Episode 150 – The Sesquicentennial Best Bits

Episode 150 - The Sesquicentennial Best BitsThere aren’t many opportunities to slip the word ‘sesquicentennial’ into conversation, so make the most of this one by recommending it, casual-like, to all your friends. A few of my favourite moments from the last few Extraordinary Business Book Club episodes, with the focus today on serendipity. (There’s another great word right there...)

  • James Kelley on pivoting your book idea
  • Alexandra Levit on spotting the opportunities in what’s said
  • Christine Armstrong on spotting the opportunities in what’s NOT said
  • Whitney Johnson on how opportunities – and books – evolve
  • Graham Allcott on spotting the opportunities to turn a book into a brand
  • Karen Morley on capturing everyday insights
  • Mac Macartney on making your own luck
  • Sean Pillot de Chenecey on knowing when to close the opportunity window and ship.
