I’m the author of The Art of the Sale , published in the UK as Life’s a Pitch, and Ahead of the Curve – Two Years at Harvard Business School, published outside the US as What They Teach You at Harvard Business School. I was born in Dacca, Bangladesh, where my father worked as a Church of England missionary and my mother spent four years after leaving Burma with her family. I grew up in England, received my BA in Classics from Oxford and my MBA from Harvard Business School. From 1994 to 2004 I was a newspaper journalist. From 1998 to 2002, I was New York correspondent for The Daily Telegraph of London and from 2002 to 2004, Paris Bureau Chief. I left daily journalism in 2004 to go to business school. In addition to my books, I write regularly for The Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal and The Spectator. From 2009-2010, I spent several months at Apple Inc. writing case studies for Apple University, its internal management program, and now work with The Kauffman Foundation for Entrepreneurship and Education. Here’s an interview I did with the BBC World Service if you’d like to know more about me and my MBA book. I live in Connecticut.
