My book went live on Amazon yesterday and I’m delighted. It’s taken me quite a while to get to this stage and there were times that I didn’t think it would see the light of day. It’s based on my blog and tracks my 14 months at BHS as my team and I tried to turn around the hospitality business. We had a few successes but in reality we didn’t achieve what we set out to do. Given the revolution on the high street and the situation within BHS at the time I’m not sure that anyone could have done a whole lot better than we did, even a sale of the hospitality business to the Compass Group failed to really transform things.
It’s been fascinating looking back over this period. The book also deals with my thoughts on some of the big events of the time. The Scottish Independence referendum, the start of the EU referendum campaign and most importantly, David Moyes taking over at Manchester United!
I also share some random thoughts on leadership plus some snippets of my personal life. I hope people enjoy it!.
