There are few books that help you maximize your company's resources to the fullest. Highly Recommended!
Peter gift wraps startling ideas with great entertainment, In the hands of another, less intelligent writer, this kind of book could become incoherent, but Peter has enough intellectual power to make this a 'MUST HAVE BOOK'... Change Magic has conviction, style, knowledge and humour.

Boross is the boss when it comes to successful, effective, memorable pitching. Gavin Duffy, Dragon's Den Ireland
The Pitching Bible is an enjoyable and thought-provoking book that is written with clarity, insight and humour. It takes you on an illuminating journey through the seven secrets of a successful business pitch. Paul Boross explains that he learned the hard way about what does and does not work when pitching. As a consequence he has used his vast and varied experience to create a book that is overflowing with practical ideas and techniques for preparing and delivering a winning pitch.
With subtlety and skill the book challenges the assumptions that the reader brings to it. To support this process Paul regularly offers questioning, reflection and information points for the reader. You are encouraged to work your way through each `secret' and reflect upon your thinking and practice in key areas of pitching. For example, when do you think a pitch actually begins? Who is vital in the process of making you win a pitch, is it you or is it your audience? How is it possible to always remain in control of your pitch? What type of language makes you more persuasive when pitching? Paul Boross offers solutions to every question that he raises. What I like about his solutions is that they are based on real-world experience and have real-world application.
This is an impressive book that actively engages you as a reader. When you finish reading The Pitching Bible you will notice that there is an eighth `secret'...buying a copy of this book will give you a competitive edge when pitching and will help you win more business. I recommend that you buy one.

For any business manager or owner who has ignored the importance of fostering a culture within their organization that is closely aligned with the goals, values and vision of their company, Roger's book is a must read.

It has been a steep learning curve for me. The input from CGW made me revisit the style and format of the book which, now published, is very different from the original look that it had before working with them.
Roger Payne, author of The Business Cohesion Model
This thought provoking book challenges leaders to think and take action if they are to improve the offering and performance of their organisation: their brand. The Business Cohesion Model should be read and acted on by every Chief Executive and their senior leadership teams.
