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.

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 Entrepreneurial Myth

The Entrepreneurial Myth is a timely challenge to redesign entrepreneurship for the health and wealth of all. Entrepreneurs are deified as all-powerful, never-fail gurus who shoulder our collective necessity for enterprise. Promoted through education, politics and media, the mythical entrepreneur bears little relation to the messy reality of running a small business. Based on analysis spanning 30 years, this book challenges the pervasive misrepresentation of business creators in the UK, US, India and China. It examines how The Entrepreneurial Myth damages entrepreneur's mental health, skews public policy, amplifies business failure rates and undermines global economies. Hear a heartfelt call to business people and politicians, legislators and educators, to redesign enterprise for the next generation. Help strip The Entrepreneurial Myth of its power and recalibrate business success. Seize this vital opportunity to boost entrepreneurial wellbeing and resilience. This book is a timely invitation to build a more reflective, more effective entrepreneurship for the health and wealth of all. Author:  Louise Nicolson
