Win Copies of Steven Overman’s new book, The Conscience Economy

Steven Overman, CMO of Kodak and mentor for The Marketing Academy has written a brilliant new book focusing on why ‘doing good’ matters as much as ‘doing well’. The Conscience Economy: How a Mass Movement for Good is Great for Business is a 5 star Amazon book and Steven has been kind enough to give us copies of 2 books to give away to The Marketing Academy Community.

The Conscience Economy is the must-read guide to this unprecedented shift in human motivation and behaviour. Steven Overman provides context, inspiration and some basic tools to help readers reframe how they evolve and grow whatever it is they lead—whether it’s a community, a business, a product, or a marketing campaign. The implications of the Conscience Economy are not “soft.” Ignore it, and your consumer or voter base will rebel, using a host of free tools and cheap connectivity to spread their rejection to peers around the world in real time. Leverage it, and Conscience Culture is a wellspring of financial upside.  You can read more about the book and its reviews here.
