In her speech, Julia Hobsbawm will cover her core theme in the book, that of Social Health, and how to develop similar fitness and wellbeing strategies around information technology, social networks, and time management. She will also address the question of social mobility, and argue that the best lessons of the 'Old Boy Network' need to be brought into wider circulation, rather than to restrict the lessons and secrets of successful network-building.
