The role of Chief People Officer (CPO) is both crucial and challenging, spanning diverse disciplines from HR to strategy. Our book fills the knowledge gap, providing a comprehensive framework and support system for current and aspiring CPOs.
Chief Operating Officer is one of the most complex senior management roles in organisations today. It embraces a range of disciplines, from Technology to Human Resources, from Legal to Risk.

‘A must-read guide for all aspiring COOs. Packed with practical insights and based on real life experiences, it gives a clear and powerful road map for this transformational organizational role’
Justin Forsyth, Deputy Executive Director, UNICEF
‘It is rare for a single book to command such breadth of expertise, practical insight and advice that is so easy to put into action. This is a consequence of the superb clarity of Jennifer’s writing, and the fact that she has earned her expertise – and the scars that come with it – from working on the business end of the stick for over twenty years.’
Mark Waddington, CEO, Hope and Homes for Children
