Dr Mark Powell and Jonathan Gifford, co-authors of The Five Principles of Performance Thinking, have unique experience of the world of business and the performing arts.
Mark is a business writer and entrepreneur who has been a business and strategy consultant for over 30 years. He had a successful parallel career as a competitive Latin American dancer, winning over 50 titles including two British and two World Championships.
Jonathan is a business author who played saxophone professionally for several years before starting work as a Fleet Street advertising man, later moving into magazine publishing with BBC Magazines. He continued to play semi-professionally throughout his business career.
They came independently to the same conclusion: that the way they worked with their fellow artists to put on a performance was different from the way they worked with their business colleagues, and that the way they worked as artists was better: more collaborative; more energised; more creative; focussed on the objective of delivering a brilliant, audience-pleasing performance. Their co-authored books explore ways of re-imagining corporate culture for the modern era and show how much business can learn from the performing arts.
