The Business Book Club presents...

MAGNETiiZE with John Sanei

About the Book: MAGNETiiZE

Stop the chase.

Understand the change.

Take control of your future.

The world is caught in a never-ending chase. Without even realising it, we seem always to be hurrying after something – something we can’t even describe – a chase to nowhere.

For hundreds of years, since the Industrial Revolution in the 1700s, the chase has provided vast profit, fuelling rapid human development and great advancements in science and technology. But today, wherever we look, it appears to be reaching its sell-by date – wreaking destruction on the environment, on animals, and ultimately on human wellbeing.

As a result, we have arrived in the age of disruption – a word that has

become part of our daily business vocabulary.

We’re all aware of it, yet many of us still struggle to cope with its implications: fast-paced change. 

With a clearer understanding of how the world is changing, and with your truest self brought to the fore, MAGNETiiZE offers you the opportunity to stop chasing life and to take control of your future. Join me on the exhilarating ride to a life of purpose and a future of your own making.

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.

At our monthly meetings, 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.

We do not charge an entry fee to our events but ask that a pre-loved business or educational book is donated. These books are collected and then donated to a needy library or community in less privileged areas. We currently donate books to The Signature Library, Soweto, and are continuously looking at alternative libraries/ communities who would benefit from The Business Book Club members' donations.

Entrance Fee: A pre-loved book for donation.
