The Business of Death
Death is an unavoidable part of life – and of business. Many of us keep it in the shadows, preferring to think or talk about death and grief only when we absolutely have to. But if we are to navigate these issues well when they inevitably arise in our business, shouldn’t we be more prepared?
At the other end of the spectrum are those who have carved out profitable niches in the area of death. What’s it like to launch and grow a business in a sector that people don’t even want to acknowledge?
At this interactive panel event, hosted by Death Dinner Party founder Ruby Lohman, we’ll talk to four successful business owners about their unique experiences in the business of death and grief – and why it’s far from doom and gloom.
We’ll explore why it’s so hard to talk openly about death, and how we can get better at having these conversations – in the workplace and beyond. You’ll also have the opportunity to share your own experiences and workshop any current or past issues with expert insight from our panelists.
