A big thank you to Bill Ferguson, who runs the Wealden Business Group’s own CD and book club.
During the year, all members are given (free of charge) copies of business-related books to read. At “Book Review” meetings, we discuss the book of the moment and the lessons we can all learn about growing a business.
The first selection was Duncan Ballantyne’s Anyone can do it, which stimulated a lot of discussion and emphasised that success is only achieved when a business has a clear goal and a commitment to succeed. From the perspective of the group as a whole, it also demonstrated how enjoyable and useful the process could be.
Since then, the selected books have included –
Spencer Johnson – Who moved my cheese?
Seth Godin – Small is the new Big
Tim Ferris – The 4-hour work week
All have prompted interest and discussion amongst members. This focused but friendly approach to business improvement is yet another benefit of being a member of the Wealden Business Group.
The Wealden Business Group book club was founded by Andrew Frisby.
