Podcast 28: Alison Jones, Owner, Practical Inspiration Publishing
Alison Jones is the owner of Practical Inspiration Publishing and the host of her own highly successful and engaging podcast series called The Extraordinary Business Book club. Alison has a wealth of experience in publishing from being Director of Innovation Strategy at Macmillan to now running her own niche publishing company specialising in publishing business books.
I was particularly excited about interviewing Alison because not only is she my publisher but she is the person who persuaded me to start this podcast series. Alison role models the importance of providing exceptional value in business. She is all about building strong relationships. It is clear that no matter how you work with her, it’s always going to be a partnership.
Alison’s experience of how the publishing world has had to transform in response to technological disruption is a lesson to any business in any sector. I think the message is loud and clear: Get left behind at your peril. Adapt and do it quickly. Relationships and an entrepreneurial spirit will clearly get you far, no matter where you work.
