10 Out of the Bottle Webb, Graham
UK The Webb Press, Ltd 2005 0954870905 / 9780954870904 Hard Copy Near Fine Very Good+ 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Inscribed By Author
The Webb Press, Ltd, UK, 2005. "Updated in February 2005 and July 2005". Inscribed by author on bookplate on front free end page with "To Prescilla: With love [signed] Graham Webb/x" Book is in Near Fine condition. Dust jacket is in Very Good+ condition: slight rubbing on edges; light scratches on rear. From the publisher: "'Out Of The Bottle' tells the story of Graham Webb. A high school dropout at age fifteen, he grew up in London, in government subsidised housing, and overcame the challenges of congenital spina bifida to forge a name in the world of business and haircare. Graham is the figurehead of globally distributed, multi million dollar hair care company Graham Webb International. The company was sold to Wella in 2001, who themselves were purchased by Proctor and Gamble in 2003. This is the compelling account of Graham's personal and professional struggles and accomplishments that will resonate with all readers. An instinctive entrepreneur, the teenage Graham ignored sixty-two job application rejections, and went on to build a successful career in the UK; and in the USA with his business partner Robert Taylor, the man behind the blockbuster successes of Softsoap; and the Obsession and Eternity fragrances. After being appointed chairman of the Institute of Directors (Kent) and serving on councils of the Confederation of British Industry, Graham was asked by patron HRH Prince Andrew, and Lord Kingsdown, to be honorary chairman of the NSPCC Kent 'Full Stop Campaign' (the National Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Children). Graham rose above the medical problems he kept secret, gained confidence, and despite doctors expectations, became a happily married father of four children after marrying his best friend Mandy - his wife of thirty three years. With tales of his unpredictable encounters with scores of famous and influential musicians, Graham describes how he balanced drumming professionally in rock'n'roll bands with building his own global business from scratch. The motivational story 'Out Of The Bottle' is embroidered with entrepreneurial insights, humorous anecdotes and startling coincidences."
