‘Malcolm Gladwell is a global phenomenon, one of the most brilliant and influential writers of his generation.’ The Observer
If you haven’t already been lucky enough to come across Malcolm Gladwell, I should explain why this is such exciting news: Malcolm Gladwell is the author of the international bestsellers Blink, The Tipping Point and Outliers, books which have entertained, engaged, and profoundly changed the way millions of us think about the world.
The Observer describes him as “the most influential thinker of the ipod generation”. Normally paid huge sums to speak at conferences for corporations like Google, on 24 June he is coming to Liverpool! He himself has this to say:
“Just so we’re clear, there will be no tap-dancing, mime, or impersonations of pop stars during my shows. It will just be me, giving you what I hope to be some of the most interesting bits from Outliers. I’d be delighted if you could come.”
Now you have a unique opportunity to see him in action!
Gladwell brings you his extraordinary alchemy of story-telling and intuitive thinking. It’s time to forget conventional notions of how society works and get ready for a brand new way of seeing the world.
Outliers is his new book, and this time his subject is successful people. He argues that the real secrets of success can be found in people’s life stories – the culture they grow up in, the twists of fate, and the way they spend their time. He has a very liberating an inspiring message.
Tickets are £16 and £21. For more information or to purchase tickets simply click here or call the Box Office direct on 0151 709 3789.
When he visited London last November he sold-out the huge Lyceum Theatre twice over and had the kind of response usually reserved for rock-stars or Hollywood icons:
‘The writer as rock star? Well, why not? . Malco-mania is about to break out!’ Daily Telegraph
Even without the dancing, in person, Malcolm is every bit as engaging and charismatic as you would hope. He speaks as well as he writes.
‘Inspiring, revelatory … He makes you feel like you’re the genius, rather than he’s a genius’ The Times
