Raise your Game
By Jenny Handley and Gavin Cowley
An outstanding book by two outstanding people! Raise your Game, shares lessons and life skills learnt from business and sport, outlining winning strategies for aspirant South Africans. It draws from Gavin’s vast experience in the field of business and marketing, from 17 years as a top level sportsperson and as a rugby commentator, and from Jenny’s marketing, entrepreneurial, brand-building and public relations experience.
This book acknowledges that everyone needs a hand up, not a hand out. Many individuals find themselves in organisations without a natural mentor, and lack proper integration into a working environment. Raise your Game offers guidance, inspiration and the opportunity for personal development. It may be for those in their career starting blocks, or someone changing direction of play when elevated to a fresh working environment, or into a more senior position of responsibility.
Sporting anecdotes, famous quotes, a ‘to do’ component and the theme of sport, add flavour to each chapter, ensuring a lively informative read. It is devised to be practical, encouraging readers to apply the words, rather than to simply read and digest them.
