Jessica Martin : ‘How to be Good?’
Jessica Martin is the Canon for Education and Outreach at Ely Cathedral. Her background is literature, rather than business (she used to teach English at Trinity College in Cambridge), and her title is taken from the bestselling novel by Nick Hornby, where the hero tries to ‘be good’ – and it comes close to wrecking all his relationships!
She will think about what ‘good’ could mean in a professional context: about policies of generous engagement in professional relationships, their limits and their potential effects.
She will be running a ‘How to be Good’ discussion forum at the Cathedral in the autumn, focusing on different professions.
