Leadership Network book club 书友会 Shū Yǒu Huì


The Leadership Network is piloting an online book club 书友会 Shū Yǒu Huì for members of the network. This Chinese phrase translates to ‘read books to make friends’ and captures the spirit of what we are looking to achieve.

The purpose of 书友会 Shū Yǒu Huì is to: 

  • build networks between members, especially those offshore
  • grow the Asia knowledge of the network.

About the opportunity

The format will be very simple. The Foundation will select the first Asia-focused book and those interested will get together via zoom for a 90 minute/two-hour session to discuss our thoughts and feelings after reading it.

At the end of the zoom chat, the rōpū will choose the next Asia-focused book, ensuring we mix up the geographic and sectoral focus. The Zoom meeting will be held at a time that allowed members based in Asia and Australia to participate.

We will also set up a book club whatsapp group where people can informally discuss the book in between hui.
