This was my first Northern Taste of Clean experience. Caitlin Walker and Shaun Hotchkiss hosted the event, and hospitality is something they do wonderfully well. I was expecting an interesting, perhaps challenging experience, maybe a way to develop useful skills.
Last year my business, Genius Within, was growing and I had more and more associates working for us, delivering to a wide range of clients. I was delivering face-to-face services as well as managing the business and I was very busy, to the extent where I completely forgot a key meeting.

Images of Organization
This book is a classic in the canon of management literature.

It challenges and reshapes how we think about organisation and management in the most fundamental way.
