iUniverse congratulates Julia Ibbotson for winning the 2012 London Book Festival

iUniverse author Julia Ibbotson has just won the prestigious 2012 London Book Festival Biography prize for her excellent memoir, “The Old Rectory: Escape to a Country Kitchen.” This book is a complete departure from the first book that Julia self-published with iUniverse, this being the academically acclaimed “Talking the Walk: Should CEOs Think More about Sex?”, which Julia wrote in her professional capacity as Dr Julia Helene Ibbotson PhD, FHEA, renowned academic, researcher and writer.

This book takes an in depth view of the reasons why professional women are not achieving the success they desire and suggests ways that the situation can be changed. Evidence in this book looks at the possibility that there are gender differences in the way men and women managers talk in the workplace, which have the effect of undermining women’s chances of promotion to higher leadership positions. In other words, do women “talk the walk”? And should CEOs think more carefully about the gender balance of their management and leadership teams so that they can create more effective working groups fit for the economic issues of the twenty first century?
