NEW BOOK: "People with Purpose"
Kevin’s latest book, “People with Purpose” is about how great business leaders use purpose to power what he calls “super performance”. It is also about the wider concept of what it takes to give people a sense of purpose.
The book has received powerful endorsements from business leaders, including Stuart Rose (ex-M&S boss), who said, “It’s a book I wish I could have read 30 years ago.” Ernst & Young’s Valerie Keller (Executive Director, Global Markets) said, “This timely read advances the global purpose movement from talk to walk.”
