Books that Inspire @ Bahen Centre for Information Technology, BA1210
Nov 28 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Do you know what executives do 60 times more than the typical worker? They read about 60 books a year, while a typical worker only reads one. Don’t have time to read? The Engineering Alumni Mentorship Program invites you to attend Books that Inspire, where you’ll get three books worth of content in an hour. We will be summarizing books from a wide range of subjects, from business to philosophy, followed by a Q&A. Mentors and mentees will also have a chance to connect and discuss each book that’s presented.

Would you like to present one of your favourite books? Please use this form to tell us what you would like to discuss. Each presentation is approxiately 10-15 minutes, followed by another 10-15 minutes of questions from the audience.

Cities across North America are turning to green infrastructure to meet the increasing infrastructure demands caused by population growth, urbanization and climate change.
