A Night in with
Join broadcaster, podcast host and Sunday Times bestselling author Emma Gannon, in conversation with Farrah Storr to celebrate the publication of her new book The Success Myth.
What if we were told that our obsession with achievement is a trap? That everything we've been led to believe about traditional success is a lie?
Emma had everything she'd longed for: a string of successful books to her name, a thriving portfolio career, speaking engagements around the world ... She was also burned out and confused at why she felt unhappy, yet still striving for more.
After taking a deep look at her own journey, and interviewing many other successful people on her podcast Ctrl, Alt, Delete, she has realised that our overly celebrated and traditional version of success is making us lonely, unfulfilled and dispirited. Now she has worked out a way to do things differently.
In conversation with Farrah for this special virtual event, Emma will Explore the most commonly held myths about what it traditionally means to be successful, from money to happiness to ticking society's ready-made boxes and choosing to do things on our own terms. The Success Myth will give you the belief and tools to walk away from 'having it all' and encourages you to be honest about what truly sparks your interests, and helps to uncover your individual path to a truly fulfilling life, whatever that may look like. Don’t miss out on this inspirational event.

“A highly comforting book which - while not minimizing the pressures that we're all under to achieve - nevertheless gently reminds us that it is what we are, not what we do, that will always ultimately count.” Alain de Botton
