Book Detailing Leadership Skills for Business, Life and Community Launched in Brisbane

Brisbane author Alison Y Vidotto is launching her business, life and community handbook, 22 Leadership Fundamentals, at Mary Ryan's Milton next week.

From living independently at 16, working full time and going to night school, to being a mother of six, successful businesswoman with an MBA and the founder and director of international charity ACCV, supporting more than 200 families living in poverty in Vietnam, Alison is a true leader.

In 22 Leadership Fundamentals: The Door to Success Says Push! Alison shares the leadership skills she developed to raise a close family, be a strong community member, build a successful business and run an international charity. Real life stories are woven throughout the book to demonstrate the importance of leadership in all aspects of life.

Alison will share how she has continued to push the right doors at the launch event at Mary Ryan's Milton on Thursday, June 12, at 6.15pm. This free event includes sparkling wine and refreshments.

"My focus and determination led to the leadership skills I needed to raise a my family, build a business from scratch and develop an English language and IT program for young blind students so they could escape a future with no potential," Alison said.

"The road I've travelled taught me what I needed to become a strong leader, the importance of stepping up and the determination to never give up. It's never too late to be the leader you were born to be!" she added.

22 Leadership Fundamentals: The Door to Success Says Push! discusses leadership principles for life, business and the wider community and will show readers how to:

• Obtain clarity about their purpose and vision
• Adapt and take advantage of change and turmoil
• Discover how and when to make the tough calls without guilt
• Be a conscious, authentic leader
• Step up, take responsibility and always be accountable.

Alison's tips have already struck a chord with ebook readers like Cecilia Clark, who said, "This woman walks the walk and talks the talk. She does not pull back from the hard decisions nor from ownership of the responsibility for her own actions. She has built her own success on the foundations of the lessons she has learned in life and shares these in a very readable manner."

Now print book readers have the chance to meet Brisbane local Alison and hear her story at the first book launch.
