy Gérard, Director General at IE Foundation, and Lisa Bevill, Academic Director of IE Center for Health, Well-Being and Happiness.

The event will be introduced by Santiago Iñiguez, Vice President of Hay Festival Segovia, President of IE University and author of several books including Philosophy Inc. Applying Wisdom to Everyday Management.
