BOOK CLUB

You asked, and I created it! I am delighted to introduce

the BWP Connect Book Club. Here’s how it works:

ONE

Every three months, I will select a book to satisfy a BWP Connect Growth 2021 goal.

TWO

Whenever possible, members will get a discount on book orders from our author and bookstore partners.

THREE

We’ll read along together, with page goals, discussion questions, and food for thought provided by the book’s discussion leader from the BWP Connect community.

FOUR

Then, throughout the reading, we’ll have live chats on Zoom about the book! And not to worry — even if some members can’t make the live discussion, we’ll post the video and the audio afterward, alongside a post to wrap it all up.

Our second book selection is:

"Your Next Five Moves: Master the Art of Business Strategy"
