Just a few of the reviews on The New Corporate Facts of Life:

"True leaders... need to embrace it {change}."

“Constant change is the new normal, and the 21st century business environment requires a new level of flexibility. True leaders can’t opt out of adapting and responding to change, they need to embrace it. ‘The New Corporate Facts of Life’ clearly lays out the demands of this new world and how to take advantage of the opportunities it provides.”

"Lashings of practical common sense..."

"A solid, tried and tested framework for corporate sustainability; inspiring case studies, that get right to the heart of what makes for success in this challenging world; and lashings of practical common sense: that’s what you get with Diana Rivenburgh and her book, The New Corporate Facts of Life."

Sir Jonathon Porritt

Co-Founder, Forum for the Future

"Diana demonstrates... how to create an environment that fosters a culture..."

“As leaders begin to rethink how they define ‘value’ at their organization, it’s critical to build a culture that embraces change, encourages debate, and engages a broad group of stakeholders. Diana demonstrates not only why these new skills are important, but also how to create an environment that fosters a culture that uses them to create a competitive advantage.”

"This Book Deserves to Be On Every CEO's Desk..."

“The New Corporate Facts of Life takes us on a whirlwind tour of what leading companies are doing – and why – to compete in today’s complex, collaborative, innovation-driven marketplace. With vivid examples woven into an autobiographical narrative of discovery, it shows how environmental and social issues have become critical to business success in every sector. This book deserves to be on every CEO desk as a reminder that doing good for society is no longer driven only by regulatory or ethical considerations; it’s about doing even better for customers and shareholders. It’s about a smarter way to do business, a fact of corporate life this book brilliantly exposes.”

Presents a bulleted, action-item list on global business "to-do's"

"We all know that the global business environment is changing, technology is evolving, we must be agile and social, and so on.  But sometimes we may think, "A bulleted list of what's changing and how it affects my company, and some action items on how to deal with these changes, would be nice."  This is exactly what Rivenburgh presents to her readers."
