Naked Banking

We all depend on banks. They help us save and they help us spend. Yet for many they represent everything that's wrong with the world of finance. Poor service, high fees, creaking IT infrastructure and a market controlled by just a few providers have combined in recent years to create a personal banking crisis every bit as severe as the global financial crisis. How have things got so bad? Why are banks unable to balance providing good customer service with making a profit? And what can we do to protect ourselves from the tricks banks play to part us with our hard-earned money? This ground-breaking book, written by three insiders, reveals why banks do the things they do. From designing products they know will rip customers off to cutting branches they know their customers rely on, they explain how many banks' failing business models force them to make the wrong choices again and again. They make a rallying call for us all to be better informed about how everyday banking products actually work and to be wary of the many tricks and techniques product managers devise to make money.

Dedication

In 2012, the Chinese company Huawei Technologies overtook Ericsson to become the world’s largest telecommunications equipment manufacturer, firmly establishing itself on the world business map. Today, it has over 170,000 employees worldwide and in 2014 the company generated a remarkable profit of $5.5 billion. Whilst research and development and the technology that results from it are core drivers of Huawei’s success, the company’s amazing growth is also determined by its human resource strategy. This is based on a “customer-first” attitude, the belief that obtaining opportunities is through hard work and, above all, “a dedication to do the best in anything we do”. How Huawei promotes this dedication amongst its workforce is the subject of this important book. Through original incentive systems, employee ownership and the mentality to act like a boss, Huawei has managed to create a culture of dedication that has become the bedrock of its growth today.

The Green Bubble

The fact is, we are hopelessly addicted to energy. It is the thin glue that holds our civilized world together and life without it would be unthinkable.

Per Wimmer, Owner of Wimmer Financial, Wimmer Family Office and WimmerSpace.com, is releasing his book The Green Bubble this November. The Green Bubble offers an analysis of the current financial bubble being created in the energy sector, by governments subsidizing renewable energy investment. He argues that these investments are not sustainable, and makes a case for investment in gas and, controversially, nuclear power.

Alongside the pressure to reduce greenhouse emissions, there is a challenge to find new, renewable energy sources. Many of the current ideas, Wimmer argues, are politically driven. The book also offers an engaging and intelligent analysis of the different energy issues that the world is facing, and how politics has led us in the wrong direction.

Disruption Denial

We live in a world of constant change and disruption caused mainly by new technology. Yet, in business, there is widespread apathy, paralysis and confusion in many established companies in face of the obvious scope, scale, reach and pace of disruptive change. Why? Because Denial is the natural default response, given how executives’ brains function and how they are trained.
This important book examines why companies seem paralysed in the headlights of onrushing digital and other disruption. In analysing and understanding this tendency towards denial in companies, the author is then able to guide executives to begin seeing a new perspective to coping with the transformation challenge that faces them. Full of insightful case studies and lessons gained from the author’s work with leading companies, this is a hugely timely book when virtually all companies and executives must deal with the threat of disruptive change.
