Our Books

“If you don’t see the book you want on the shelves, write it.”
Beverley Cleary

We wrote the book on marketing strategy and
SME business strategy

Our founding Directors, Tim and Henry, have between them written three books on marketing strategy and business ownership. Their books are for business owners who want better results and need to become better business owners themselves. Alongside tried and tested marketing and business models, there are also exercises and tools for you to use in your own marketing and business.

Practical and insightful reading!
