Jim Collins decided to create a re-release of Beyond Entrepreneurship - the leadership staple he and Bill Lazier published nearly 30 years ago - for three reasons. Firstly, he is still fiercely passionate about entrepreneurs and the leaders of small businesses. Like hgkc, these are the people he most wants to reach. Secondly, he has not stood still, has gleaned decades of new research about people decisions, leadership, vision, strategy - and luck! And thirdly, BE 2.0 honours the person he describes as the greatest mentor in his life, Bill Lazier, who passed away in 2004.

Reed Hastings, co-founder of Netflix, says that Beyond Entrepreneurship '...transformed my leadership style more than any other book or person.' 

Join us at The Book Club to discover what made this book the enduring classic that it has become, and to explore 'The Map' - the framework that Collins provides for building a company that delivers superior results, makes a distinctive impact, and achieves enduring success. that pulls together.

In a radical departure from previous Book Clubs, this time registration is free via our LinkedIn Event listing, but you have to buy the book - and read it - before you can come! Oh - and you should bring your own tea and cake too....
