Karoshi (Japanese for death by overwork). Is work killing you? Does your boss hate you? You are not alone. In Karoshi, comedian (and tired worker) Mel Byron shows the many different ways in which work is killing us. Long hours, managers from hell, dysfunctional colleagues, they are all to blame. Yes, it's not you, it is them. In the time it takes you to eat lunch and update your CV (don't let the boss catch you), Mel shows, with anecdotes, fascinating facts and a flip chart, why this is happening and what we can do about it.
