Recommended Reading

This is a new feature, which I hope you’ll find helpful, and will contribute to yourself.

This is a list of books that are favourites of ours, that we can recommend under a range of topics that we provide training and development in, plus some ’specials’ which don’t fit any particular category, but are good, mind opening books.

This is the starter list. We’ll add to it from time to time, and we’d really welcome suggestions from you. So if you’ve read something relevant to personal development, that you’ve found particularly helpful or inspiring, please let us know by leaving your name, a title and author in the box below. Thanks.
