From nurturing your personal network and getting noticed, to the art of outsourcing and understanding numbers, she distills a lifetime's experience of running businesses and shaping careers into original, practical advice. Whether you're just starting out or a rung from the top, whether you're a store manager or a CEO, let Mrs Moneypenny be your ultimate mentor - and guide you to success.
