There's a lot of hot air in the world of business. Wouldn't it be nice just to hear some common sense? That's exactly what John Timpson offers: After four decades running his family business and turning it into one of the High Street's biggest success stories, he really knows what works and what doesn't. Upside Down Management shares how he turned the way the business was run on its head, and the lessons he learned in the process. From being the CEO to dealing with stress, and from breaking the rules to following your conscience, this book tells it like it is.
When young Charles Benson arrives in Toftham, a sleepy Norfolk market town, on a miserable Sunday afternoon in January 1952, he has only the vaguest idea what Fate has in store for him. It is at the hands of the editor of the Toftham and Wettleford Journal, Mr Juby, that Charles is introduced to local reporting and Norfolk ways.
