What people are saying about this book

  • Everyone has a personal brand whether they acknowledge it or not. What I enjoyed about this very readable book is that it makes one conscious of defining one’s own values and ensuring that your behaviours  match those values.

    We all love reading about the high profile people we know courtesy of the media. This book gives real, interesting, relevant, and useful insights into a fascinating group of people – I loved the way the insights were highlighted throughout the book. The book is positive, confident and allows each featured business person to share what makes them unique, and what drives them, each one quite different.

    The wonderful insight for me was that they are actually all quite ordinary people – in other words, everyone has the potential for success if you are conscious about how you define Brand You. There is plenty to learn from this little gem.

  • From reading the testimonials of the various people interviewed, it is clear that Branding and Marketing approaches vary and draw from a diversity of strategies, principles, tools, qualities, virtues and values. The stories therefore provide a valuable reference for those who aspire to grow their brand identity and character.

  • More than anything this book highlights the importance of being comfortable in your own skin and the great  virtue of perseverance without which nothing is achieved

  • There is a plethora of mumbo jumbo books written on brands, this is not one of them. It is highly practical – a must read for entrepreneurs. By reading it you will have a much deeper understanding of how to shape brands (people or products) into highly valued commodities.
