A Double Header Book Meeting:


1) The Referral Engine: Teaching Your Business to Market Itself, by John Jantsch




If referrals can help your business, this is a very useful book. Lots of meaty ideas that are actionable today. The author has developed an integrated, holistic plan to source and deliver referrals to your firm. You do not have to dig hard to get to the nuggets of gold, and there are many nuggets here.


2) slide:ology: The Art and Science of Creating Great Presentations, by Nancy Duarte




Fantastic book on how to make effective presentations. It is fun, easy to read and full of useful applications and examples. The book can easily be accused of having too much information. It provides detailed advice and requires you to think; the concepts are sound and proven. Bottom line, your presentations will improve dramatically.


As a reminder, you don’t have to read the book! The facilitator will share the main principles from the book with the group.

Don Minges will facilitate this stimulating discussion.   


During this roundtable we'll:

· share our own experiences in this area in our businesses

· share best practices from our own personal experience or from industry thought leaders

· 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!
