The Woodward Breakfast Club will hold its first meeting Friday, August 5 from 6:30-7:30 a.m. at a Royal Oak, MI restaurant (TBD). Meetings twice a month on Friday mornings.

The kickoff meeting will discuss begin discussion of the Wright Brothers biography by David McCullough and brainstorm ideas for the group’s purposes:

  • Face to face conversation over a good book which sparks ideas and innovation
  • Help rebuild metro Detroit by encouraging entrepreneurship
  • Cross-functional collaboration across racial, ethnic, and demographic lines
  • ??? add your ideas at the meeting or respond by email

Intro/summary for each meeting session could be presented as a TED/TEC talk for video recording, then a list of questions shared for discussion: e.g., how can we apply the Wright Brothers’ innovative approach to our work, to build teamwork at work and in our community, to build bridges between people groups who are currently at odds with each other, etc. Those who can’t attend the live sessions could watch it later as a video at a lunchtime in-person TED/TEC talk.

Kickoff meeting August 5 with introduction to the book and then starting the first chapter August 19, the day before the Woodward Dream Cruise. Future meetings twice a month on Friday mornings. Similar to the Jane Austen Book Club. 

Please RSVP for a head count for the restaurant or to be added to our mailing list.
