    007: Delayed Trains, Confidence and Rock 'n' Roll Admin: How to write non fiction.

    007: Delayed Trains, Confidence and Rock 'n' Roll Admin: How to write non fiction.

    Ian speaks with Michael Brown Author of the Business Book award winning 'I Don't Agree'.
    A fascinating insight into process and experience of writing a non-fiction book for business.
    Michael Brown is a business founder, a long-term managing director, part of the leadership group of an organisation of over 4,000 people, and a social enterprise pioneer – helping to create, launch and lead what is thought to be the world’s first mental health drop-in centre inside a soup kitchen. Michael’s interest in the psychology of conflict and compromise arose after spectacularly falling out with his fellow shareholders in a business he led for a decade. The lessons he learned positively informed the culture of his next venture, now an international marketing organisation, and gave rise to I Don’t Agree.
