Join us to raise a glass to the power of knowledge and the simple pleasures in life!
Our panel of women who will be sharing about their book of choice:
Managing Director at Morningstar Investment Management SA, will share why she finds tremendous inspiration in Atomic Habits by James Clear. This transformative book delves into the power of small habits, offering practical strategies to create lasting change and achieve remarkable results. "You do not rise to the level of your goals, you fall to the level of your systems."
Head of Retail at Allan Gray, will share why she finds wisdom in bestseller Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari. This book integrates history and science to reconsider accepted narratives, connect past developments with contemporary concerns, and examine specific events within the context of larger ideas. One of his famous quotes from the book is “You could never convince a monkey to give you a banana by promising him limitless bananas after death in monkey heaven.”
Financial Planning Coach at Old Mutual Wealth, will share why she finds tremendous inspiration in The Eden Project: In Search of the Magical Other by James Hollis. This captivating business novel follows a plant manager's quest for operational excellence, uncovering game-changing principles that revolutionise productivity and success. If we are courageous enough to say, "Not this person, nor any other, can ultimately give me what I want; only I can, then we are free to celebrate a relationship for what it can give.”
We look forward to seeing you at our year-end event!
