Brian MacNeice and James Bowen receive national recognition through the Independent Press Award

powerhouse-with-borders.jpgThe Independent Press Award has recognized Powerhouse by Brian MacNeice and James Bowen in the General Business category as a distinguished favourite.

The competition is judged by experts from all aspects of the book industry, including publishers, writers, editors, book cover designers and professional copywriters. They select award Winners and Distinguished Favourites based on overall excellence.

Powerhouse uncovers the performance secrets of some of the world’s most impressive organizations. It provides a provocative and inspiring insight into how these institutions lead their respective fields. MacNeice and Bowen have conducted immersive and personal research, interviewing the leaders, observing the practices and investigating the cultures of these global performance powerhouses.

These richly diverse, and seemingly contrasting, organizations – across business, the arts, sport, technology, medicine, education and finance – share one characteristic in common: they are leaders that have repeatedly outperformed their competition. Powerhouse reveals what makes each of them tick, what they have in common and what lessons can be learned – providing a unique and practical approach for achieving enduring high performance in any organization.

Awards sponsor, Gabrielle Olczak said, "In 2017, we had worldwide participation, from London to Australia, from Portugal to Hong Kong, and are so proud to announce the winners and favourites in our annual Independent Press Award. Independent publishing is alive and well, and continues to gain traction worldwide."

Helen Kogan, Managing Director, Kogan Page said “We are thrilled to have had Powerhouse selected as a distinguished favourite in the Independent Press Award. It is fantastic to have so many of our business books being recognised, especially as we celebrate our 50th year in independent publishing.”
