The  LBDC  is delighted to announce that it will be returning to New York on Wednesday June 18, 2014.

We have an exclusive guest speaker breakfast event planned for the LBDC  (New York) which will be hosted at the offices of Clifford Chance (the global law firm).

Our Guest Speaker will be DAVID ZWEIG author of the non-fiction book Invisibles: The Power of Anonymous Work in an Age of Relentless Self-Promotion.

DAVID’s book, INVISIBLES, was named a Top Business Book to Read in 2014 by Adam Grant, Wharton professor and bestselling author of Give and Take.

The premise of “Invisibles” was also the subject of a TED Talk which DAVID Zweig gave recently to Columbia University (TedxColumbiaSIPA, Thursday 8 May 2014).

In this special TALK, our Guest Speaker DAVID ZWEIG will cover the traits that Invisibles share, and through anecdotes about Invisible professionals, and scholarly support, will show how these traits correlate with both success and satisfaction.
