Ian Tomlin – In Print

Ian’s first book ‘CEO’s Guide to Business Agility’ written in 2004, describes the move from legacy to modern agile organizational design.  In 2006 he wrote his second book on the topic of business social marketing and its move into the cloud, then a new concept of computing on the horizon. ‘Cloud Coffee House’ was followed by his third book ‘Social Operating Systems’ (2009) predicting the future evolution of what have now become comprehensive online platforms like Office365 and Google G-Suite.

In 2014, he turned his attention to the subjects of personal development and brand management publishing two guides, one giving advice to newcomers entering the business world on how to achieve more from their careers.  This led to the creation of the AboveAndBeyond range of guidebooks for executives.  

He writes fictional novels under the pseudonym of Christian J. Browning.
