Summary

Despite the uncertainties of Brexit, London continues to be rated as a leading location in Europe and the world for business, knowledge, and talent. But 30 years ago, when London had no citywide government, a transport system in crisis, and no successful track record of continuous large-scale upgrades to the urban fabric, this scenario would have seemed highly unlikely.
In this essay we examine how London's unpromising 1980s gave rise to three decades of reinvestment and we explain how the European Investment Bank played an essential catalytic role in successive cycles of London's evolution from an under-governed de-populating national capital into a diverse global centre benefiting from integrated urban systems management.

     The marketing world isn't what it used to be. Simply creating a good product isn't enough, and standard advertisements now just get lost amongst all the others. To get people's attention and be truly successful, you've got to stand out and get noticed-just like a purple cow.
     
     
     
    Most of us wouldn't stop and stare at something mundane, like a herd of cows. But if one of those cows happened to be bright purple, it would draw attention far and wide. As an introduction to the modern marketing world, Purple Cow works on exactly that principle, teaching you how to create and market an extraordinary product that stands out from its ordinary competitors.
     
     
     
    You will learn:
     
     
     
    ·      That your best potential customers should be seeking you out, and not the other way around
     
    ·      Why catering your products and ads to the majority is the worst thing you can do
     
    ·      How to expand your business once you've created a successful product.
