My books focus on business skills, my hope is they will be used by people who are looking for inspiration or who want to develop their skills, maybe even help others to develop theirs. Many of the subjects I cover are related to soft skills, rather than technical and general principles rather the academic or technical textbooks.
I have always written, enjoying the creative process. There is nothing better than creating worthwhile content and turning that content into readable and valued books. In the early days, it wasn’t about writing books, although that was always a goal to be achieved. Early on it was the buzz I got from writing entertaining training materials while serving in the army and then later in business.
My first book, and in all honesty probably the hardest to write, was designed to help employees to become more valuable to the business for whom they worked. I called it ‘Mind The Gap’. The title was referring to the gap between average and exceptional behaviour and habits at work. I wrote this after a rather tumultuous time as CEO for a business that headquartered both in the UK and the USA.
My second book looked at the new world of PR and media, and how with new technologies the small business could compete equally with the major brands when it came to online marketing. I called it ‘Winking In The Dark’ – subtitled ‘Rainmakers Do It With The Light On.’ My current book is called ‘Sales Alchemy’, you may even be able to guess what that’s all about. All three books are also available as workshops or shorter TED-style presentations. All books are available from me (signed copies) or if you prefer available on Amazon, iBooks, and Kindle.
