It is great to see IAITAM booking a heavy hitter to keynote their annual conference this year. Andy Andrews is a New York Times best selling author and opens the IAITAM Conference on the 20th October in Nashville, Tennessee.
I recommend Andy’s book The Noticer. At times I found it a bit sugary for my tastes (To be expected from a British male immersed in the dry subject of ITAM?) and a little confusing as the story weaves in an out of fiction, but otherwise it is an easy, quick and enjoyable read.
Andy’s message is that “Sometimes, all a person needs is a little perspective”. I personally gained a great deal from his analogy of dialects and I believe there are nuggets of wisdom for everyone in his book, whether professional or personal, on how a change of perspective can help us all through challenges in life.
