On January 24, The Convent in Stroud will host an evening of lively debate about the way we live, love and work, with Margaret Heffernan & Professor Helen Taylor.

Texan entrepreneur, author and business analyst Margaret Heffernan, will be in conversation with the literary and cultural scholar Professor Helen Taylor.

Margaret Heffernan will challenge assumptions about collusion, competition and rivalry and discusses the damaging effects of single-minded competitiveness and a prize-winning, league-table culture, arguing instead for a plural, collaborative society.

Professor Helen Taylor discusses women’s self-confidence and ability to compete in a man’s world and reflects on the ways that books and films can offer positive and inspiring role models in women’s lives.

The event is a unique opportunity to watch these two formidable women engage in lively debate about the bigger prizes life can offer.

You can attend the event in person or purchase a live stream (available for 7 days after) - to book, visit:
