            Peter Cox is a very passionate person. He is driven to help people reach their full potential. The phrase 'it can't be done' does NOT exist within Peter's DNA. I first met Peter in 1991 and am proud to call him my friend. His unique style is very special. I often hear the saying ...to 'walk the talk', well Peter 'walks the talk' - nobody walks the talk like Peter Cox. I have travelled the world and met some of the greatest speakers and so-called gurus to ever live - Peter Cox can hold his head high to be counted amongst some of the best. Greg Owen CEO, GOKO GROUP, host of the Millionaire Book series I've known Coxey since 2014 when I asked him to challenge me in all areas of my life to grow my leadership and accountability so that I could be the best Head Coach for the South Sydney Rabbitohs. His Leadership Dynamics process provided tremendous value for me and the NRL squad, contributing to South Sydney winning their first Premiership in 43 years, growing people and growing culture. He lives his life through his values and we continue our professional NRL journey together currently with the Wests Tigers NRL Rugby League Club and the New Zealand International Team. Over the last 5 years, our relationship has continued to grow built on great respect, loyalty and trust. Coxey's Leadership principles have also enabled me to change the dynamics of the way I coach in my profession and I highly recommend this book and his Leadership Dynamics process coming into your business model and your people's lives. Michael Maguire, Head Coach, West Tigers NRL Team, and Head Coach, New Zealand International Rugby League Team Coxey has a passion and determination to empower others that is rarely seen. His discipline displays a genuine commitment to results. Everything little detail speaks, and Coxey is the prime example of professionalism in all that he is and does. Having spent time in getting to know him, Coxey was the perfect choice as the Leadership Expert on the Tradiematepro platfo

            An award-winning Financial Times columnist exposes the threat that Big Tech poses to our democracies, our economies and ourselves Today Google and Facebook receive 90% of the world's news ad-spending. Amazon takes half of all ecommerce in the US. Google and Apple operating system...s run on all but 1% of cell phones globally. And 80% of corporate wealth is now held by 10% of companies - not the GEs and Toyotas of this world, but the digital titans. How did we get here? How did the tech industry get to dominate our world so completely? How did once-idealistic and innovative companies come to manipulate elections, violate our privacy, and pose a threat to the fabric of our democracy? In Don't Be Evil, Financial Times global business columnist Rana Foroohar documents how Big Tech lost its soul - and became the new Wall Street. Through her skilled reporting and unparalleled access - won through nearly 30 years covering business and technology - she shows the true extent to which the 'Faang's (Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and Google) crush or absorb any potential competitors, hijack our personal data and mental space and offshore their exorbitant profits. What's more, she reveals how these threats to our democracies, our livelihoods and our minds are all intertwined. Yet Foroohar also lays out a plan for how we can resist, creating a framework that fosters innovation while also protecting us from the dark side of digital technology.

            Sabotage: The Business of Finance

            Sabotage: The Business of Finance (Hardback)

            'I don't like the word sabotage ,' - a former Goldman Sachs trader admitted. 'It's just harsh...Though, frankly, how else do you make money in this business... I mean, real money...' Financial malpractice, we're told, is an aberration: the actions of a few bad apples deviating fr...om the norms of a market-governed process and gaming the system. In Sabotage, political scientists Anastasia Nesvetailova and Ronen Palan blow this fiction apart, showing that sabotage is not an anomaly, but part of the business model of finance - and always has been. Abusive lending practices, misleading investors, manipulating prices, deliberately falsifying figures, cheating, obstruction and taking advantage of 'the dumbest person in the room' - they're actually the main source of profitability in finance, and the surest way to a bonus. If you want to make money in the industry, you need to find ways of sabotaging either your clients, your competitors or the government (or all three), and above all, the market itself. Talking to industry insiders, economists and high net worth customers, examining the history of finance and its workings today, the authors show us how the idea of sabotage not only makes sense of all past economic crises, but must also be at the heart of all future regulations.
