About this Event

At EBBC Leuven, our goal is to give people who are serious about their career, personal life and self-development a platform to activate what they read and exchange thoughts with other driven people.

We look forward to seeing you at the monthly interactive EBBC (Entrepreneurial Business Book Club) session in Leuven.

Our next session is centered around "Steve Jobs, the exclusive biography" by Walter Isaacson. Expect a mindblowing, interesting, thought-provoking and practical session!

We activate (y)our Knowledge!

About the book:

Based on more than forty interviews with Steve Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than 100 family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing. Isaacson’s portrait touched millions of readers. At a time when America is seeking ways to sustain its innovative edge, Jobs stands as the ultimate icon of inventiveness and applied imagination. He knew that the best way to create value in the twenty-first century was to connect creativity with technology. He built a company where leaps of the imagination were combined with remarkable feats of engineering. Although Jobs cooperated with the author, he asked for no control over what was written. He put nothing off-limits. He encouraged the people he knew to speak honestly. He himself spoke candidly about the people he worked with and competed against. His friends, foes, and colleagues offer an unvarnished view of the passions, perfectionism, obsessions, artistry, devilry, and compulsion for control that shaped his approach to business and the innovative products that resulted. His tale is instructive and cautionary, filled with lessons about innovation, character, leadership, and values.

We will discuss this great journey with one of our members, Lara! Excited to meet her and listen to what we can learn from Steve’s life? Buy your free tickets now!

We encourage you to read the book (and/or a summary, youtube videos, podcasts, ...) beforehand. While it is not a requirement, it does make the sessions more interesting and valuable for you as well as the others.

Due to the COVID crisis this is now an ONLINE EVENT! Looking forward meeting you in the flesh, next edition!
