"As we try and make sense of how to grow our businesses in a disrupted world, Martin has done the thinking for us. Here is a well-researched and practical guide on to how to build a sustainable and commercially successful business based around customer-centricity. An essential read for anyone, at any level, involved in selling products and services to customers."

"Customer centricity is one of those topics that's easy to talk about but hard to do. Martin does a brilliant job here of breaking this down into a thoughtful but eminently practical toolkit."
Director of the Natural History Museum, formerly CEO Amazon UK, President Amazon China
"A masterclass for anyone who has a genuine interest in improving the experience of their customers. It is full of real-life examples of brands who have lost their way, as well as those who have found a whole new way to excel. An insightful and practical read that is an enjoyable journey. So many powerful lessons from so many different sectors, delivered with authority."
MBE, Chairman, White Stuff
"A superb read for customer-centric leaders on a mission to embrace the best ways of leveraging and driving the new paradigm of how and why consumers buy and build your brand equity. Packed with insightful and comprehensive reference points, Martin has provided an excellent combination of a thought-provoking read and a pragmatic framework to implement."
"Another excellent book by Martin Newman - packed with helpful case studies and examples, providing easy-to-understand frameworks that can be applied in any business. The world is continuously changing, and Martin picks up on the shifts in consumer behaviour driven by global questions such as diversity and inclusion, climate change and the broader ethical questions of consumerism."
Online Director, Tesco
"If you are serious about transforming your business to become "customer centric" which only a few very successful companies truly managed to achieve, then this is your must-read book. Martin, in his typical authentic style, shows us the way with clarity and conviction; providing valuable, actionable insights and useful frameworks supported with numerous up-to-date case studies. For me, this a guidebook for retailers to thrive, not just survive."
ex COO Missguided
"Imagine working for an organization that creates value for customers, value for those in the organisation who create it, value for stakeholders and value for the Planet. Martin Newman is one of the few people I know who really understands the meaning of the word "value". This is a fantastic book that will show you how to create it."

"Another great read, truly focusing on the important elements to drive customer centricity. Martin once again highlights the key attention points of why the customer should be at the centre of all decision-making in terms of marketing, store layout and of course product. This book is a must read for all omni-channel retailers giving clear examples of why retailers have either won or lost. I will for one be giving it to all of my team."
