Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review In Non-Bullshit Innovation, Rowan combines the deeply researched narrative of a great investigative journalist with the practical punch of a top keynote speaker and delivers a book that is both a deeply engrossing read and a hugely valuable guide. No bullshit. * </i>Dan Cobley, serial entrepreneur, former Google UK MD * Perfectly observed, painfully funny and brutally honest, David Rowan has written a book which goes where no one dared to go. Its wisdom will save you a decade of heartache, confusion and self deception. It is the front line in the fight back towards sanity and the Innovation conversation can never be the same again. * </i>Mark Adams, Chief Innovation Officer, <i>VICE * In his meticulously researched and persuasive book, David Rowan makes a compelling case for what innovation really looks like. It's jam packed with tangible tips on how to create the right environment for good ideas to flourish and concrete examples of how the best in the world manage to make things that make a difference. -- Hannah Fry, author of Hello World: How to Be Human in the Digital Age
