Pour a glass of sherry, munch on a mince pie, and put your feet up with a few of my absolute favourite moments EVER from the Extraordinary Business Book Club.
I hope you enjoy this (not-very) seasonal selection box as much as I did. And whatever you're doing and whoever you're doing it with, have a very happy Christmas Day.

Sadly, the thing that can happen with live things happened, and the audio file was lost. So today's episode is a rerun of that interview. In it Lyn and Donna talk about the inspiration for Trusted, how they wrote together so effectively, and how their book is working for their business.
And as promised, here are some pictures from the launch, beginning (and indeed ending) with that fabulous T-spot cocktail:
Raj Nair hasn't written a business book (yet).

Another satisfying helping of the choicest morsels of practical inspiration served up by recent guests. Listen to:
