Penguin Random House, the UK’s biggest publisher of personal development books, announces a stimulating new consumer and B2B lifestyle brand
Penguin Living is about taking the ideas, advice and insight of our unrivalled stable of leading authors and experts, and sharing them with our audiences throughout the year. Through extensive audience research and insight we know that our books resonate with readers and have a huge impact on their lives. Our aim is, and has always been, to empower people to ‘live life better’ whether this is at work, at play or at home. Penguin Living provides a new way to promote our authors and experts, bringing them directly to the consumer and to the attention of new audiences. The focus will be on two core audience strands – consumer and business to business.
Rebecca Smart, Managing Director of Ebury, a division of Penguin Random House (whose imprints include two of the leading personal development imprints, Vermilion and Rider) said, ‘Penguin Living is an exciting audience focused initiative that provides our authors with new ways to connect with readers both through and beyond the book. The Penguin Living team is planning a range of services to inspire and inform our audiences so that they can live, work and play better’
On September 11th, we’re holding a CAREERS IMMERSION DAY at Conway Hall, 10-3pm

The day will be divided into three segments – Getting a New Job, Managing Your Career and Career Choices with our authors and experts offering tips on CV Do’s and Don’ts, how to give a great interview, changing careers and flexible working. Authors confirmed so far for our Careers Immersion Day on 11 September include Tim Vincent (author of Nail That Interview), Caroline Goyder (author of Gravitas), Alice Olins and Phanella Mayall Fine (authors of Step Up) and John Williams,(author of Screw Work and Break Free). Books will be on sale throughout the day.
