Practical Inspiration triumphs at the Business Book Awards 2022

This year’s Business Book Awards gala evening took place on 16 May, celebrating the best business books from around the world published in the previous year. The finalists in 15 categories had been selected by a distinguished panel of judges from over 300 titles submitted by traditional and independent publishers, and even some self-published titles.

Practical Inspiration Publishing had an incredible 11 titles shortlisted, and the evening was very much about celebrating that achievement. However we were delighted to discover that Practical inspiration authors took the top award in two categories!

Congratulations to all the authors involved, and particularly to the award winners:

Janie Van Hool in Business Age

Business Age

‘If we feel we already know how a person will respond, then what’s the point of asking the question? All too often, it seems that we don’t ask and if we ask at all, we don’t listen to the response.’
An extract from Janie Van Hool‘s The Listening Shift in Business Age.

Business Age

We understand our own reasons for taking action, behaving in a certain way, holding the beliefs we do. This self-serving bias is hard-wired into our psyche so that from our own perspective, our decisions and behaviours are clear, rational and reasonable.
