Auctus Outsource review: ‘Like a Virgin: Secrets they won’t teach you at business school’
‘Looking for advice on setting up your own company, improving your career prospects, or developing your leadership skills? Why not ask Richard Branson?’ promises the tagline for ‘Like a Virgin- Secrets they won’t teach you at business school.
The idea of the book is for Branson to offer knowledge gained from his experiences over many years as one of the world’s most successful businessmen. The book is full of personality as usual for Branson, not only giving an insight into the business mind of the well-respected entrepreneur, but also allowing the reader to imagine what he would be like in person! This definitely helps when it comes to putting his points across, particularly his strong, passionate, no holds barred views towards several topics, including the global financial crisis.
Auctus Outsource love that Branson uses the book to answer real questions that he has been asked by real people over the years. ‘Like a Virgin…’ is a refreshing and honest take on the industry, with so many books in this sector stemming from academic grounds rather than solid experiences. Branson is not afraid to discuss his successful and not so successful projects in order to give the reader a true insight into running a business. This confirms the belief of Auctus Outsource that the most successful entrepreneurs are the ones who have suffered bad situations and overcome them to become stronger, more focussed and wise to the ups and downs of business.
Branson’s enthusiasm when discussing Public Relations, Marketing, Advertising and customer service resonated with everyone at Auctus Outsource, as this is an area that we feel incredibly strongly about. It is fundamentally important to the growth and development of our business.
To conclude, Auctus Outsource was not disappointed by Branson’s latest offering, securing his position as our favourite entrepreneur!
In three words, interesting, fun and insightful.
