    New book launch in Centennial Park to support Assistance Dogs Australia

Dog on couch

This Sunday (1 June 2014) we are hosting a book launch of “It’s A Dog’s Job (But Someone’s Got To Do It)”. Written by Steve Lennon, the book has been published in support of Assistance Dogs Australia and will support the work of this important charity organisation.

As Sydney’s favourite dog-friendly park (with 154 hectares of off-leash space to enjoy!), Centennial Parklands was the obvious location for this book launch, and we’re happy to support the author and Assistance Dogs Australia through this activity.

What’s the book about?

This is the blurb…

It’s A Dog’s Job explores the craft of consulting and building client relationships in a cheeky and irreverent way, using the metaphor of man and his best friend. In this insightful, mad-dog look at the world of management consulting, author Steve Lennon shares the tricks and traps of surviving a canine career. He shows consultants how to become a client’s best friend, and reveals how clients can keep their faithful consulting hounds delivering at peak performance.

With beautiful photography, the book also celebrates the energy and intelligence of our canine friends, who we have much to learn from.

It’s A Dog’s Job is published in association with Assistance Dogs Australia, who receive $2 for every copy sold.

Come and enjoy a morning in the Park with your dog!

Author Steve will hold the book launch event at One More Shot Pond in Centennial Park (just near the off-leash area at Musgrave Avenue). You will meet some of the most intelligent hounds in the country, share your hair-raising consulting stories with other clients and consultants, and support the amazing work of Assistance Dogs. There’ll be a little morning tea and lots of kibbles on offer.
