WBII Business Book Club

Do you enjoy learning about business, developing yourself and exchanging ideas and inspiration with other interesting and motivated women? Or have you maybe been wanting to read more books but don’t get around to it or lack inspiration? Then this book club could be for you!

Sometimes we all read different books and come together to share our selections – what we liked, key takeaways and lessons we’d like to implement, and others can ask questions. In this way, we are inspired by others’ choices and experience a glorious diversity of books in one meeting. This has become a popular format for our meetings.

Other times, we vote on the moderator’s choice of three books and the meeting moderator is rotating.

Meetings are structured so we can all get the most out of them, but don’t worry, there is time for some fun and socialising too!

Join us!
