Product description


"To define a purpose that will galvanise the entire organisation is a leap of faith and requires strong leadership, but it also requires the clear and compelling process outlined in this book if you are to embark on this incredible journey." (Patrick Dempsey OBE, former Managing Director of Whitbread Hotels & Restaurants 2015-08-18)

"Shaun and Andy have created another great book, On Purpose, describing simply how great businesses use purpose and focus to fill customer needs and create value. Well done." (Vernon W. Hill II, Founder/Chairman of Metro Bank 2015-08-18)

"Creating a WOW experience for customers starts with creating a WOW experience for employees and both need to be based on your purpose. This book can show you how." (Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos.com, Inc. and New York Times bestselling author of Delivering Happiness 2015-09-09)

"With their latest book, Shaun Smith and Andy Milligan delve even further into the fabric of customer-focused companies, exploring the very purpose of these brands, and making a convincing correlation between customer advocacy and a strong sense of company purpose.... But On Purpose isn't just thought-provoking - it is also action-provoking. It will surely generate an urgent sense of soul-searching amongst those whose brands are built as money-making machines. But it will also encourage those brands built on more purposeful foundations to revisit their philosophies and ensure that these are being clearly communicated both to employees and customers. The key message of this terrific book is that brands need to be engaging and inspiring to stand out from the crowd. And without a clear sense of purpose - within the company, its leaders, its staff and its communications - brands will struggle to be distinctive." (Neil Davey Editor, MyCustomer, Group Editor SIFT MEDIA 2015-08-21)

"Shaun Smith and Andy Milligan have added another strong chapter to their purpose. This is a must read for any leader who is looking at differentiating their business by asking the important "why" and "why us" questions. It will provide excellent guidance on how to create your own journey and, most importantly, how to stick to it once your business purpose has been found." (Frans-Willem de Kloet, Managing Director & CEO UPC Czech Republic 2015-08-18)

"No successful business leader of the future can feel exempt from reading this remarkable book. It is by two global experts, extremely readable and compelling in its key message to place customer experience at the very core of every business." (Roger Harrop, The CEO Expert, Author, International Speaker 2015-08-21)

"Every now and then a truly cutting-edge book comes along that changes everything we know about the secrets of organizational greatness. On Purpose is a profound yet practical book no leader should miss reading. Laced with powerful examples and pragmatic practices, and written in a poignant style, Smith and Milligan reveal the mysteries of long-term enterprise success." (Chip R. Bell, author of The 9½ Principles of Innovative Service 2015-08-18)

"'On Purpose' wonderfully, informatively and encouragingly, brings to life the importance of a brand recognising the importance of having 'an authentic and credible sense of purpose'. It explores why this matters to consumers and employees alike - we all need to have an emotional connection with the purpose of a brand. ... Whether you are looking for validation of existing knowledge; new ideas to take your approach to Customer Experience forward; or just inspiration from two of the most experienced 'specialists' around, this cracking book has something for everyone interested in wanting to answer this fundamentally critical question: "what purpose does my business serve"." (Ian Golding, Customer Experience Specialist and Certified Customer Experience Professional, Customer Experience Consultancy Ltd)

"Great book - highly recommended!" (Joe Pine, co-author of The Experience Economy 2015-08-26)
