Former Waitrose managing director and government minister Lord Mark Price highlights good and bad business practice through a series of true stories gathered over a 35-year career.

Price’s book contains 147 fables divided into 10 chapters. Together they amount to the lessons of a lifetime in business and range from the good, bad, and inventive to the hilariously stupid. Price is a strong believer that the more you nourish employees the more a business flourishes. He also talks about why he built the EngagingWorks website to help people make the most of their working life.

Price is a former managing director of Waitrose and former deputy chairman of the John Lewis Partnership. Last year, he was made a life peer and joined the Government as Minister for Trade and Investment. Until recently, he was Minister of State for Trade Policy in the new Department for International Trade.

Here he talks to Andrew White, associate dean for executive education and corporate relations at Saïd Business School and a fellow of Green Templeton College.

In association with Saїd Business School, University of Oxford.
