The Persuasion Industries: The Making of Modern Britain

By Steven McKevitt

Steven McKevitt recounts how consumers became immersed and ultimately defined by promotional culture. In this book, he evaluates how the complex and unforeseeable behaviour of consumers drastically changed all forms of brand communication, so while brands once went for rational appeals to rational consumers they now primarily communicate with people on an emotional level. The Persuasion Industries addresses how this transformation occurred and how it can still be observed today.

Accelerated Leadership Development: How to Turn Your Top Talent into Leaders
