    Mark Hume McCormack is an American Entrpreneur, who is an agent and friend to some of Americas most elite sports personalities. He has written a few books including, What you’ll never learn on the Internet, and, What they don’t teach you at Harvard Business School. Hes a great source of insperation and a great read.

    Hi Gordon,

    try MAVERICK which is the book about Riccardo Semler, the Brazilian entrepreneur wo runs Semco – he has some very novel ways of leading his organisation.



  3. The New Alchemists

    It may be that your student might benefit from reading Charles’s book “The New Alchemists” published by Hutchinson at £14.99

    I saw Charles Handy speak at the HR Forum last year and was impressed by the observations he made on the nature of entrepreneurial spirit.

    The New Alchemists, offers portraits of 29 Londoners, each original and creative people loosely associated with business. Some of his names feature inevitably on every list of colourful British entrepreneurs – Richard Branson, Terence Conran and Tim Waterstone. But Handy also provides a selection of less well-known names, among them William Atkinson, head of a Hammersmith school, and Mapi Lucchesi, proprietor of a translation business.

    Few generalisations can be made about Handy’s 29 individuals. Some of them came from deprived backgrounds, some from privileged ones. Some excelled academically, some did not. Some succeeded first time, some did not.

    The key entrepreneurial characteristics Handy singles out for closer attention are dedication, doggedness and difference.

    I hope your student finds this useful.

    Best wishes
