Whether you're a student, jobseeker, professional, new to the workforce or just stuck in a rut, this book is your guide through the hurdles of the career journey to a big life. As a father of seven, Alex knows that this is the perfect book for parents or mentors looking to inspire the next generation.

The Naked CEO helps graduates, jobseekers, and professionals learn the lessons and limit their mistakes.

Learn how to: * Become a leader * Successfully stand out and get noticed * Harness the power of being yourself * Network and create a profile * Establish rapport with colleagues and turn around an under-performing team * Get organised, spot opportunities, and learn how to say no * Set priorities, build confidence, learn how to delegate, and more

The Naked CEO is the truth you need to build a big life.
