The Bookshelf has put on hundreds of different speaking events over the years that have spanned a multitude of different topics, but one subject that has been underrepresented is business. We are excited to announce the launch of our new speaker series Get Down to Business on April 29th at 7:00 pm in the eBar. The proceeds from the series will go to the Guelph Chamber of Commerce Millennium Scholarship fund, a scholarship for students entering Conestoga College who require financial assistance. The series will feature a business author who will be discussing their book for half an hour, followed by an audience-led conversation. The evening will conclude with a book signing, tasty food courtesy of the Greenroom Kitchen and great tunes by DJ Steph.
Reva Seth will kick off the series with her new book The Momshift: Women Share Their Stories of Career Success. Seth’s book explores how skills acquired through motherhood helped her tremendously in the world of business. Seth’s research includes hundreds of interviews of mothers who have careers in business.
Come on out, listen to an inspiring speaker, and have some interesting chats in a fun and inviting atmosphere! The $10.00 door fee will be donated to The Guelph Chamber of Commerce Millennium Scholarship Fund.
Tickets are available at The Bookshelf or www.guelphchamber.com.
