Who is the Noble Savage within Corporate Identity?
First published in 1936 and with 15 million copies sold worldwide, HOW TO WIN FRIENDS AND INFLUENCE PEOPLE was one of the first self-help books to ever hit the shelves, and it still resonates loudly today from modern management best practices to salespeople sealing the deal.
Theatre Encounter boiled out the essence of this classic book and presented the audience with a multidisciplinary, live art interpretation of Carnegie’s steps, rules and fundamentals on how to be successful and favoured in today’s society.
