Listen to Mike talk about his book here


When everyone knows that being in business is synonymous with being hell-bent on maximising personal income, it takes some courage to write a book that shows the exact opposite is not only possible, but also a cultural trend which is growing fast. This book shows that by putting people first, ie social and environmental responsibility, it is possible to build a financially sustainable business.

Mike explains very clearly how his model works, starting from a set of behavioural Values which are used to unite the team, through a clear statement of Purpose which transcends the need to focus on profit and allows all team members to make decisions.

As team members build their own personal self confidence through this process, so the business as a whole starts to grow and succeed. Doing business for good leads to attracting good customers, good suppliers and good employees. Business then becomes easier, more productive, more adaptable and more profitable. Doing business this way is indeed Valuable.

    Thank you! A highly recommended read, The purpose, values and principles are a great framework in which to run any organisation. An inspirational message of trust, integrity, respect and honesty. A breath of fresh air in our unsustainable culture led by the big corporations. Long may your business model continue and prosper. Good luck. Neil – Mayo

    This is a wonderful book, written in a style which is both easy to read and absorbing. The fact that it is based on actual and successful experience just adds weight to the message that if you put people and relationships first, then good things will follow. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is either already in business or thinking of starting one.

    I really enjoyed this, Mike. A personal style which is easy to read and illuminates some big themes. The more people who can stand up and say ‘Why are we doing it like this?’ the better and even more important are the people who can offer an alternative. I’d recommend this book to business leaders and owners, and to their employees, so that more of them ask the question of their boss.
