The Business Book Club is coming to Cape Town!

About the Author: Richard Mulholland

Richard kicked off his career as a Rock ‘n’ Roll roadie, operating lights for bands such as Iron Maiden, Def Leppard and Cliff Richard.

From there he started South Africa’s largest presentation firm, Missing Link, and co-founded Innovation Lab, 21Tanks and digital agency Firing Squad.

Richard is a highly regarded speaker. When not addressing many of South Africa’s top corporations, he has guest lectured on courses for the Cape’s Graduate School of Business (GSB), and the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS). He also writes frequent columns for many magazines including Longevity and Destiny Man.

Once a week, Rich pops into the CliffCentral studio, for his Reality Check session with Gareth Cliff, to help them solve an annoying problem, cut through the cr*p and make sense of the nonsense.

About the Book: Legacide

Why Legacy thinking is the silent killer of innovation!

Innovation is not about changing your product, it’s about changing your mindset. It’s not about doing something new, it’s about stopping doing something old. Basically, this entire book rehashes these two lines in as many ways as ground-breaking (if you dropped him off a high platform wearing heavy shoes) business thinker Richard Mulholland was able to do in around 120 pages. That said, changing the legacy mindset is not easy, but hot-damn, it’s worthwhile. Legacide hopes to do just that.

About The Business Book Club

The Business Book Club was founded with the purpose to share knowledge in a business context. Knowledge is the start of change, an inevitable process of business (and life), and one can obtain it through various means. Books are our favourite way and what better than to have a conversation with the author. Sharing knowledge through questions and answers helps us understand how each of us can affect change in a positive way.

The Business Book Club meets monthly where we invite an author to showcase their book and share their knowledge. Through conversations with the author, we grow our leadership capability by understanding how we can change our business environments.

Entrance Fee: A pre-loved business book for donation.
