The Movement Maker Book

“It is in the midst of these disruptions (COVID-19) that we can awaken to the realization that we need a boldly innovative way forward, a paradigm shift in the way we operate to navigate and thrive in these new realities…this book couldn’t be more timely for established businesses as it calls for transformation from within, a capital light operational discipline before moving capital heavy and a real focus on our internal powers as a company and business leaders.”
– Marwan Fawaz, Executive Advisor, Google and Alphabet
