In his book ‘It’s All About Clout,’ Max draws on his interactions with highly successful people to identify what he thinks they have in common. He concludes that it’s down to their ‘clout’ which he then breaks down to six characteristics that anyone can develop. His starting position is that we are driven by fear more than hope and the trick is to turn that to your advantage.
Max continues to lift the lid on success with his popular ‘Cloutology’ blog, podcast and Instagram feed where he offers advice, analysis and interviews with those who have made it in their chosen fields. His talks on the subject are as enlightening as they are challenging and audiences come away feeling invigorated and inspired.
