Greg Savage knows about leadership. Greg is a founder of four highly successful businesses in the recruitment. He has led start-ups to IPO, navigated businesses through a recession, the boomtimes and the global financial crisis. He has been headhunted to lead in global recruitment businesses. Most of all Greg is a communicator. He is probably the most respected voice across the global recruitment and professional services industries, and a regular keynote speaker at conferences around the world.

Throughout his impressive career, Greg has connected with thousands of people: * Greg’s blog, The Savage Truth, has more than 10,000 active subscribers, with close to a million page views a year. It has been nominated for at least 20 ‘best blog of the year’ awards. * Greg has more than 300,000 LinkedIn followers and was named one of LinkedIn’s ‘top voices’ – only 280 people out of their 600 million members are considered influential. * In an article entitled ‘Who is Australia’s Most Influential Business Voice on Twitter Now That Rupert Murdoch Has Left The Party? Greg was described as: ‘No.1 in the small business world’.”

The Savage Truth is the story of Greg Savage, his stellar career in recruitment and the lessons he has learned on leadership, business and life over a career spanning four decades. Honest, open and humorous, The Savage Truth is a must-read for lovers of business biography.

The Savage Truth is a playbook for managers, leaders, business owners...
It takes the complex and makes it simple, relatable and executable.
Read this book. Read it again, and never put it away.

Charles Cameron, CEO, RCSA Australia & New Zealand

To have such knowledge and commentary all captured in one document
is very special. This book is a great read, written from the heart.

Julie Mills, MD, APSCo Australia

Greg's natural, infectious enthusiasm is captured perfectly in his book
and, after reading it, you will want to follow the 'Pied Piper'.

Geoff Morgan AM, CEO, Suite Black Pty Ltd, Co-founder of Morgan & Banks and Talent2

The Savage Truth could be regarded as a 'bible' for how to succeed in business.
I for one will make this compulsory reading in my own organisation
- it is exciting and inspirational.
