New Book (Mid-Year)
We are currently writing an easy to read book on “Starting and Managing a business”. It is primarily designed to provide a guide or road-map for entrepreneurs but initial reviewers say its content is of interest to all leaders and aspiring leaders and managers. We have not yet decided the Title “Fur coat and no Knickers” was suggested as the primary author named one type of entrepreneur, however maybe we will use a more professional title but the above suggestion is a little taster of the style which is very pragmatic, informative and uses humour to help you along through the read.
