It’s actually a private book launch party for CTRL ALT Delete.
On June 17th, 2013, Google in New York City will be hosting the official book launch for my second business book, CTRL ALT Delete. This is a very private and intimate event for the industry and media (sponsored by Google and my publisher, Grand Central Publishing – Hachette Book Group) and it is by invitation only. The usual fare for these events is come in, mingle, have some cocktails, listen to the author wax poetic about their latest and disperse. In thinking about doing something different, unique and fun, I thought it might be more lively (and interesting) to have a fireside conversation about what’s in the book (and what’s not) with one of the people I admire most in this industry, Seth Godin (author of amazing books like The Icarus Deception, Linchpin, The Dip, Purple Cow, and on… and on). Seth graciously agreed to take part.
A special evening.
There will be some other goodies and surprises as well. In speaking with Google, they suggested that we invite 10 loyal Six Pixels of Separation community members/friends to come along (and a bring a guest). So, here’s what we’re going to do to give these ten slots away: in the comments below, answer this question: what company do you think has made a great reboot and why? We’ll comb through these comments and choose 10 winners who will be given a pair of tickets to attend this book launch event in NYC.
The fine print:
- Entries will be accepted up until 11:00 pm eastern on Wednesday, June 12th, 2012.
- Winners will be notified via email.
- Winners are entitled to bring one guest.
- Winners must cover all travel, accommodations, etc… The only thing you are winning is a pass for two to the event.
So… take a shot!
Word is that the Authors@Google team will be on hand to film the event, but regardless this is going to be all new content and a fascinating conversation about the state of business, marketing and innovation. The event will take place from 5-7 pm and winners will be given the full details when they are notified. We’re hoping to make this a special evening to launch CTRL ALT Delete.
Over to you…
