Cork, Ireland, 2013/11/28 - As a serial entrepreneur known globally in the Telecoms industry as a thought leader for innovation and strategy, Brendan Dowling shares practical advice and stories based on his own experience - OakTreePress.com.
According to Brendan,“One of my overriding reasons for writing this book was the fact that I received very little practical advice myself as I started and grew my own businesses. I did not have a mentor or coach and practical books with real business advice were hard to come by. ACCELERATING COMPANY GROWTH will help any CEO to grow their business beyond what they would have achieved on their own.
“For the cover, I chose an image of a racing yacht in full sail, capturing the power of the wind and crashing through waves, as it accelerates through the ocean. This is the best representation of what it is like to accelerate company growth. To go this fast, you need to have a great team who know what they are doing and who work in perfect harmony, under the leadership of a great captain, who makes the right decisions on what direction to go and the sails to use for the wind conditions, currents, waves and all the other elements that are thrown at you by the unpredictable environment. When you get everything right, the excitement and adrenalin rush that comes from the acceleration, as you ride and crash through waves under your own power, is invigorating just like accelerating the growth of your company”.
