In my first day as a junior advisor, I was told to interview a CEO whose business had just failed. He lost everything. He lost his wife, all his money, his business and his house. All he was left with was a chair and a mattress (Dutch law).
It made a huge impression. Since then I have failed myself a few times, and I know the pain involved. I have worked with hundreds of companies. I have seen many management teams struggle with keeping their companies alive.
I am also a serious book nerd. Always have been since I learned how to read. I love books. I got a lot out of them. Books like “Lord of the rings”, “Thriving on chaos”, “Funky Business”, “33 strategies of war” or “Code of the Extraordinary Mind” changed me forever. Books made me a better person and a better business man. I want to share that experience.
Why not learn from the best? The thinkers, the futurists, the experts, the innovators, the specialists, the CEOs who have been there and bought the T-shirt.
Why reinventing the wheel? Everything an organisation faces has been faced before. Why not learn from others?
As things go faster, you have two options. Slow down or look further ahead. Bookbuzz does both.
Using the best business thinkers to look ahead combined with the slow flow of the two oldest media in the world. The spoken word and the book. Facilitated reflection. Merging the learning from business books with the collective wisdom of the organisation.
Helping to avoid failure, make CEOs and managers better at what they do and help create better businesses.
