From business definition, marketing and raising finance, to procurement, accountancy, IT, taxation and HR issues, he provides you with a comprehensive platform of information designed to give you a 'one-stop-shop' of mission-critical information.
Combining best practice advice with cogent strategies for growth and expansion, "Start Up and Run Your Own Business" has earned a deserved reputation for reliability and authority. The new edition continues this tradition, helping you make the most of your business venture.
