Wine and Book Pairing: Poke The Box by Seth Godin with a Spider Bill Wines Barbera

Wine and Book Pairing: Poke The Box by Seth Godin with a Spider Bill Wines Barbera Wine and Book Pairing: Poke The Box by Seth Godin with a Spider Bill Wines Barbera

One of my favourite authors is Seth Godin. Seth has written many quirky books, many that even fail to communicate complete ideas, favouring, instead, fragments of thoughts with the onus on the reader to pull it all together. I particularly enjoy having read Linchpin and Purple Cow because I saw a pattern in Seth’s writing. […]

Wine and Book Pairing: The Naked CEO by Alex Malley with a Ballycroft Small Berry Mataro

Wine and Book Pairing: The Naked CEO by Alex Malley with a Ballycroft Small Berry Mataro Wine and Book Pairing: The Naked CEO by Alex Malley with a Ballycroft Small Berry Mataro by Professor Longsword

The Naked CEO is a “bare it all” tale about what makes Alex Malley tick. And it seems that hinges on being able to still be a goofy kid when being an adult. This made it a perfect wine to pair with Joe Evans’ Mataro from Ballycroft in Greenock because Joe is quite the larrikin, […]

Influence: The Persuasion Of Psychology by Dr Robert Cialdini paired with Eight At The Gate Shiraz Cabernet Influence: The Persuasion Of Psychology by Dr Robert Cialdini paired with Eight At The Gate Shiraz Cabernet

How many wines are there in the world? How many business books are there? There are countless samples of both. However, how many of these books have been paired with wines by a Professor using MBA Thinking? Only nine of them, to date. This, my friends, is scarcity. And as Dr Robert Cialdini explains in […]

Wine and Book Pairing: The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey with a Shanahans Silence Is Golden Barossa Shiraz Wine and Book Pairing: The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey with a Shanahans Silence Is Golden Barossa Shiraz

Do not waste another week, day, hour, or minute of your life, says Stephen Covey in his famous book, The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People. However, that does not mean cramming every second with activity. On the contrary, Covey points out that we need to balance our Production with our Production Capability, which is […]

What a heady week it’s been with my first appearance at an Australian Marketing Institute meeting (my confidante, Steve Davis, is a CPM and Fellow) and my first taste of seeing an infographic of an entrepreneur that attracted a male-skewed conversation in 2021. Before we get to the Wine and Book Pairing, let’s just look […]

Wine and Book Pairing: Marketing by Philip Kotler et al with a South African Pinotage Marketing by Philip Kotler et al paired with a Fat Man South African Pinotage: Wine and Book Pairing

Marketing is one of the most important topics in an MBA because, let’s face it, without Marketing the Higher Education sector would not have been able to create the MBA industry. God bless it! And the “go to” tome in this field is Marketing by Philip Kotler et al. It’s quite a gift to take […]

Wine and Book Pairing: Who Moved My Cheese? by Dr Spencer Johnson with a Grosset Riesling

Wine and Book Pairing: Who Moved My Cheese? by Dr Spencer Johnson with a Grosset Riesling Wine and Book Pairing - Who Moved My Cheese? by Dr Spencer Johnson

The late author, Dr Spencer Johnson, was famous for his One-Minute Manager book as well as his fable-style book, Who Moved My Cheese? And yet, sadly, the “light” nature of the book means that “serious” MBA students might be tempted to skim through it or dismiss its messages due to its childrens story format. Which […]

Wine and Book Pairing: A Bigger Picture by Malcolm Turbull with a Wynns Cabernet

Wine and Book Pairing: A Bigger Picture by Malcolm Turbull with a Wynns Cabernet Wine and Book Pairing - A Bigger Picture by Malcolm Turnbull

Former Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, published an expansive autobiography that some MBA students find useful for its political and cultural insights as well as its weight. I’m told it makes a superb doorstopper in share houses. When it comes to pairing this book with a wine, there are many options not least of which is […]
