Reviews for Futureproof:
‘…..an excellent read – demystifying the disruption buzzword with refreshing pragmatism.’ – Reviewed by ED BUSSEY, founder and chief executive, Quill Content (www.campaignlive.co.uk)
“The opposite of Future Shock is future proof. Either sit still or move! It’s the latter that Dial and Storkey have outlined for you here. Adapt or die!” – BRIAN SOLIS, best-selling author, award-winning digital analyst, futurist and human
“This is a book that challenged me and made me think at every turn. It disrupted my mind!” – MARK SCHAEFER, consultant, speaker and author of KNOWN
‘I live by a quote that I once picked up from Tom Peters. The quote is from General Eric Shinseki who said: ‘if you don’t like change, you’re going to like irrelevance even less.’ Disruption affects everyone. B2B, B2C, small, medium and large organizations. Even those who are the disruptors are now being disrupted. What’s a brand to do? Thankfully, Minter Dial and Caleb Storkey have the answer. “Futureproof, Get Your Business Ready For The Next Disruption” does, exactly, what the title states. Be ready or be disrupted.’ – MITCH JOEL – President, Mirum – Author, Six Pixels of Separation & CTRL ALT Delete
‘Today, neither agile, precarious startups nor lumbering, momentum-merry global corporates have the formula for endurance. The new world requires a responsive business but it demands accountability. Old models put profits first – new ones, social impact. Futureproof offers a playbook for the scary and thrilling landscape that all companies are now forced to operate in. It’s both eye-opening and educative, yet fiercely practical. No one in business should be without it.’ – ROD BANNER, Entrepreneur, Board Member and Investor
“After many decades of companies forcing mediocre products and services upon consumers who had very little choice, we’re now in an era where buyers are in charge because of the real-time availability of near perfect digital information. As Minter and Caleb show, true disruption comes from deeply understanding consumers and adopting a mindset of serving them in this new world. It’s not easy to disrupt, but the rewards for doing so are enormous.” – DAVID MEERMAN SCOTT, bestselling author of The New Rules of Marketing and PR, now in 29 languages from Albanian to Vietnamese.
