“Penguin Living brings a whole new dimension to The Feelgood Plan. Talking to readers about the wellbeing issues that matter to them - from what to have for lunch to avoiding the office snack trap or how to get more sleep - brings the book alive. It's a privilege to be part of the project.”

- Kate Faithfull-Williams, author of The Feel Good Plan



Penguin Living Author Workshops

Workshop programmes delivered by our inspirational authors, tailored to your business’ specific requirements and objectives.

Penguin Living events are totally bespoke and we will work hand-in-hand with your team to deliver one that is right for you. 


This can involve anything from a 3000 seater conference venue, to one-to-one coaching for a leadership team or even a 90 minute interactive workshop for a team away day.

We always include books or other resources to take away to ensure the learning continues long after the event itself.

‘General Martin E. Dempsey said: “The most important responsibility of leaders is to make their people feel like they belong" - and business leaders are increasingly turning to book clubs as a way to do it.’

Why book clubs are the new business must have


Penguin Living Books

Penguin Living has access to the largest library of English language book publishing in the world.

We will work with you to find the books that are right for your organisation, either as a staff reward, a way of fast tracking change or to teach practical skills.

For example, do you want to improve resilience within your company? We would be happy to recommend Angela Duckworth’s Grit, the leading work in this area.

Or perhaps you would like to inspire your leadership team with copies of Simon Sinek’s Start With Why? Or encourage new perspectives with Francesca Martinez’s superb What the **** is Normal?

The list is endless and Penguin Living is here to help you address the specific needs of your organisation.
