Reviews for Sophie Devonshire’s book Superfast: Lead at Speed

“Sophie Devonshire is a self-professed “acceleration addict” who is reaching out to like-minded readers who want to see their businesses grow at supersonic rates. She’s seen the frustration of leaders whose enterprises don’t match the fast pace of today’s business environment, and is here to help with tools that will light a fire under teams and organizations. If your business feels like it’s moving at a turtle’s pace, try SUPERFAST — it will bring you up to speed.”
(Daniel Pink, author of DRIVE and WHEN)

“To succeed in today’s fast changing environment, leaders need to better balance agility with resilience. Purpose and pace are required requisites. Superfast:Lead at Speed will help you do this” (Paul Polman, Global CEO, Unilever)

“Vision, values and velocity are all successful components of successful leadership in a rapidly changing business landscape. Sometimes you need to go slow to go fast. If you want to avoid running at 100 mph in completely the wrong direction, this book will help kickstart your thinking.” (Sarah Wood, Co-Founder and Chair, Unruly.)

“Leading at speed is essential in a world of accelerating change, complexity and uncertainty. When the one thing you’re sure of is that things will change, the way we lead people has to change too.” (Matt Brittin EMEA President, Google)

“Sophie’s obsession with speed and acceleration in business is infectious… I could not recommend her more highly.” (Brad Goodall, Founder and CEO, Spung)
