Workshop: Wellbeing and Entrepreneurship – An Exploration

Date: Wednesday 29 May 2024

Time: 9:30am – 4:45pm

Place: The Brett Building, 19 Abercromby Square, Liverpool L7 7BD

Organised by the Brett Centre for Entrepreneurship (BCfE) and the Centre for Organisational and Employee Wellbeing (COEW) based at the University of Liverpool Management School, this free to attend one-day workshop aims to explore the relationship between entrepreneurship and wellbeing.

Through exploration with four world-leading expert researchers, the workshop will facilitate stimulating discussions on the possibility of a new research agenda that integrates entrepreneurship and wellbeing studies, attempting to respond to following questions, including:

  • Can entrepreneurship bring work and wellbeing together?
  • Or does wellbeing make (or un-make) entrepreneurship?
  • Can wellbeing be managed, or does it require new conceptions and forms of work organisation?
  • Does the entrepreneur need wellbeing to survive and prosper?
  • How might such relationships differ by sector, form of organisation and demography?
  • How does equality and diversity figure in wellbeing and entrepreneurship?

Chaired by the Director of the Brett Centre for Entrepreneurship,  Professor Robert Blackburn and the Director for the Centre for Organisational and Employee Wellbeing, Professor Damian O’Doherty, this interactive workshop is open to scholars and researchers who are excited to explore the relationship between entrepreneurship and wellbeing.

Drawing on a range of interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary perspectives, this workshop should appeal to colleagues working on wellbeing in entrepreneurship, human resource management, business start-ups and ownership and strategy.
