No doubt from the cover what this book is all about: the power of change, by Richard Gerver. Richard was a head teacher who turned around a failing school in Derbyshire using inspirational and innovative techniques (and a philosophy of 'living, learning and laughing'). The transformation, in just two years, was recognised worldwide and Richard picked up the School Head Teacher of the Year Award in 2005. After leaving the education system, he continued developing and evolving his ideas and is now a consultant and inspirational speaker helping individuals and companies embrace change.

Change is a book that distils his approach, driven by Richard’s personal experiences of change, and the insights they have given him, all underpinned by his deep understanding of the core principles of communication, empowerment and impact.

He is a natural communicator – blending passion, storytelling and humour - as proved by his constant demand as a speaker (UK Business Speaker of the Year in 2011). Philip worked with Richard to shape and create the text for Change, which topped the WHS Business Books chart. And a big shout out for the brilliant cover illustration by Yulia Brodskaya.

"Filled with memorable stories and jammed with useful, actionable approaches to befriending, dealing with and profiting from change." Seth Godin, author of Purple Cow and The Icarus Deception

"In this perceptive and heartfelt book, Richard Gerver helps us see change as an opportunity for creative reinvention." Sir Ken Robinson, author of The Element
