Event description


Tangible Ambassador's Handbook

The purpose of the Ambassador Handbook is to have a ready guide for business and civic leaders who embrace or seek to embrace the Tangible approach. The Handbook will include some leadership insights, some tools and techniques, some inspiration and some real life ‘tangible’ examples. Primarily the book will be written and edited by Raymond Sexton with input from a range of Tangible Enthusiasts, some working generally and others on specific areas of interest from around the island of Ireland and around the world.

Primarily the book will be a mechanism to capture the progress to date of over 70 leadership seminars, the knowledge gained in dealing with hundreds of business and civic initiatives at home and overseas and provide a vision for the growth of the tangible movement.

A well designed manageable in size robust handbook using picture and diagrams to enhance.

Publication would have between 200 and 300 pages. Book will retail at about €15.00 to €25.00 based on pre-orders or sponsorship.

Alternatively we could seek a commitment from 100 to 200 individuals for €100.00 resulting in a fund of €10,000 to €20,000.

My dream would be to launch the Tangible Ambassador's Handbook in New York, my favourite city and 'Da Real capital of Ireland! Venue TBA.
