“As someone who likes sport and working to help small businesses to achieve growth, I found Chris’s writing style easy to read and digest. Premiership Business has the reader “eavesdropping” on an aspirational young man Jason (who I couldn’t help but put Chris’s face and voice on!) as his wise and wealthy Uncle Alan explains the formula needed for business people to succeed. It has plenty of useful details and diagrams to encourage the reader to go back to and utilise in their own businesses. Whilst set in the UK this story and the information it contains is very relevant to the small business owner in Victoria and across Australia.”
