  • A Customer Strategy Expert (review from Amazon)

    From an author who has specialised in customer strategy and transformation at a practical level in operations and programmes across the world, over many decades - an accessible and astute book on digital customer insight, growth, interaction and allegiance.

    Mr Grant has worked extensively in multiple countries in Europe, Asia and Africa, dealing with both start ups and established companies, and he brings decades of successful front line customer operations management experience to these pages.

  • RNF

    I'm only part way through, but at this point, I can confidently say that ‘In Demand in Command’ provides an insightful perspective with regards to operating effectively within the digital space, expanding my view on the value of reinforcing good operational and business practise with a solid and considered customer centric approach. Behaviours I thought I already practised, but now recognise I could and should be doing more.

  • Simon C Turpin

    I have known the Author for well over 20 years and count him as friend and colleague, as such I have seen this knowledge being implemented in companies internationally. He has taken hard earned real life successful expertise and made it available for all. A great update on what used to be a dark art!
