Reading stimulates the mind, opens the door of opportunity and helps us develop and grow –  “you will be the same person five years from now except for the people that you meet and the books that you read” (anon).

The aim of the POD Book Chats – Women in Business Book Club is to encourage reading and provide you with an opportunity to network with a diverse group of business women.

We usually meet every six weeks on a Wednesday and discuss the key concepts, thoughts and ideas that we have personally taken from the respective books.
