In today's competitive job market, you need to find an edge. What if you had one of the top CEOs in the publishing industry as your mentor? What if that mentor gave you inside information and top tips to help you plan your route to the top? And what if that mentor was available at the click of a button?
In an effective but light-hearted talk, Richard Charkin, executive director of Bloomsbury PLC (publisher of the phenomenally successful Harry Potter novels), gives the lowdown on how to climb the career ladder, the best way to start, what pitfalls to avoid as you advance, and how to stay on top once you're there.
As a bonus, people at the top of their profession - such as best-selling author Jeffrey Archer and chief executive of the British Library, Lynne Brindley - provide questions they've always wanted the answers to.
Topics covered include:
Enjoyed listening to this title, which proves you don't have to be ruthless to get to the top. I'd be curious to know how many CEOs in non-arts-related industries shared his views; I'm sure many of them could benefit from listening to the very people-centred business philosophy of this author, whose personality really comes through.
