Presenting…Capturean Author Talk featuring Bruce Rosenstein, author of Create Your Future the Peter Drucker Way.

Join Scranton native Bruce Rosenstein, Managing Editor of Leader to Leader and author of Create Your Future the Peter Drucker Way and Living in More Than One World: How Peter Drucker’s Wisdom Can Inspire and Transform Your Life, for his presentation about how the life and work of Drucker, “the father of modern management,” can be the perfect guide to a better tomorrow.

Drucker, who died at 95 in 2005, was no stranger to the Scranton area. He delivered the commencement address at the University of Scranton on May 31, 1964.

Based on Bruce’s interviews with and extensive research on Drucker, he will discuss how to:

  • Develop a forward-focused mindset in the here-and-now
  • Create the future systematically yet simply as part of your day-to-day work and life
  • Discover and profit from “the future that has already happened”
  • Become your own successor: keep yourself in demand and in control of your destiny
  • Begin and build your Create the Future Notebook and Total Life List

Your future begins today. Peter Drucker’s time-tested principles can provide the compass and roadmap to guide you, no matter where you are in your life’s journey.

Copies of both of Bruce’s books will be on sale, and there will be a book signing after his presentation.
