The Business Book Club – Cliffhanger by Gareth Cliff
April 04th 2017
Hosted by: Skoobs Theatre of Books & The Business Book Club
The Business Book Club is a book club founded by Jacques Velleman, CEO & Founder of Centred a Business Consulting and Coaching firm. The Business Club as described on their Facebook page as “An after work event encouraging dynamic peer-to-peer discussion on thought-provoking book choices. A catalyst for building unique & powerful connections!” It was so much more than that for me. For one thing the entrance into the event was to donate a book. These books would go to The Signature Library based in Soweto which is run by Musa Mbele-Radebe which is an important initiative bringing reading back to the community. The guest this evening was the one and only Gareth Cliff who had such interesting things to say; as he usually does; but the most important one to me personally and the one I really took away was “You take offense; it isn’t give. It’s a voluntary action and you could just as well decide not to be offended.” I don’t want to say too much more because TBB is bringing to you our first filmed event! It is only a portion of the event and lots more went down and if you don’t want to miss anything then keep an eye on the Skoobs Theatre of Books Facebook page and attend an event!
I give this event 5/5 for entertainment; contribution to the South African community; contribution to the book community and contribution to me having an awesome evening.
