Book PRSerialisationAuthor InterviewsContent CreationReviewsRadio

After co-founding the marketing agency Social Chain with friend and fellow university drop out Steven Bartlett, and growing it to a US$300 million turnover business with 750 staff in offices around the world, Dom was flying high as one of the UK’s most exciting and in-demand entrepreneurs. But behind the scenes, he was battling alcohol addiction and sabotaging everything in his life – from relationships, health, finances, and ultimately his career.

Sharing the lessons he’s learnt seven years on from his last drink, the book recalls the highs and lows of his journey to sobriety and what advice he’d give to anyone looking to change their relationship with alcohol. It also interrogates how ingrained drinking is in our society – and what we can do to change this for the better. From tackling stereotypes around sobriety being boring to examining how peer pressure and party culture has normalised unhealthy behaviours, I’m Never Drinking Again questions how we’ve got to this point and what we can do to rectify it.

In Breakthrough: A Story of Hope, Resilience and Mental Health Recovery, Dr. Ahmed Hankir delivers a unique and powerful insight into mental health recovery by tracing his own personal journey from impoverished and shunned psychiatric patient to award-winning consultant psychiatrist.

With extraordinary candour, Ahmed reveals the obstacles that nearly shattered his dreams of being a doctor – from the financial pressures to the discrimination he faced at the hands of his peers and educators – and the bullying, racism, and harassment he experienced throughout medical school, post-graduate specialisation and whilst working in the NHS.

The book also recalls his journey to recover from episodes of severe psychological distress and suicidal thoughts whilst at university, and how these experiences have shaped his career focus in psychiatry and suicide prevention. From experiencing a breakdown/breakthrough at medical school to winning the World Health Organisation’s Director General Award for Global Health in honour of his work campaigning for mental health destigmatisation and humanization of persons living with a mental health condition, Dr Hankir’s story of recovery is an inspirational tale of resilience and hope amidst adversity and disadvantage.

Ahmed is a well-known mental health advocate who uses his lived experiences to educate, support and dignify others, with over 100k followers on both Twitter/X and Tik Tok. As a proud British Muslim, he is also an expert on challenging Islamophobia and mental health related stigma in the Muslim community.

No Silver Bullet: Bursting the bubble of the organisational quick fix

Steve Hearsum

Released: 29.03.2024

Book PRThought Leader PR

Organisations and those that lead them face many challenges. The more complex they are, the greater the need to find someone – anyone – who can offer a solution, and preferably a guaranteed, quick one. This is the myth of fixability, the idea that there can be a Silver Bullet for complex problems. The market for them is underpinned by a mixture of shame and anxiety, and a resultant collusion between the buyers and sellers of quick fixes.

In No Silver Bullet, Steve Hearsum lays out the false hopes of Silver Bullets, the psychological reasons why they exist and persist and their sources (poor business education, the thought leadership industry, the veneration of methodologies, and clever packaging of ideas to name a few). He explores why both leaders and those that sell them solutions are drawn to the idea of Silver Bullets and why they often fall short over time.

Without offering Silver Bullets of his own, Steve explains how buyers and sellers are engaged in a futile dance and offers some practical suggestions on how better to respond. For those that buy (leaders, managers, executive teams) and those that sell to them (consultants, solution providers, business schools, thought leaders and gurus), this book is a timely provocation in an age where binary either/or thinking is the order of the day, and nuance is eschewed in favour of certainty, when the challenges we face require a more thoughtful and integrative approach.

Inspired by author Sophie Williams’ viral TED talk on the same subject, this book is the first commercial exploration of the social phenomenon known as the Glass Cliff – a shocking pattern of hidden bias against women in the workplace.

Based on nearly two decades of global research, the Glass Cliff is a proven phenomenon where women are frequently appointed to leadership positions in struggling businesses, restricting their chances of success from the outset.

But it doesn’t need to be this way. Not all is lost. By understanding the Glass Cliff, and by telling one another about it, we can affect the conversation, we can empower one another to overcome societal bias and, ultimately, we can change the world
