Book: “Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die” by Chip and Dan Heath
Learning Objective: How to get your customers to do your best marketing for you.
Discussion Topic: Improving the Chances of Worthy Ideas- making them stick
Why is it that urban legends, conspiracy theories, and public health scares can reach the other side of the world; while most businesses, teachers, and public speakers cannot get their ideas to reach a person two feet in front of them? The answer lies in Made to Stick. Chip Heath and Dan Heath’s Made to Stick shows you how to grab people’s attention in an information rich economy, get your ideas through, and make the message stick with a simple formula. Expressing your thoughts is one thing; it is another thing to convince people to remember your words.
As a reminder, you don’t have to read the book! The facilitator will share the main principles from the book with the group.
David Phillips, Faster Glass Consulting, will facilitate this stimulating discussion.

During this roundtable we'll:

· share ideas on how to improve the area within our businesses to fuel growth
Note: We are looking for people to facilitate book discussions, so please don’t hesitate to contact me if there is a book that you’re passionate about and would like to share with the group. We are currently looking to fill the 2012 calendar. The meetings take place the second Friday of every month, so pick a month that suits you for 2012!
