Marie Curie provides care to terminally ill patients in their own homes or in hospices, while offering support to their families. With 2,000 nurses, last year they worked for 1,300,000 hours caring for terminally...

Simon’s focus is on how a very small number of businesses and leaders get far better results than the rest of their field because they go about it in the opposite way from...
