'What a joy! Inspiring and powerful.' -- Ruby Wax

In a highly competitive world, many think business success means being ruthless: maximising short-term return for shareholders, cutting overheads, crushing competition, and expanding at an exponential pace. Nothing says this more than Silicon Valley with its macho mantras like 'Move fast and break things' (Facebook) or 'We're a team not a family' (Netflix). But this model is looking increasingly flawed.

What if there were another more compassionate way? Julietta Dexter believes there is. In this powerful and hopeful book, the award-winning CEO of The Communications Store explains how she built one of the world's most respected PR & communications companies without compromising her morals and without screwing over her staff or her clients. Highlighting a new paradigm for business, she explains why profit should be just one consideration among several, and why honesty, reliability and diversity are the best foundations for long-term success.

'What a joy! Dexter's book shows that it is possible for companies to cut the BS and care about individuals too. Inspiring and powerful.' * Ruby Wax *
A welcome riposte to the notion that business requires tough, single-minded and aggressive thinking... this is a book that hopefully will open up people's minds to a new way of working -- and a timely reminder that money and profit is definitely not everything. * Stylist *
Essential reading for leaders in the modern workplace. This is a fresh and dynamic view of creating a fairer and kinder form of business * Lord Price, founder of Engaging Works *
The right book at the right time and it could only have been written by a woman. Julietta Dexter shows that it is possible to have business acumen and ambition as well as being caring and compassionate. * Kathy Phillips, International Beauty Director for Conde Nast Asia *
