Brookline, MA – On Monday evening, September 30, 2013, WBUR journalist and CommonHealth Co-host, Carey Goldberg, and Brookline-based publishing company, Bibliomotion, hosted 200 local executives, friends and family to celebrate the release of The Joy of Strategy; A Business Plan for Life, a new book by coach, management consultant and former Senior Vice President of Massachusetts General Hospital, Allison Rimm. The event was held at the new Brookline Teen Center, a refurbished garage with industrial charm and a community mission. Bibliomotion president, Jill Friedlander, Goldberg and Rimm gave brief remarks of appreciation as they toasted the launch of Rimm’s go-to-guide for creating a strategy to achieve success and satisfaction both in and out of work.
Goldberg reflected to an attentive audience, “I loved being an early reader [of The Joy of Strategy] because I could feel the book changing me with each chapter, and I started saying to other friends, “You need this book. I can try to channel it, but really you need Allison’s book…” And now, finally, they can actually get it.” Dana Brigham, store manager and co-owner of Brookline Booksmith sold books as guests were served food prepared by caterer, Jeanie Gruber of Miss Jeanie’s Catering and Events. Attendees included John Davidow (WBUR, Executive Editor, New Media), Edward Lawrence (Partners HealthCare Board Chairman), Derrick Jackson (Boston Globe Columnist), Bonnie Michelman (Massachusetts General Hospital, Director of Police, Security and Outside Services), Caren Solomon (New England Journal of Medicine, Deputy Editor), Gina Vild (Harvard Medical School, Associate Dean Chief Communications Officer), and Erika Heilman (Bibliomotion, Cofounder and Publisher).
