Kevin Murray hosts People with Purpose book launch in collaboration with YouGov
8th March 2017 | Kevin Murray
On Thursday 23rd February, Kogan Page attended the book launch for People with Purpose, by Kevin Murray, at Foyles Charing Cross Road. The event was an opportunity for leaders, contributors, friends and family to come together to network, find out more about Kevin's writing experience, and also about how People with Purpose can benefit anyone who leads or aspires to lead a team.
The event was held in partnership with YouGov, an international market research company that conducts surveys for a diverse group of clients to help them better understand public views about current affairs, and consumer products and brands. Kevin worked with YouGov throughout his book on some employee-manager research in order to find out what leaders need to do in order to inspire super performance in their teams.
When discussing his launch, Kevin said 'A book launch marks the culmination of a lot of hard work from a lot of people, so it was great to have a real celebration that involved everyone. Kogan Page made sure the books were given a wonderful display at the centre of everything. Even better, the books were on sale in the leadership section of Foyle's. Couldn't have been better.'
Helen Kogan, Managing Director of Kogan Page, said 'We are honoured to be publishing Kevin's third book People with Purpose. He is not only a fantastic author and business person, but also a great friend, so it is fantastic to be stood here today at his book launch.' She later continued to say 'It is clear to anyone that knows Kevin that he is passionate about what he does, and we really feel as if this is communicated perfectly in his third book. His previous knowledge and writing experience coupled with extensive research with top CEOs has meant that his book is the perfect insight into how great leaders can use purpose to build thriving organizations.'
People with Purpose explores the competitive advantage of having a compelling purpose at the heart of your business strategy, especially when combined with powerful values and a focus on relationships.
