Fast Ice
Kurt Austin races to Antarctica to stop a chilling plot that imperils the entire planet in the latest novel from the #1 New York Times-bestselling Grand Master of Adventure. In the early days of World War II, the infamous German Luftwaffe embark upon an expedition to Antarctica, hoping to set up a military base to support their goal of world domination. Though the military outpost never comes to fruition, what the Nazis find on the icy continent indeed proves dangerous...and will have implications far into the future. In the present day, Kurt Austin and his assistant Joe Zavala head to the freezing edge of the world after a former NUMA colleague disappears in Antarctica. While there, they discover a photo of the Luftwaffe expedition of 1939, and are drawn into a decades-old conspiracy. Even as they confront perilous waters and frigid temperatures, they are also up against a terrifying man-made weapon--a fast-growing ice that could usher in a new Ice Age. Pitted against a determined madman and a monstrous storm, Kurt and the NUMA team must unravel the Nazi-era plot in order to save the globe from a freeze that would bury it once and for all.

Keeping Score

release date: May 06, 2020
Keeping Score
In Keeping Score, the author contends that metrics must be all-encompassing. They must focus not just on the present, but need to consider the past and future. They also must consider the needs of all participants, including customers, shareholders, and employees. Still one must know exactly what to measure, as measuring everything can be more damaging than measuring nothing. Taking a balanced Baldrige approach, this book shows how to evaluate current approaches to measurement and pinpoint false measurements. It covers the selection of financial metrics, ways to measure employee and customer satisfaction, and methods to track performance and measure quality.

Eventscapes

release date: Aug 27, 2019
Eventscapes
Eventscapes: Transforming Place, Space and Experiences directly examines the interrelation between events’ simultaneous dependence on and transformation of the places in which they are held. This event–environment nexus is analysed through a variety of international case studies including different kinds of well-known sporting and cultural events such as Vivid Sydney, the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics and the Tour Down Under international cycle race, among others. Chapters focusing on visual design explore the opportunities, at different spatial scales, to develop an event ‘look’ and the ways in which an event experience can be enhanced through connecting and engaging with the local culture and community. As well as the planning and management of events, the book draws on event experience, dramaturgically examining the roles played by authors, actors and the audience, and emphasises the participation of multiple groups in the co-creation of event experiences. This will be invaluable reading for those studying events and the environment. Adopting a multidisciplinary approach, it also draws on geography, urban and cultural studies, image studies, architecture and design, environmental psychology, and event management, and will be of use to a broad academic audience.

What they find at the bottom of the East China Sea, however, is even worse than they imagined: a diabolical plan to upset the Pacific balance of power--and in the process displace as many as a billion people. A rare alloy unlike anything else on earth, a pair of five-hundred-year-old Japanese talismans, an assassin so violent even the Yakuza has disowned him, an audacious technological breakthrough that will become a very personal nightmare for Kurt Austin--from the shark-filled waters of Asia to the high-tech streets of Tokyo to a forbidden secret island, the NUMA team must risk everything to head off the coming catastrophe.

Brand Activation: Implementing the Real Drivers of Sales and Profit

release date: Mar 14, 2016
Brand Activation: Implementing the Real Drivers of Sales and Profit
The days of brand activation are nearing an end. The future lies in customer activation. The concept of ‘brand activation’ has become an overused buzzword in the sales and marketing world. The term is becoming rapidly outdated, used to describe anything from mass media advertising and outdoor events to digital applications and in-store point of sale. Drawing on research, industry insights and real-life examples, the authors of Brand Activation: Implementing the Real Drivers of Sales and Profit argue that there is an urgent need to re-think the role and definition of activation in the modern marketplace. What is its link to actual purchases and, more importantly, how can it be measured? In an environment of unrelenting retail disruption in which the gap between brands and consumers is continually widening how do marketers identify – and measure – those factors that create the all important ‘moment of sale’? This is, after all, where real value begins for both the brand and the consumer. In their previous book, Death of the Salesman, the authors argued that the sales function is ripe for reinvention. In this book they take a deeper look at the sales process and how consumers are navigating the purchase journey in the current environment.
