There were stories in this book even I had never heard.
It was a very significant time in the company – as the Eisner-Wells duo was transforming not only the product the company was putting out, but the very way in which things were being produced.
This book does an extremely good job of pulling back the curtain and taking you backstage and into meeting rooms where key decisions were made – as well as those times where someone in charge had an impulsive idea and ran with it without first getting permission to do so (all the way to the White House). That era at Disney is Harvard Business School material. It remains a testament to what creative people can produce when they are given freedom to create.
And no company (to this day) does it like Disney.
Business School-student or Disney fan – you will LOVE this book.
The book follows the authors personal career path within the company to tell the incredible (and often humorous) tales behind the inception and execution of some of the Disney parks and studios most remembered publicity events, celebrations and promotions of all time. The recollections and perspectives of others who worked alongside Santoli are also included here.....adding valuable insight and fun.
While the first half of the book focuses on the company's promotional efforts to the outside public; in the second half we follow the author as she accepts the position as Director of the new Corporate Synergy program and is tasked with promoting the company within the company....and finding ways to get the numerous arms within it to work together for the benefit of all. The uphill battle towards accomplishing this is documented here.
In addition to many entertaining behind-the-scenes stories.....readers will also take with them some valuable knowledge on how to get individuals to work together towards mutual success and what can be accomplished with proper communication. It will certainly inspire anyone working within a team of any size or definition to consider putting into practice some of the very strategies responsible for awakening what was essentially a sleeping giant for many years and reviving it into the powerhouse Disney is today.
Highly recommended to Disney fans of all kinds, leaders, collaborators and anyone who thrives on creativity!
