London Meetup - September 8th

Greetings from sunny London!

I’ve been in the UK for a week for the release of The Personal MBA in paperback. The book is selling very well: #4 on the W.H. Smith list at launch.

It’s been a busy week with several fun events, most notably great conversations with Dr. Sionade Robinson, director of the full-time MBA program at the Cass Business School. Our discussion should air on BBC Radio 4 and the BBC World Service on Monday.

I also had the privilege of appearing as a guest on Monocle Radio, chatting with several major organizations about potential collaborations, and speaking to a group of internal Penguin employees about The Personal MBA and my upcoming book on skill acquisition.

Many thanks to Richard Lennon at Penguin for hosting me this week. It’s been a fantastic experience, and I’m looking forward to spending more time in London in the near future.

London Meetup: “The Queen of Hoxton," Saturday the 8th at 4:00pm

I’ll be hanging out at The Queen of Hoxton tomorrow, Saturday the 8th, from 4:00pm until around 5:30pm. If you live in London or the surrounding area, please drop in for a pint on me. Here’s the address:


The nearest stations are Shoreditch, High Street, Old Street, Liverpool St, and Moorgate. We’ll have our own area on the ground floor - just ask for me when you arrive.

If you plan to attend, please let me know at or via Twitter so I can save you a seat. See you soon!
