BUSINESS coach and mentor Peter Robinson has published his first book.

Secrets Of Business Value explains how a company’s best asset is expertise.

Mr Robinson, 67, of High Street, Nettlebed, runs Henley consulting firm Executive Portfolio and advises dozens of businesses across the Thames Valley.

His clients include Penny Badenoch, founder and owner of Sno and Sun Gear, and John Wellburn, managing director of the Refer-On networking organisation.

Mr Robinson also mentors the fund-raising team at the Sue Ryder hospice in Nettlebed and sponsors its annual Big Wigs challenge.

He was previously chief executive of Hitachi’s UK operation and was a senior manager for IBM and Fujitsu.

He said: “Those of you who have written their first book will be aware of the excitement I feel. Like having a child, I am keen to let everyone know.

“I have distilled my experiences as a business mentor and executive coach by bringing together ideas and techniques, successfully adapted for my clients. I have also had a long career in the so-called corporate world, mostly in sales, marketing and general management.

“Now, like many of us, I am a corporate refugee and have been doing my own thing for nearly 10 years. As a consequence, the book contains a number of anecdotes, mini-case studies and many client examples of great approaches — and not so great approaches — to increasing the value of a business, especially in the buisness to business and business to consumer services sectors.”

* Secrets Of Business Value costs £19.99 and is available at
