Dr Monique Beedles - Book Club for Business

Sun, 07 Feb 2010 10:09:23 +0000

(image)
So many books, so little time… There’s such a bewildering array of business books out there, you don’t know where to start. You have a pile of ‘to-read’ books cluttering up your office and never have time to read them. Your work life is so busy that you rarely have time to read a newspaper, let alone a business book. You know learning and keeping up to date is important, but you also need to spend time networking and making new business contacts. You read business books but you don’t have anyone to discuss them with, to share ideas and work out practical ways to apply what you’ve learned. You love to read but can’t remember the last time you finished a book. If these situations sound familiar, then the Teak Yew Business Book Workshops are for you. Run by Dr Monique Beedles, an experienced business consultant and adviser, the Teak Yew Business Book Workshops offer an opportunity for in-depth facilitated discussion of specially chosen business books. As a business owner or manager, each book offers you both theoretical insights and practical applications of new ideas for your business. Each month Monique prepares detailed reading notes, which assist you to identify the key concepts from the book and reflect on how the ideas presented could be applied to your own situation. Monique also provides a range of related resources if you’d like to investigate topics in more detail. Participants read the book and the reading notes prior to coming along to the workshop. Details of how to obtain a 15% discount on the book's recommended retail price from Management Books are provided after registration. The 2 hour workshop provides an opportunity to meet with like-minded business people who are keen to explore ideas and engage in lively discussion. Monique’s extensive facilitation and consulting experience ensures that the workshop has a practical focus and that you will come away with actions you can implement. Workshop includes: Reading notes prepared by Dr Monique Beedles & emailed to you on registration 2 hours facilitated discussion on the book of the month Access to related resources Networking with like-minded business people An opportunity to explore ideas in a lively environment Practical learning that you can apply in your business life Delicious refreshments 15% discount on the recommended retail price of the book of the month when ordering from Management Books (details on registration) This session's book: Book: 'Small Giants' Author: Bo Burlingham

It was the annual Show in Brisbane, 10 days of fairy floss, stomach churning rides, best cake exhibits...and the chooks! (chickens) In my best Ekka tradition (Exhibiton) I made my last report at the chooks.

Learning to sing

Tue, 09 May 2006 03:43:56 +0000

The Body Health and Harmony show was in town for the weekend, lots of hippy and New Age things to see and do, and we thought it would be fun for me to 'learn to sing' with a voice teacher. Listen to the 'before and after' lesson, good fun! This is one of my favorite broadcasts, hope you also enjoy it.

Tandum Parachute Jump at 10,000 ft

Wed, 03 May 2006 02:09:27 +0000

(image)
I had to do an interview for a fundraiser run by the Heart Foundation. Week after week it was delayed, due to weather, time and committments etc. Finally, we were to jump! By then Peter said not to do it, but how could I back out? It was a very windy day, and the plane crew were anxious to do it quickly, so the brief was very short and sweet. HEAD BACK! CROSS ARMS. KNEES TOGETHER! And we were off, but by then, the radio team had left for lunch, taking a national feed from Sydney, so I had to speak to an empty studio. The harness straps under my arm burst my blood vessels, and I was bruised for weeks afterwards, but what fun! Listen now....

Searching for Barry Manilow

Wed, 03 May 2006 01:18:30 +0000

Barry Manilow was in town, but had spat the dummy and refused all interviews. My radio challenge was to find him, and quick! Failing that it's just not that easy to front perfect strangers and entice them to sing, either.

Swimming with Sharks

Tue, 02 May 2006 23:42:09 +0000

(image)
This is my radio report of the time I swam with sharks, and even patted one underwater! Peter used to get perverse pleasure from sending me to scary, dangerous places. Many mornings I would have to remind myself that I was a mother of two beautiful, small children, and should I really be doing this? But I loved it too, each day bringing me some new discovery, some privilege that no-one else could see/touch/experience. One of these things, was to swim with the sharks, early in the morning. I planned my revenge....listen here.
