penguin launches ‘mission: how the best in business break through’ in paperback

Seven Hills is thrilled to announce that its best selling business book ‘Mission: How the Best in Business Break Through’ is published today by Penguin in paperback – this follows a highly successful debut in hardback.

‘Mission: How the Best in Business Breakthrough’ is one of Penguin’s bestselling business books and a major contributor to the debate about business as a force for change.

Since its hardback release ‘Mission’ has been endorsed by a fantastic array of entrepreneurs and business leaders:

‘I hate business books. Dull, repetitive and all touting the same flawed principles. Mission is different. Mission shows perfectly how the business landscape is changing and provides you with a set of awesome tools to turbo-charge your business for the 21st century. I was so blown away by this book I immediately contacted Nick and have been working with him ever since!’

James Watt, co-founder, Brewdog

‘This book rocks! Simply put, Mission is a blueprint for the future of business. It lays out a bold and optimistic vision where companies are driven by purpose as well as profit and it shares insights from a new wave of big-picture business leaders who explain how a strong sense of company mission brings competitive advantage and personal fulfillment’

Sarah Wood, co-founder and co-CEO, UNRULY

A fascinating treatise — and all the better for being digestible and readable. Mission is not stuffed with incomprehensible management gobbledegook. Business schools should study its pages’

Chris Blackhurst, Evening Standard

Mission is a brilliant book written for optimists. It charts ​a new and compelling opportunity for business and brings it to life: that purpose-led, socially-aware organisations can make a major impact. It’s a book that presses the point home that the best days for business are ahead because it can be at the heart of creating a better world. But it is also a call out to leaders to pay heed to a clock that is ticking. There is an urgent need for corporations to build trust and belief with communities and stakeholders alike. An important message and a joy to read’

Kerry Kennedy, president of Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights

‘There are a lot of books out there that aim to bring you lessons from successful entrepreneurs. Not many succeed. Mission is different. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and found myself glued to each page. There’s a lot to learn here and some fantastic takeaways for anybody’s professional life. Simply a stellar achievement’

Danny Lopez, Director General for UK Trade & Investment USA

‘A great book packed with illuminating case studies. Businesses with a strong mission are more successful, more meaningful and ultimately more fun to be a part of’

Michael Acton Smith OBE, Founder, Mind Candy

‘As the expectations and demands of consumers and employees change at a dramatic pace, Hayman and Giles chart a course that could lead to better businesses, stronger markets and a better society. This is a book for those seeking to understand the forces that will shape the business landscape in the years ahead’

Christian May, Editor, City A.M.

‘A book showing you that combining business and mission is NOT impossible. Be inspired! It is one of those books where you end up scribbling a lot of ideas within the white spaces’

Kathryn Parsons, co-founder, Decoded
