GAVIN ESLER, Broadcaster and Author

"Bookomi has been a great partner with the IoD in our Books for Breakfast events. They have been key in introducing us to relevant and inspiring authors of significant interest to our members.

JAMES SPROULE, Chief Economist & Director of Policy, Institute of Directors

“Books for Breakfast lets you start the day by having your ideas challenged. Authors give brands and companies new ways of thinking while those brands challenge the authors to apply their thoughts in practical ways. It’s an intellectually stimulating way to get going in the morning.”

The feedback we are getting from those who attended is all extremely positive."
