Telling the true story of the publishers’ attempt to navigate the choppy waters of changing ways of working combined with high levels of uncertainty, the talk covers George Harrison, Keswick Pencil Museum, the philosopher Karl Popper and Middlemarch by George Eliot. Along the way, three key lessons that were learned the hard way are shared, to help you avoid making the same mistakes.
