Using Susan's own experiences and those of the many self-determining people she has met and interviewed over the years, she eloquently explores what happens when people receive due acknowledgment - and what happens when they don't.Now, more than ever, in this post-September 11 world, we have a clear choice. Do we move forwards or backwards? Do we dare to have a bold vision of how we would like the world to be or a predictable plan for retribution? As voters we need to ask ourselves, who has the boldest vision for our future? Is it a bold vision of light and moving forward or is it a vision of darkness and destruction and moving back to where we were before September 11, 2001?

More than ever before business success depends on standing out from the crowd and delivering authentic experiences that turn your customers into advocates for your business. BOLD tells the stories of 14 companies that prove that brand building is now about completely rethinking the customer experience and redefining the relationship you have with your customers. Each inspiring story is told by the executives involved who were brave enough to pursue audacious goals, challenge industry norms and win. Winner of the E-book category of the CMI Management Book of the Year Awards (2011/12), BOLD puts the spotlight on Virgin Galactic, Innocent, O2, Air Asia X, Chilli Beans, Six Senses Resorts and Spas, Burberry, BBH, The Geek Squad, TNT Express, JCB, WWF, Umpqua Bank and Zappos.com. These inspiring case studies demonstrate that putting purpose before profit, going way beyond what customers expect and relentlessly differentiating themselves from everyone else - in other words, being bold in thought, bold in execution and bold in measuring their success in new ways - pays off.

Bold Endeavors

How Our Government Built America, and Why It Must Rebuild Now

Author: Felix G. Rohatyn

Publisher: Simon and Schuster

ISBN: 9781416566069

Category: History

Page: 256

View: 2497

Bold Endeavors is a compelling narrative of ten large and transformative events in American history. It is an absorbing journey through the past as we read about determined national leaders -- Jefferson, Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, FDR, and Eisenhower -- who found the will, steadiness, and political acumen to make decisions that were often unpopular but that proved to be visionary -- decisions that are the building blocks of America's destiny. Rohatyn begins with the diplomatic intrigues of the Louisiana Purchase, which doubled the size of the country; moves to the controversial construction of the Erie Canal, which opened a water route to the West; then continues to Lincoln's resolute support for the transcontinental railroad, Land Grant colleges, and the Homestead Act; documents the strategy -- and ruthless determination -- that built the Panama Canal; details the visionary and pragmatic politics that allowed FDR to bring electricity to rural America and use the Reconstruction Finance Act to help pull the country from the grip of the Depression; captures the foresight of national purpose which led to the G.I. Bill, which propelled the nation forward; and describes the creation of the interstate highway system that modernized America. Bold Endeavors is an urgent call for present-day action in this time of grave national crisis. "The nation is falling apart -- literally," Rohatyn warns. "America's roads and bridges, schools and hospitals, airports and roadways, ports and dams, water lines and air control systems -- the country's entire infrastructure is rapidly and dangerously deteriorating." To reverse this catastrophic degeneration and create tens of thousands of new jobs, Rohatyn offers a carefully reasoned and practical solution. Bold and imaginative political leadership must use the power and the resources of the federal government to finance the rebuilding of the nation's infrastructure. Rohatyn's page-turning case studies are precedents for purposeful, resourceful, and tenacious leadership that is necessary to accomplish both the rebuilding of America and the country's emergence from its present financial crisis. These bold endeavors from the nation's past are instructive, a guide and an inspiration for Americans today. If the nation is to be rebuilt and its infrastructure renewed, if the country is to emerge from the present economic crisis and reclaim its position of unqualified strength and leadership in world affairs, then it must be guided by the vision, determination, and investments that originally helped create a secure and prosperous America.

A century of Asian American writing has generated a forceful cascade of "bold words." This anthology covers writings by Asian Americans in all genres, from the early twentieth century to the present. Some sixty authors of Chinese, Filipino, Japanese, Korean, South Asian, and Southeast Asian American origin are represented, with an equal split between male and female writers. The collection is divided into four sections-memoir, fiction, poetry, and drama-prefaced by an introductory essay from a well-known practitioner of that genre: Meena Alexander on memoir, Gary Pak on fiction, Eileen Tabios on poetry, and Roberta Uno on drama. The selections depict the complex realities and wide range of experiences of Asians in the United States. They illuminate the writers' creative responses to issues as diverse as resistance, aesthetics, biculturalism, sexuality, gender relations, racism, war, diaspora, and family. Rajini Srikanth teaches at the University of Massachusetts, Boston. She is the coeditor of the award-winning anthology Contours of the Heart: South Asians Map North America and the collection A Part, Yet Apart: South Asians in Asian America. Esther Y.

The author introduces the reader to key concepts and debates that contextualize the obstacles women have faced and continue to face in the fields of science and engineering. She focuses on the history of women's education in mathematics and science through the ages, from antiquity to the Enlightenment. While opportunities for women were often purposely limited, she reveals how many women found ways to explore science outside of formal education. The book examines the lives and work of three women - Sophie Germain, Mileva Einstein, and Rosalind Franklin - that provide excellent examples of how women's contributions to science have been dismissed, ignored or stolen outright. She concludes with an in-depth look at women's participation in science and engineering throughout the twentieth century.

The world’s oceans cover about 70% of our planet. To safeguard the delicate ecological and environmental functions of the oceans and their remarkable biodiversity, networks of marine protected areas are being created. In some of these areas, human activity is restricted to non-exploitative activities and in others it is managed in a sustainable way. Australia is at the forefront of marine conservation, with one of the largest systems of marine protected areas in the world. Big, Bold and Blue: Lessons from Australia’s Marine Protected Areas captures Australia’s experience, sharing important lessons from the Great Barrier Reef and many other extraordinary marine protected areas. It presents real-world examples, leading academic research, perspectives on government policy, and information from indigenous sea country management, non-governmental organisations, and commercial and recreational fishing sectors. The lessons learnt during the rapid expansion of Australia’s marine protected areas, both positive and negative, will aid and advise other nations in their own marine conservation efforts.

Hilary Devey is one of our most remarkable entrepreneurs and was an instant sensation when she appeared on Dragon's Den. Now, in this powerful memoir, she reveals the full story of her turbulent life. She describes how her father's bankruptcy sparked a fierce determination in her not to end up the same way. When her father started working in the pub trade, Hilary did too - at the age of seven - and has been grafting hard ever since. She built her own company, Pall-Ex, which today has an annual turnover of £100 million, never giving up even when she was so broke she couldn't afford to give her son a Christmas dinner. Admitting to terrible taste in men, Hilary opens up about her marriages and the destructive relationship she thought would break her. She tells how she faced a mother's worst nightmare, her son's heroin addiction, and fought back from a stroke that almost killed her. Bold as Brass is candid, brave and laced with the warmth and humour that have made Hilary so popular. Ultimately, it's as inspirational as the woman herself.
