Taking a step back to analyse the personality and leadership model of Pep Guardiola, ex-coach, of FC Barcelona, Miguel Ángel Violán reflects the teaching style of Pep in his book, “The Guardiola Method: why leaders with common sense get uncommon results.” Violán is a Guardiola fan to the core and though he may not believe Guardiola is perfect, he considers Guardiola’s metholody applicable to both on the field and in the workplace.

Christine graduated with a law degree but pursued a modelling career. She has travelled the world, lived in beautiful cities and worked with the famous photographer, Helmut Newton. Christine’s career wasn’t always wonderful and a chance encounter with Colonel Gaddafi proved her journey as a model to be tougher than magazine photo-shoots and runway walks. After 10 years of modelling, she is now a mother of two and has written her first book, “The Stories Models Never Tell”. Christine Hart aims to shed light onto the reality of the modelling world.
