“VC+ Signals Webinar”

SPECIAL EVENT: A Unique Opportunity to Hear About our Next Book

We will be officially publishing our second ever book, “Signals” this month. While the book was being made, VC+ members got behind the scenes access to the creation process, including a first look at some of the content, as it was completed.

Now it’s time to explore the finished product. In this exclusive webinar, members will hear from Founder, Editor in Chief and Author of “Signals”, Jeff Desjardins, as well as Managing Editor, Nick Routley, as they unpack and discuss the key themes in the book and answer any questions.

All attendees will receive a free digital copy of “Signals” ahead of the event, to digest all 27 signals beforehand.

Can’t join us live? We’ll be sending the webinar recording to all VC+ members, along with details on how to access a free digital copy of the book.

Still want to order a hard copy of “Signals”? Then you can do that here.

Event date: November 16 (Get VC+ to access)

“The Sketchbook”

SPECIAL DISPATCH: Exploring New Concepts and Thought Exercises in a Visual Format

In this month’s Sketchbook feature, we’ll be taking a specific example of misleading information – one that was shared widely over social media platforms – and visually breaking it down in an effort to separate truth from fiction.
