Virtual Book Review Club for Busy Professionals
8:00 PM — 9:30 PM EST
by Dr. Laura Sicola, founder, Vocal Impact Productions
For more information, go here.

What's the difference between a Book Club and a Book REVIEW Club? Simple! In this Book Review Club, there is NO "book of the month" that everyone is expected to read. Each month a handful people will each volunteer (in advance) to briefly review a book. By the end of the night, you'll walk away with four solid recommendations of what books to read (or NOT to read) and why. You can share a book, or just join and listen to what others share.

What kinds of books will be reviewed?
The purpose of this group is to help each other be more successful at work and in life. As such, books reviewed will be primarily PROFESSIONAL in nature: Business development, Career development, Entrepreneurship, Leadership, Communication, Workplace culture, Networking, etc. Some books will be about PERSONAL development, since you have to be a whole, healthy person to be successful in business. Some topics may include: Psychology, family dynamics, personal finance, health/nutrition/fitness, etc.

Presentation on the book

WHERE: University of Pennsylvania Dynamics of Organizations Program Brunch in Philadelphia, Pa.

I had a wonderful opportunity to present to my alumni group at the University of Pennsylvania recently. We had a large and enthusiastic crowd. The photos didn't come out well but the presentation was well received and they loved the book, Management Unleashed: Leadership Lessons From My Dog.

December 16, 2018

Book Signing
10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m
WHERE: Browseabout Books, 133 Rehoboth Ave.; Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971

Charlie is a friend's dog who came as a reinforcement for the Browseabout Book Signing after my sweet dog, Bogie, died suddenly. Charlie was an instant hit with kids and adults. Many people bought books for Christmas gifts that day but the book makes a great gift for anyone in a leadership role or anyone who likes dogs. It's not a dry management book. Everyone who's read it, says it's a fun book to read.
