Meet Ian Mann – ‘strategy midwife’ by day, business book reviewer at night

Ian Mann, MD of Gateways Business Consultants, is well-known to regular listeners of The Money Show (702/CapeTalk; from 6.00pm to 8.oopm) for his business book reviews on a Mondays (after 7.00pm).

Some of his most recent reviews include a book on the unexpected truth behind humanity’s most amazing inventions and another about Generation Z (those born around the mid-2000s) being humanity’s best hope for solving our largest challenges and realising our greatest opportunities.

Mann is a business consultant. He founded Gateways Business Consultants in 1990.

Mann refers to himself as a “strategy midwife”; he helps companies “give birth” to their best ideas.

Mann’s greatest strength, according to Gateways Business Consultants, is his ability to communicate sophisticated and complex ideas in an easily understood, stimulating and engaging manner.

Mann is probably the only business consultant on Earth to offer a 100% money back guarantee, no questions asks, if clients are not happy.
