Looking for some fun, thought-provoking free events in London? We’re so excited to announce our latest collaboration with WeWork on a series of author events in the capital: The Thinking Stage. Throughout the month of November, we’re partnering up with WeWork to host a range of brilliant, inspiring authors, ask questions and to hear their stories. The series of talks are designed to provide an inspiring start and end to the working day; championing a different theme each week, the programme of fireside talks with authors and leading experts will explore critical innovations, how tech is transforming communication, women in the workplace, and gaze into the future.

Tickets to the event are free and books will be on sale at each event. Guests will be invited to join in the conversation and mingle afterwards, over food, snacks and music. Simply click on the links below to reserve your spot! Here’s what’s coming up on The Thinking Stage:
