Title: Listening to the Voices of Guinness
In 2005 the Guinness Brewery at Park Royal, West London closed after seven decades of production. The author spent the last six months of the Brewery’s life working with a photographer to record in words and picture the site before it closed. Subsequent research revealed an incredibly rich story of corporate culture change and the transformation of work and the workplace. Drawing on material from his new book, Voices of Guinness: An Oral History of the Park Royal Brewery, Oxford 2019, the author reflects on what that story tells us about work meaning, identity and organisations life in the second decade of the twenty-first century.
