NEW ZEALAND PRESS RELEASE

Inspirational Kiwis Share Their Gifts Of Wisdom

How did Sam Morgan inspire his Trade Me staff? What made Sir Paul Callaghan such a good motivator? Why does 3M’s culture of innovation work so well? Who conceived Treat Me?

The answers to these and other leadership, entrepreneurship, and culture challenges can be found in the book, Gifts of Wisdom, produced by Success Formula and published by Financial & Business Advisor Ltd. The book will be launched at a Global Entrepreneurship Week event in Wellington on Friday 16th November.

Beautifully put together and easy to read, this unique A4 coffee table book is built around replicas of the 35 original handwritten messages, complete with crossing out and quirky sketches. It is really refreshing to have something so personal in our digital age! The contributors make up a cross section of business leaders, from the famous and iconic like Rob Drury, Steve Maharey and Sir Anand Satyanand, to local business people. This colourful fabric of gogetters in New Zealand makes the book both interesting, and accessible, highlighting that great ideas really do come from any quarter. The book also has space for you to add your own comments, ideas and words of inspiration. Part of the book’s proceeds will support the efforts of Global Entrepreneurship Week New Zealand and nurturing New Zealand talent.

The perfect Christmas gift, Gifts of Wisdom is available to purchase online from http://www.businessadvisor.co.nz.
