Surfing the Asian Wave: How to survive and thrive in the new global reality
By Steve McGinnes
This book combines first-hand experiences from thinkers, leaders and business people across multiple industries about how to do business in the face of new borders.

Each topic addresses a different area, from tradition and values to common mistakes and where culture overlaps.

By Nick Carson
To mark the 50th anniversary of Virgin a new book has been released charting the organisation’s evolution into an airline, hotel and even space-flight provider.
However, this book doesn’t just focus on the brand’s evolving corporate identity and rule-breaking journey, it also addresses some of Virgin’s failures. Here Carson aims to give an honest – and sometimes brutally so – account of all aspects of the business, including the launch of the Virgin Cola and Virgin Brides brands, offset by the company’s undoubted success stories.
