About the Author:

Brendan Reid is an accomplished business consultant and marketing executive who has built his career by breaking with corporate convention. For nearly 20 years he has studied the too-often-ignored human side of corporate dynamics that create the imperfect corporate world we work in. Unlike most business writers, who focus on the righteous side of business and career management, Reid delves into
the more unconventional tactics people use to get ahead and stay ahead. In Stealing the Corner Office he draws on his experiences as a struggling middle manager and the startling revelations that became
the foundation for the career strategy that catapulted him into the executive ranks. Reid lives in Toronto, Ontario.
