TakingStock - Lord and knight battle continues.

To the Reform Club in London’s Pall Mall, where TS helped celebrate the launch of Living Culture, a values driven approach to revitalising your company culture, the snappily titled tome by former KPMG consultant Jan Thornbury.

TS was delighted to hear that the book, peppered throughout by comments from Lord Sharman on how he brought the worlds of culture and KPMG together, has now reached the dizzy heights of 600th in amazon.com’s worldwide bestseller list.

Expect the paperback to be out soon.

Over a particularly good claret, Lord Sharman let slip his views on Sir Peter Kemp, the former senior Treasury civil servant who recently put the boot into Sharman’s report on central government auditing.

TS however gathers the feeling is mutual and with comments such as ‘pathetic’ and ‘nutter’ flying about we fully expect the lord and knight clash to rumble on.
