The 31 Practices

Every company has its own values and brand which it wants its customers and clients to engage with and develop loyalty to.

At the same time, research shows that 70% of customers’ brand perception is determined by their experience with the company’s employees. Moreover, 41% of customers are loyal because of good employee attitude.

This book shows how companies can translate their values and brand into the daily practices and behaviour of their employees, especially those who must deal directly with customers. Drawing its principles from psychology, sociology, philosophy, neuroscience and leadership, the 31 Practices method has been successfully adopted by large and small companies around the world, and has been responsible for significantly enhancing customer satisfaction and loyalty.

The Commando Way

The story of the genius behind the inditex gruop

Who is best equipped to meet the challenges of an unstable and uncertain world? Who better than a commando? When you’re trained as a commando you’re trained to expect the unexpected.

How to Win a War

What can WWII teach us?

Is it possible to see Hitler as an efficient manager? What would today’s business schools have to say about Churchill’s management style? What was going though the minds of leaders when they took decisions that led to thousands of deaths? How did they manage the resultant stress? What strategies were adopted to win battles and campaigns?

This book is a history of WWII seen from a completely different perspective – that of the businessperson. During 1939-45, “managers” of a different kind were facing immense challenges – an unprecedented crisis, struggle for world markets, new technologies being used on a mass scale. How they coped and succeeded during this period offers unique and valuable lessons for today’s business managers and executives. In doing so, the author analyses WWII’s most famous campaigns, including Barbarossa, Stalingrad, D-Day and Pearl Harbour. Author: Ignacio Gonzalez-Posasa

The Prisoner and the Penguin

The power of a good story has long been recognised.

It seems that, as a race, we humans love a good story. But stories aren’t just for pure enjoyment - they have long been a powerful tool for teaching.This book is an alternative to the traditional marketing handbook. Rather than a textbook, it is an enjoyable “story-book” that brings to life some of the key principles of marketing in an easy-to-read, accessible form. Some of these stories are quite remarkable and almost unbelievable; but all are true and remind marketers and businesspeople that the best marketing is something which people tell others about and retell over many years.

The Art of Shopping

How we shop and why we buy
Whether you love it, hate it, or just get on with it, everybody is a shopper. From the poorest African townships to the smartest retail spaces in the world, shopping is an activity that constantly consumes vast amounts of our time, money and attention. It simultaneously drives commerce and fills our fridges. The things we buy contribute to our own personal sense of identity, sustaining us both physically and emotionally. Yet how much do we really understand about shopping? More to the point, how well do retailers and manufacturers understand the way we shop? In this highly readable, ground-breaking book Siemon Scamell-Katz, one of the world's leading analysts of shopper behaviour, provides a surprising look at shopper behaviour. Drawing on 20 years of pioneering research (from filming shoppers in-store to brain scanning), the author explains how people around the world really shop. The Art of Shopping explores what we actually do rather than what we think we do, how we really choose and make decisions to buy, and what really works for brands trying to persuade us to buy. The result is a book that will change the way retailers sell and people shop, forever. Author:  Siemon Scamell-Katz

Made With

The emerging alternatives to Western brands: From Istanbul to Indonesia

This book charts the emergence of a vibrant new type of brand from the emerging markets. This new type of brand is Made With – more concerned with design, community and fusion – rather than the classic Western brand that is “Made by” (by Coco Chanel or Steve Jobs) based upon the cult of the ego, icon, author and personality. Through following the inside story of these brands, the reader gets an insightful access into these newly emerging societies, their values and aspirations.

The region which this book covers is the Islamic Interland, taking in interviews with leading brand creators in locations including Istanbul, Beirut, Dubai, Jordan, Jakarta and many others across the Middle and Far East. In these pages you will meet the producer of a TV show that was a hit in 53 countries, Obama’s State Representative to the Muslim World, pioneers of the Arabic Web scene involved in $100m+ deals, social venture pioneers and activists, secular democrats and hijab wearing fashionistas, and a full cast of fabulous creative designers, entrepreneurs and artists in many different creative fields.
