'The Wiki Man' by Rory Sutherland
9 November, 2011
Available to buy from www.thewikiman.co.uk
Rory Sutherland’s first book ‘The Wiki Man’ is out today. One of marketing’s most original thinkers and influential speakers, Rory is a leading light in the advertising industry and as outspoken as he is creative. A champion of behavioural economics and an early adopter of new technologies, his collection of his cravats is as legendary as his appetite for chicken jalfrezi.
Described as the worst graduate trainee that Ogilvy & Mather had ever hired, Rory took a while to find his calling in life. From unlikely beginnings as a classics teacher to his current job as Vice Chairman of Ogilvy Group UK, Rory’s rise through the ranks is as unconventional as his dress sense.
Bruno Giussani, European Director at TED had this to say about the book: "I just finished Rory's book and I found it very insightful, a kind of debunk-the-bullshit primer. I know many people who would benefit from having a copy in their hands -- and, for once, from actually reading it."
The Wiki Man attempts to give an insight into Rory’s unique character and personality, through a winding journey of blog posts, interviews, tweets and reference materials, to give a rich and engaging introduction to Rory’s unique mind.
