If your personal life is suffering because of your work, come to the Great Work/Life Debate.

If you don't have the time, make some. Our report on the work/life crisis in last month's issue has struck an important chord. So, if you are working longer hours, are burdened with increasing levels of pressure and disillusioned by diminishing control over your working life, come to the Great Work/Life Debate, organised by Management Today in conjunction with The Times.

The conference will take place in London on 8 October and speakers will include Liz Bargh of WfD, who will present the results of the Work/Life report, professor Cary Cooper of the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST), Fiona Cannon, director of equal opportunities at Lloyds TSB, Rabbi Julia Neuberger, Ted Smith, head of personnel at Glaxo Wellcome, and Susan Lax, leader of diversity development at fast food chain McDonald's.

Topics will include employee flexibility and changing demographics. There will also be case studies from both corporate and personal perspectives.

For further details on the conference and booking, contact Tania Cassell on 0171 413 4116.
