У меня вопрос.
Во время недавнего посещения Таллина руководители Эстонского центра креативной экономики настоятельно рекомендовали нам украинцам начинать процесс внедрения идей креативной экономики с просветительства ( даже не с образования).
Очень хвалили тренера мирового класса Девида Перриша и его две книги. Кстати, одна из них называется “Футболки и костюмы”. В нашем варианте (http://chernozem.info/?p=467) мы , ещё не догадываясь о её существовании, воплотили тендем культуры и бизнеса в комиксах Alevtina Kakhidze и Volodymyr Babiuk с корпоративными героями Арти и Кэш )) Книги очень понятные и наглядные, так сказать для “чайников” в вопросах креативной экономики.
Я связался с Дэвидом и получил достаточно лояльные условия получения авторских прав на издание этих книг, которые позволяют предлагать их по 200-250 грн каждая (на Амазоне – 15 GBR соответственно).
Вопрос звучит просто: это кому-нибудь интересно и нужно?))
Если нужно, пишите в личку – учтётся и зачтётся )))


Вчера я обращался к Вам , коллеги, с вопросом : издавать или не издавать две книги английского гуру по креативной экономике Дэвида Перриша? Решение принято: издавать. Скажу больше: Дэвид оказался огромным симпатиком Украины – он поддержал идею создания нами Всеукраинского гражданского объединения “Креативная Украина”, в конференции, посвященной презентации которого в конце сентября в Киеве с удовольствием примет участие вместе с другими европейскими коллегами. Следите за анонсами. Конструктивные предложения – в личку

I have a question.
During a recent visit to Tallinn, the Estonian Central leaders of the creative economy is highly recommended to us Ukrainians begin the process of implementing the ideas of the creative economy to enlightenment (even with education).
It is a world-class coach praised David Parrish and his two books. By the way, one of them called “shirts and suits.” In this embodiment (http://chernozem.info/?p=467) we still unaware of its existence, embodied Tandy culture and business in the comics Alevtina Kakhidze and Volodymyr Babiuk corporate heroes Artie and Cash)) The book is very clear and visual, so to speak for the “dummies” in matters of the creative economy.
I got in touch with David and had enough loyal conditions for obtaining copyright for the publication of these books, which allow us to offer them at 200-250 USD each (on Amazon – GBR 15, respectively).
The question is simple: there is someone who is interesting and necessary?))
If necessary, write in a personal – will take into account and be counted)))
