This is an enormous achievement for a small publishing business that was only launched just under two years ago. Jacqueline and her book deserve to do well and it’s been our pleasure to be involved with the project.
London, UK (PRWEB UK) 4 November 2013
The prize, awarded annually by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) in association with the British Library, aims to celebrate the very best in the field of management writing. The competition, now in its fourth year, is sponsored by Henley Business School.
Jacqueline Bigg’s book, 'Marketing to Win', is one of five books shortlisted in the “The Commuter’s Read” category, which recognises the best books for commuters, which will retain their attention during a journey to work by inspiring them, informing them about and engaging them with a management and leadership topic.
Lucy McCarraher, Jacqueline’s publisher said: “This is an enormous achievement for a small publishing business that was only launched just under two years ago. Jacqueline and her book deserve to do well and it’s been our pleasure to be involved with the project.”
Piers Cain said: “The standard has been very high this year and we are delighted with the shortlist, which highlights some very key management issues. The idea behind the competition is to highlight nuggets of ‘Management Gold’ to give practical advice to managers in what is a very crowded management and business book market. In truth, too many managers are only just managing, but these books can help them really start achieving. Congratulations to all those who have been shortlisted this year.”
‘Marketing to Win: How Small Businesses Can Do More With Less’ (ISBN 1781330514) is available now in print and ebook from all good book retailers.
