Jurriaan Kamer, organization designer and partner at The Ready is coming to New York City for the USA book launch of Formula X “How to reach extreme acceleration in your organization”.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Formula X is a business fable about speed, leadership and organizational change. Many organizations struggle to adapt to our fundamentally faster world. For companies and professionals, it often feels like they have to make an ultimate choice: quality or speed. But speed does not have to result in bad work―and Formula 1 motor racing proves this.

Japan’s Alcohol Traditions: Sake, Shochu, Whisky and More

March 10, 2020

The scope of alcoholic beverages in Japan encompasses traditional drinks like sake, as well as Japanese interpretations of historically Western beverages. Japanese whisky, whose early fans included such luminaries as Jean-Paul Sartre and Ian Fleming, is today acclaimed as some of the world’s best. In this day and age, it isn’t even necessary to travel to Japan to enjoy some of the country’s finest alcohol; much of it can be found right here in New York. At this talk, Stephen Lyman, co-author of The Complete Guide to Japanese Drinks: Sake, Shochu, Japanese Whisky, Beer, Wine, Cocktails and Other Beverages, will be your personal guide to Japan’s alcohol traditions.

Followed by a book sale and signing accompanied by a sampling of Japanese drinks.
Must be 21 years of age, or older.
