REVIEWS

Very informative and on the money, dealing with the behaviours and actions required to get a data culture working that will deliver real business benefits. I’m already modifying & tweaking my own behaviours and interactions, excellent stuff!

Lee Taylor, Senior Insights Expert, Shell

I believe Seeing Around Corners is the most relevant business book I have read this year. Every leader should read this; whether they are in a start-up or major corporation. It is a book for now, and one that gives you confidence in a period of such uncertainty and disruption.

Mark Sutherland, Chief Technology Officer, Capita plc

The evolution of ‘Big Data’ and advanced analytics is not about data or information technology, it’s about rethinking the fundamentals about how we lead and manage organizations. It has the potential to be the biggest force to shape organizations since the industrial revolution. Seeing Around Corners brings to life the transformational potential of the new data paradigm and powerfully demonstrates the need to re-think how leaders make decisions. A must read for anyone who wants to be a leader in any organization.

Dr. Mark Powell, UK Head of Insights and Data, Capgemini Ltd

The Other Half

We live in a world that is unequal by nature. One could even say that its diversity is essential to all the world’s survival. However, inequality among human beings is one of society’s biggest problems.

This book is about opportunities. It is about being at the forefront of a paradigm change and a win-win situation. And it is about leading one of the most compelling and exciting shifts in our society: women’s empowerment. Company leaders are used to dealing with radical changes in markets, but there is a story that corporations all over the globe have chosen to ignore. This story is the sum total of millions of lost opportunities, because over half the potential workforce was left behind. Although half the population is made up of women, only 50% of them can earn a decent living. The Other Halfsets out to change just that.

The Ethical Business Book

The burgeoning array of literature on ethical behaviour tends to focus on what’s happening at the extremes – either owner managers of start-ups built around a strong moral crusade, or large corporations undergoing change due to the personal epiphany of a forward-thinking CEO. This book, however, is directed at the middle ground – individuals who want their companies to adopt more ethical and sustainable practices, but don’t know where to start. The 50 ideas and techniques in this book provide direction to help society and the planet, while preserving the bottom line.

Trusted mindsets and existing business models are collapsing, corporations are struggling to react to the Fourth Industrial Revolution by risking too little transformation too slowly – and your industry is up next!
