A week-long residency in Soho, exploring modern business and what it means to enjoy a life well lived.
Following the success of our first House of Killik in Mayfair, this event returned in January when we took up residency at 15 Bateman Street, Soho, for a week long series of inspiring conversations and workshops.
From discussions about modern business and the challenges of ever-evolving marketplaces with founders and business leaders, to urban gardening workshops and wellness sessions; we explored a wide range of topics throughout the week, inspiring our guests to identify the life they want to lead. #mylifewelllived
