Tuesday 10th September 2019 (Fortnightly Edition)

Welcome back after what we hope was a relaxing summer break.

We started the eiClub autumn programme with a bang this week as we co-hosted a special breakfast with QDOOZ on the new National Qualities Index report. The room was packed as guests came to hear Deborah Mattinson of Britain Thinks, Caroline Macfarland of think-tank CoVi, Peter Pereira Gray of Wellcome Trust and David Carter, Founder of QDOOZ give their views on qualifications versus qualities.

For those of you who may be interested in joining the eiClub and coming to more breakfasts like this one, please contact Laura who can fill you in on our special September offer.


Autumn Look

You may have noticed that autumn also marks the launch of our new-look composite digest. To save precious inbox space we are now combining our eiNews and Views update newsletter with our Knowledge Dashboard - for those of you who aren't familiar with the Knowledge Dashboard it is the successor to the old eiDigest which after a ten year run had spawned many imitators, so we wanted to try something new. The Knowledge Dashboard is it: Six topics and six things to be across, still keeping you smart and up to speed. The Knowledge Dashboard has been piloted for some time now with our eiClub members and they love it. So it is time to share it with the wider community. Enjoy.

Book Breakfasts
We have a brand new series to share: monthly Book Breakfasts with prominent authors, which include a signed copy of their book and a lively intimate discussion to kick start your day. We kick off with the brilliant podcaster and bestselling author Viv Groskop on the 24th of this month. First-come-first-served so book today.

Social Capital Network

You may have seen our recent announcements about the launch of our Social Capital Network with Catch22 which will be led at our end by Karen Persad and Shanice Shields-Mills; Shanice also happens to be one of our original eiScholars, which was a precursor to this programme and we very much hope to build on it's success. If you'd like to find out more about the Social Capital Network programme and what you can do to support it, have a read of our press release.

Author Shortlisting

We at ei would like to extend our huge congratulations to Elif Shafak on her shortlisting for the Booker Prize. Elif has not only spoken at a number of our Names Not Numbers conferences but also at one of our eiClub Thought For the Day breakfasts only a few months ago. Even better, not just 1 NNN alumni has made it on to this year's list but 2! Margaret Atwood who spoke for us in 2014 joins Elif on the list. We're keeping our fingers crossed for them both!
