In the seventeenth century Rene Descartes wrote that, “The reading of all good books is like a conversation with the finest minds of past centuries”. The Executive Book Club has been created to allow forward-thinking business executives to enjoy profound conversations with the finest business, scientific and creative minds of both past and present, curated and facilitated by Simon Robinson, a British business-thinker and consultant. It will provide an exclusive and unprecedented opportunity to explore some of the most potent books relating to business, leadership, innovation and creativity, developing advanced thinking, critical analysis and creativity from an international perspective.
The Executive Book Club will meet six times a year, with each meeting focusing on one book from a list curated by Simon Robinson. All books will be in English, and will include both best-selling classics as well as less-well known books which provide important insights and which have the ability to develop and transform the mode of thinking.
The discussions will provide an opportunity to develop confidence in using advanced English business vocabulary and concepts and developing cross-cultural conversational skills in a safe environment.
During each meeting the club will discuss one specific book. The book will be introduced by Simon, who will provide background on the author and the context in which the book was written. Simon will read key passages for discussion, providing his own reading and interpretation. The exploration of the book will be in the form of constructive dialogue, where members discuss their own reactions and insights from the book, allowing the book to be critiqued as a profound level. Simon will also be providing suggested further readings around the topic, as well as providing practical examples of how the thinking from the book has been applied in leadership and innovation contexts.
