Minter Dialogue with Alison Jones
Alison Jones, MA MBA, has been a pioneer in publishing since 1992 from her days as an editor with Chambers Harrap and Oxford University Press to Director of Innovation Strategy at Macmillan, before setting up Practical Inspiration Publishing in 2014. Today she helps businesses leaders write and publish exceptional business and self-development books, and also champions the value of both reading and writing in business. She’s a podcaster and author of #1 Amazon bestseller “This Book Means Business” (2018). Her new book, coming mid December 2022, is a treat: “Exploratory Writing: Everyday magic for life and work.” We discuss her book, how writing can be such an amazing tool to figure out challenges and connect dots. We also look at some of the practical elements and exercises to create the right space to write.
