Travels with an inflatable elephant
By Jerry Marshall

Book, £12.99 / Kindle Edition, £6.18


Jerry Marshall believes in setting at least one audacious goal every year. Recent goals include attempting to save the government £50 billion, and setting up a call centre in Bethlehem to create jobs unaffected by border closures. He’s a serial entrepreneur and a sailing fanatic, has fought with Pete Waterman on breakfast TV and once won a unicycling race.

This book is about hard-won lessons in entrepreneurial leadership applied to many different spheres, including social enterprise, fighting poverty and political campaigning. It’s a story of money, sex, family, faith and inflating large white elephants.

‘Jerry Marshall takes us into a surreal world where charitable endeavour entwines with business imperative. His story is fast-paced, funny and deadly accurate.’

Lord David Freud

‘Jerry Marshall has used his God-given entrepreneurial flair throughout his whole life … Laced throughout it all you can see his quick mind and deep connection with God at work.
