A community created by MADI as a space to learn, be curious and foster a growth mindset

MADI Book Club

Library Bookshelves


The MADI Book Club is for anyone wanting to read and discuss books based on personal development, career, culture, and leadership. It is a welcoming place where like-minded individuals can come together to discuss the book of the month (virtually).

We aim to create a community of people where all opinions are welcome, we foster curiosity, and learning opportunities are encouraged!

How it works

Start by joining the MADI Book Club Facebook group, where on the first of each month we share the book of the month, and give you the links to purchase a hard or soft copy.


The MADI Book Club Facebook group is also a place where you can discuss the book freely, leading up to our virtual catch-up that will be held at 7pm during the last week of every other month. Here we can have a robust discussion about what we loved, what didn't quite land, and how we are going to carry the learnings into our lives.

And of course, feel free to bring a wine!

Current Read



The Resilience Project

by Hugh van Cuylenburg

This June/July, we chose to read "The Resilience Project: Finding Happiness Through Gratitude, Empathy, and Mindfulness."

We have heard excellent things about this book, the fabulous author & entrepreneur, and the organisation! We chose this book because mindfulness is the key to happiness and success.

This should be an inspiring read and provide tools we can implement into our own growth journeys to lead more fulfilling lives.​

Happy reading!

About the book

Hugh van Cuylenburg was a primary school teacher volunteering in northern India when he had a life-changing realisation- despite the underprivileged community the children were from, they were remarkably positive.


By contrast, back in Australia Hugh knew that all too many people found it hard to be happy, or suffered from mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety. His own little sister had been ravaged by anorexia nervosa.

How was it that young people he knew at home, who had food, shelter, friends and a loving family, struggled with their mental health, while these kids seemed so contented and resilient?

He set about finding the answer and in time came to recognise the key traits and behaviours these children possessed were gratitude, empathy and mindfulness.

In the ensuing years Hugh threw himself into studying and sharing this revelation with the world through The Resilience Project, with his playful and unorthodox presentations which both entertain and inform.


Now, with the same blend of humour, poignancy and clear-eyed insight that The Resilience Project has become renowned for, Hugh explains how we can all get the tools we need to live a happier and more fulfilling life.
