Sep 12, 2009"A celebration of People Power " People Power is a fascinating compendium of Ferrabee's thoughts, musings, insights and anecdotes on employee communication, engagement, change and more. David covers a bewildering array of topics, from the impact of Sarbanes-Oxley on communicators, to the growing economic power of India, from CEO communication to crisis management. Indeed, there are very few subjects relating to our profession that he doesn’t touch upon. Content meanders between the serious and the sublime. David gets his teeth into some meaty subjects – his thoughts on the impact of poor redundancy communication, the importance of depth in CEO communications, disaster planning and reviewing your communication function are useful and thought-provoking. The entertainment is never far away though. Alongside the serious stuff you’ll find ramblings on Halloween, the Foo Fighters, Lily Allen, Ketamine and facial hair. Now that’s what I call eclectic. People Power has a... More > distinctly global flavour to it. Over the years Ferrabee has clocked up more Air Miles than Posh and Becks and it shows. An astute observer of global trends and cultural idiosyncrasies, he provides a rare and valuable insight in to the challenges communicators face when trying to do their thing across national boundaries. This is one of the big take-aways for me. So is this a useful addition to your bookshelf or PC desktop? Is it worth the cover price? The answer is a wholehearted yes. David Ferrabee is, for me, one of the leading thinkers in employee communications today. His views are insightful and his ramblings thought-provoking. He’s a great writer, with a style that’s both engaging and pacey. People Power is a rare find in our sometimes over-complicated and jargon-heavy world. It is educational and entertaining, insightful and fun to read. An assortment box it may be, but there is a consistent thread running through People Power. At its heart is Ferrabee’s belief that every employee deserves to be a hero. That may sound quaint, but, as David continues to demonstrate so well, it’s not a bad philosophy for an internal communicator to follow.< Less
Aug 25, 2008"The perfect gift for both the lover of communication and organisational psycopath" As a fellow professional communicator and business leader, I found Ferrabee's book a great easy-to-follow piece that helps less experienced communicators navigate their way through the maze. Great punchy style and funny too. I've given a copy of the book to people in my organisation who are very good at internal comms and those who could use a lot of help!
Aug 9, 2008"Cleverly written, eye-opening and filled with humor" A great overview of what is happening in major organizations today. Cleverly written, eye-opening and filled with humor. Should be read if you want to really understand why and how to get the "right conversation" going within your corporation. I highly recommended this book to students, professionnals and consultants in organisational communication and management who want to learn how to improve employees' engagement.
