Own Your Industry is a guide to what you can do to position yourself as the "go-to name" in your industry. Because when you are known as the expert, the icon, the thought leader - the business will come to you.

Learn how to build an industry reputation, use media channels to reach your market, and communicate complex ideas through memorable frameworks.

Clear, to the point and Actionable.

Douglas is able to explain the importance of his points very clearly with humour and a whole arsenal of speaking / writing techniques.
If you're a professional, international change agent or a local dog trainer, it's relevant to you.
Highly recommended.
