WHAT he OFFERS YOU
Acclaimed philosopher, Alain de Botton masterfully combines philosophy with pragmatism. He offers a kinder, gentler philosophy of success, giving us a great lesson on how to relate to ourselves, and how to relax counter-productive emotions. Alain makes a convincing case how to find true pleasure in our work and skilfully raises the big questions we all tend to ask of our work. His goal is to help clients understand "how to live wisely and well".
