At the heart of northern business since 1882

NorSCA Book Club – a different approach to networking

Date: 22 October 2014 16:30 for 17:00 - 18:00

Type: Career and Personal Development, Social and Networking

Organiser: Tyne and Wear

A series of interludes with tea and cake at which we will consider the lessons for life and work from contemporary polemic books. The unusual element to this book club is that you do not have to read the book beforehand that will have been done for you! But please feel free to read and enjoy the books in advance if you wish.

Each interactive session will explore one major book. A brief synopsis will be offered and then the major concepts and ideas will be discussed.

Sane New World by Ruby Wax 

Ruby Wax is now known as the poster girl for depression. Her aim now is to de-stigmatise mental illness. Her book is based on the premise that our brains were not built for 21st Century living.

It contains witty anecdotes and practical examples on how to tame the mind.

This is a book for us all and has a new approach on how to bring calm and peace of mind into our hectic 21st Century lives.
