Be aware of the “Super trends”, or risk falling behind!

In this blog, I am sharing some highlights about a newly released book that I would like to promote. It is a must-read for any business leader, and especially those focusing on Sales & Marketing. It was published by ProSales Institute, and was written by Henrik Larsson-Broman, and Peter Siljerud, who both are thought leaders in their respective fields. I have had the pleasure to work with Henrik during 7 years in the past, and have always been impressed by the quality of ProSales' research when it comes to sales, marketing, leadership, and the evolution of global trends affecting business. This book "Supertrenderna" was originally written in Swedish, and is translated to English as “The Super Trends”

I will give only give you an overview of the content of the book in this blog. In later blogs or articles, my intention is to make a summary of each one of these super trends, based on my interpretation. Hopefully, it will create some discussions, and encourage more people to buy the book, which I totally recommend all of you to do. I cannot do the book justice in my subsequent series of blogs, only give you a glimpse and hopefully create some interest. These trends are too important to ignore!
