I wanted to thank all of those who were kind enough to join me at The Brand Exchange in the City of London for the official launch of my fifth book “Better Business Relationships – Insights from psychology and management for working in a digital world”.
It was an eclectic group of guests which happily demonstrated the diversity element of the book. There were people from:
- Accountancy firms (including Haines Watts, Hartley Fowler and Wilson Associates)
- Law (including Anthony Gold solicitors and Thomson Snell & Passmore)
- Property (including Algorave, Anderton Gables, Corinthian, Lighthouse Surveyors and Logicor)
- Business (including those from the actuarial, health, hospitality, insurance, marketing and technology sectors)
The entire Bloomsbury Business team were present. I owe them all huge thanks for their utter dedication and professionalism during commissioning, editing, production, distribution and marketing. My editor Emily Bedford was there and Ian Hallsworth kindly said a few words during the short presentation.
I was delighted that my neuroscience professor from over 25 years ago – Fred Toates – came along with his wife Olga who is an amazing physicist. He connected with another eminent psychologist – Dr Kathryn Waddington of the University of Westminster who had been kind enough to provide an endorsement of the book. Richard Chaplin, founder of the Managing Partners Forum and the Professional Marketing Forum, who I have known for a very long time was also kind enough to provide an endorsement and join the celebrations.
Clive Lewis OBE, founder of Globis mediation and another kind endorser of the book had studied business psychology at The University of Westminster – what a small world! During my short speech, I mentioned Clive’s amazing work with the Bridge Builders mentoring scheme for young adults from disadvantaged backgrounds with which I had the honour of doing some work a while back.
Marcus Jamieson-Pond, whose early career was in professional services in roles including human resources and corporate social responsibility (CSR), took excellent photos. If you’d like copies please contact him: https://www.jampondphotography.com/
It was also wonderful that my son and daughter and one of my brothers were there – as well as several close family friends: Grant, James, Elly, Lizzie, Neil, Hazel, Charmaine, Ella, Rose, Richie and Jackie.
Thank you all for your support!
