Business Book Club
We recently launched our Business Book Club in collaboration with Our Bookshop Tring. Our Bookshop Tring opened on Tring’s High Street not long before the Pandemic began, when many other bookshops were going out of business. We’ve been blown away by their positive influence on our community and subsequent well-deserved success. Ben Moorhouse, the founder, is a local entrepreneur with a mission to make Tring a destination. Not only does he run the bookshop and its many book-related events, but he also organises the Book Festival, comedy festival and a retro cinema on wheels.
The Business Book Club is open to anyone who is interested in the different topics of the books we explore. At each book club we will interview the author and you will have the chance to ask them questions as well as discuss the key points addressed within the book. To begin with, they will all be held virtually in the evening during the week. We will evolve the book club over time based on your feedback.
Each book club is a fantastic opportunity for self-development and to discover interesting new books, which may also be suitable for others in your organisation. The format will be relaxed and informal and it's fine just to tune in and listen if you’d prefer not to ask any questions.
“We wanted to launch a book club as we have a passion for books. We believe books as part of hampers make fantastic gifts. They are a great way to communicate and bring to life key strategic messages, not to mention their wellbeing benefits. By working with Our Book Shop Tring we get to benefit from Ben’s incredible network in the industry to bring to you the most amazing authors, whilst supporting another local business.”
The Business Book Club started with a conversation with Simon Alexander Ong, author of the top seller Energize. We met Simon through a Facebook group and have been captivated by his inspiring and practical techniques on achieving more than you ever thought possible by recharging your energy.
In Energize, Life Coach Simon Ong introduces you to the art and science of energy management. Revealing how your physical, mental and relational energy affect your ability to think creatively and make progress towards your goals, Ong will teach you how to renew, recharge and nurture yourself so that you feel refreshed and alive rather than drained at the end of your day. Energize will teach you how to make the most out of every single moment and achieve more than you ever thought possible.
Gift Hampers Inspired By Books
Our Great British Outdoors gift hampers are built around the inspiring book Microadventures by Alistair Humphreys. Microadventures is a practical guide filled with ideas for an adventure that's close to home, cheap, simple, short and 100% guaranteed to refresh your life.
Atomic Habits by the amazing James Clear remains a firm favourite of ours. Not only is it an enjoyable read with insightful stories to demonstrate the key points in the book, but it's highly actionable, with key messages beneficial for any business.
This delightful book, written by Niki Brantmark, is a taste of the philosophy behind Lagom, the Sweedish art of living a balanced and happy life. The book includes inspirational and fun ideas for how to include some of the principles in our daily lives.
