Author nominated for the Man Booker Prize to speak at Espresso event
Man Booker Prize nominee to talk at InFocus Espresso event
“Productivity is not how busy you are – it’s how you can achieve more by using the tools and resources available.” These are the words of Wyl Menmuir: a novelist based in Cornwall who we’ll be welcoming as a speaker on the topic of ‘personal productivity’ at our next InFocus Espresso Event on December 4th.
Wyl is an editor, literary consultant and lecturer in creative writing at Falmouth University and Manchester Metropolitan University. His first novel, The Many, was nominated for the Man-Booker Prize and was an Observer Best Fiction of the Year pick.
He has written for Radio 4’s Open Book, The Guardian and The Observer and he is co-creator of the Cornish writing centre, The Writers’ Block.
Whilst writing his debut novel, Wyl adopted tools to block social media and downloaded a pioneering app to help him track his progress. During the Espresso event he’ll dive into the benefits of tracking progress, reflecting on the highs and lows of a creative journey and using productivity tools both online and off to ensure you not only stay on track but finish what you start.
I’m delighted to be asked to speak at the InFocus Espresso event next month. In work and in life, we’re constantly striving to do it all, to reach the end of our ever-expanding to-do lists, and stretching ourselves beyond reasonable capacity. This is particularly relevant when you are your own boss or the boss of a small team. I’ll be sharing the tools that I use to manage my workload and exploring how you can make the most of those passion projects for which you’re not yet being paid.
Wyl joins Laura Whyte from Whyfield and keynote, Kate Doodson co-founder of Cosmic UK as a speaker at our Espresso event, ‘Better Business: It’s in your hands’ on December 4th at the St Austell Conference Centre.
