Over the last few months I have often been asked whether people can have copies of my talks or whether they are recorded.
I don’t give out copies. For two reasons. First, I want to engage in the live Q&A myself. Secondly, I don’t wish my personal views to be presented, and potentially distorted or misrepresented, by other speakers.
I also don’t tend to publish recordings, although I am giving further thought to this.
What I have decided to do is to turn many of my talks into a book.
The talks in question will be those on the theme of “The future of Freemasonry.” The book will concentrate on how we can manage and develop our Lodges to make them attractive, relevant and welcoming to the 21st century working man while perpetuating the timeless purpose and meaning of Freemasonry. It will be aimed at members of working Lodges and will offer practical means to develop a Lodge, as well as the rationale for doing so.
The book will build on my experience as a Secretary, Mentor and developer of the Members’ Pathway. It will also, build on my experience of change within The Scouts and on my professional experience as a leadership and change coach, consultant and facilitator.
I will keep you updated on news of my book. So far I have completed the first draft of Chapter 1, which is based on the 7-habits of highly successful Lodges.
In the meantime, I do hope to see you on one of my talks. If you want to host one yourself, please do get in touch here.
I am looking forward to delivering four talks in the next week; for a Lodge in London, for the Mark Province of Devonshire, for the Corinthian Club in West Lancashire and, on Saturday, as part of an online workshop for the Scout Association’s virtual Gilwell Reunion.
Have a great week,
Onwards and upwards!
