Part Two – Growth Champions

As well as background analysis and research, we interviewed a wide range of individuals for these case studies: Some on the record and others off. Rather than reference every quote, within the core text we have highlighted the views that have come from specific individuals. Other quotes in each chapter are taken either ‘off the record’ or from the publications and media coverage that we have identified below against each company. For further reading on these organizations and their growth activities, alongside the respective company websites and annual reports, we would therefore recommend the following resources:
