Business Resilience is a practical guide to making organizations more resilient and improving current practices by building on what the organization does well.

These practices avoid unnecessary change but enable rapid and sustainable improvements in product development, service delivery and customer value. Learn how to survive and thrive in any environment with this actionable approach to making progress at pace and effectively embedding business resilience.

The Bears Ears A Human History of America's Most Endangered Wilderness

The Bears Ears A Human History of America's Most Endangered Wilderness

Author: David Roberts Format: Hardback Release Date: 11/01/2022

The Bears Ears National Monument in southeastern Utah, created by President Obama in 2016 and eviscerated by the Trump administration in 2017, contains more archaeological sites than any other region in the United States. It's also a spectacularly beautiful landscape, a mosaic of sandstone canyons and bold mesas and buttes. This wilderness, now threatened by oil and gas drilling, unrestricted grazing, and invasion by Jeep and ATV, is at the center of the greatest environmental battle in America since the damming of the Colorado River to create Lake Powell in the 1950s. In The Bears Ears, acclaimed adventure writer David Roberts takes readers on a tour of his favorite place on earth as he unfolds the rich and contradictory human history of the 1.35 million acres of the Bears Ears domain. Weaving personal memoir with archival research, Roberts sings the praises of the outback he's explored for the last twenty-five years.

Harry & Me 200 Memories of Harry Nilsson by the fans and musicians that loved him the most

Harry & Me 200 Memories of Harry Nilsson by the fans and musicians that loved him the most

Author: David Roberts Format: Hardback Release Date: 14/10/2021

Harry Nilsson was The Beatles' favourite recording artist but terrified of performing live. Consequently, only a tiny minority of the hundreds of fans and musicians who contributed memories to this collection of stories ever saw him play in front of any kind of audience. But it's the songs - there's nothing like them according to Jimmy Webb - and his vocal style - the supreme singer of any generation says producer Richard Perry - that keep the love of Harry Nilsson lingering so long after his death aged just 52 in 1994. The publication of this book of memories coincides with the 50th anniversary of the release of album Nilsson Schmilsson and the smash-hit single 'Without You'. Harry & Me started life as anecdotes, tales, stories and adventures related by fans, friends and musicians. But mid-way through the process of gathering the hundreds of interviews and quotes, author and Nilsson fan Neil Watson discovered more than three hours of never-before read interview recordings Harry had made back in the 60s, 70s and 80s. These very personal reflections by Harry on his career have been transcribed and added to the book and effectively make it Harry & Me... & Harry. Illustrated with rare and personal photos and memorabilia from the fans, Harry & Me is a beautifully designed treasure trove of the memories of a unique character who left an unforgettable legacy of some of the most life-affecting songs ever recorded.
