REVIEWS

Today we know that neurobiological reactions to external stimuli drive people’s preferences, actions and emotions or, in simple words, people’s behaviour. Living Brands leverages multidisciplinary scientific branches with the support of the top world research institutes, ultimately culminating into a wheel of motives. While individual preferences and trends can quickly evolve, human motives have deep roots and provide a longer, solid base for the establishment of corporate vision and strategies… it is a must read and explore approach.

Dr. Paolo Arancio, Global Head of Strategic Innovation Partnership, Nestlé Skin Health

Living Brands is, simultaneously, deeply unsettling and deeply reassuring. The book effectively breaks established models on brand thinking. By rooting human behaviour in the more predictable neurological reaction, Constantinos Pantidosunshackles brands from the tyranny of narrow psychographic segments and salami-sliced positioning platforms.Must read for anyone invested in creating brands.

Iconic

This book is about icons – exceptional organizations (orchestras, restaurants, sports teams or companies) with an aspiration to make or do something special, and to go on doing so, year in, year out for decades. This is what gives these organizations their undeniably iconic status.
By selecting 14 iconic organizations (including ElBulli, McKinsey, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Procter & Gamble, the All Blacks) and researching what characteristics make them different from others, the authors discovered a “competency spiral” which these organizations exhibit in their success. Attracting and retaining the right people; forging individuals into a team; and achieving outstanding results, time after time, through continuous improvement and adjustment – these are the key competencies required to achieve iconic status.

The Rise of Bacardi

In 1862, in the city of Santiago de Cuba, a family-owned business purchased a distillery, producing the first bottle of what would become known as BACARDÍ rum. In the years that followed, Bacardi expanded to become a globally recognized household name, renowned for its premium quality white rum. The Rise of Bacardi tells the story of the Bacardi company, from its origins in the mid-19th century to its expansion in the early 20th to its international acclaim as the world's leading manufacturer of spirits today. This is the story of a company, but it is also the story of a family who has faced political and societal upheaval, from the Spanish American War to American Prohibition and the Cuban Revolution, and has continued to go from strength to strength over the last 150 years. As a member of the Bacardí family and former employee of the company, Jorge Del Rosal provides a unique insider's point of view in parallel to his own story as the company expanded in the latter half of the 20th century to today.
