Gamechangers Bookclub

Online via Zoom

Open your mind to new ways of being in business. Join the conversation to make new connections, share insights and recommended reads.

A Power Hour discussion each month focused on a book of our choice. You are invited to read (or listen to an audio version of) the selected title in advance and join the conversation.

After a short introduction we will open up a facilitated discussion to stimulate your thinking about the big ideas in the book. You will be invited to share your thoughts on how the concepts could apply to your own business before having the opportunity to vote on a title for the next month.

This month’s book choice is CORPORATE REBELS: MAKE WORK MORE FUN.

Come prepared to talk about:

– What you liked and didn’t like about the book

– Which points resonated with your own personal experience

– What you will take away from reading it and what actions you will take as a result

50% of your ticket price will be donated to give books to schools libraries in Bombay, India.
