Among the many enthusiastic responses to Up the Corporate Ladder are the following:

“Success in the workplace is not just dependent on intellect or technical skills. It is highly dependent on a set of behavioural standards that mirror the values and the brand of the company and that set you aside as a ‘class act’ … This book is invaluable for business people who are seeking to refresh their skills and brand themselves as professionals.” – Italia Boninelli, Group Human Resource Director, Netcare.

“In a world of limited second chances, Elsabe’s book is a welcome contribution to the increasing number of emerging professionals and entrepreneurs who have to compete on a global stage.” – Tim Modise.
