New discussion group in Waterstone’s

ast-talks-compressed1I was delighted with the response to the launch of our new discussion group in September. This is a joint venture with the Macclesfield (Cheshire) branch of Waterstone’s, who have been very supportive of the 7 Pillars book. The group is for anyone interested in personal development, business strategy or simply those who want to explore their capabilities.

Every six weeks we’ll meet in store for a facilitated discussion on topics ranging from effective networking to public speaking and leadership skills. The inaugural meeting attracted approximately 20 people, a variety of business owners, marketeers and members of the public who seemed to thoroughly enjoy a vibrant and positive session. Our first topic was how to build and successfully nurture a network of contacts, a core requirement for anyone intent on succeeding in business.


Vicky Greenhalgh of PEM Ltd described the event as “brilliant” and “thoroughly enjoyable” and procurement consultant Andrew Christophers called it, “a very informative evening.” The next meeting is on Mon 19th Oct starting 6pm and covers Leadership & Motivation. Anyone interested in the Waterstone’s Discussion Group should contact Lindsey Russell at Waterstone’s Macclesfield on 01625 424212 or
