Summer Reading for a Smarter 2016

With US summertime hours officially kicking in this Sunday, summer’s finally here (if only foggy San Francisco would comply!). Schools are out and vacations are (hopefully) on the horizon for many of us. For me, that means catching up on the ever-growing pile of business and sustainability-focused reading (digital and print) I’ve been meaning to get to, and revisiting some old favorites. If you’re looking for some inspiring reading to keep the wheels turning and the ideas spinning this summer, here’s my pick of the crop.

The Big Pivot, by Andrew Winston Lauded by senior personnel in companies as diverse as Unilver, Coca-Cola and Seventh Generation, this book by green business strategist and frequent contributor to the Harvard Business Review, Andrew Winston, tackles the question of supply chain sustainability. This piques my interest as it focuses on solutions to a very complex problem in a relatable, and ultimately positive, way.

Strategize To Win, by Carla Harris There are several reasons this makes the list. Firstly, Carla Harris is the keynote speaker at next week’s WBENC National Conference. Consistently featured in “the ones to watch” lists in publications such as Fortune, Essence and Ebony, I can’t wait to attend her talk. Secondly, this book focuses on giving tools to successfully manage change and continually push forward and thrive – in any environment. As I’ve stated many times before, a commitment to learning is key to staying innovative and relevant, and who better to hear from than someone within the WBENC universe?

Marissa Meyer And The Fight To Save Yahoo!, by Nicholas Carson Originally a long-form article on BusinessInsider.com, this book looks at the fascinating story of Yahoo! prior to Marissa Meyer’s appointment, and everything that’s happened since. As the Yahoo! journey continues to unfurl, I’m looking forward to getting a different perspective on this incredible businesswoman and the enormity of the task she faces – particularly as it comes from a more complex prism that does more than focus on her gender.

Zero To One, by Peter Thiel The subtitle of this book is, “Notes on Startups, or How to Build the Future” and written by the legendary entrepreneur, investor and co-founder of Paypal, it’s a 2014 publication that I’m looking forward to dipping back into. At ARTÉMIA, we work with startups from all over the world, and it’s great to read the insights of someone who knows that innovation is not limited to the confines of Silicon Valley. Truly an inspiring read, it rejects the idea of stagnation and encourages a new way of innovative thinking. Highly recommended.

As ever, it would be great to hear from you. If you have any great summer reading for this season you’d like to share, don’t hesitate to drop me a line.
