How to be a Complete and Utter Failure in Life, Work and Everything

How to be a Complete and Utter Failure turns the concept of self-improvement on its head. It brings together 43 and a half leading ideas in personal and business development, and offers a total antedote to the motivational, gung-ho, over-enthused tone of all the usual self-improvement guides. Delivered in fast, easily digestible chunks, in a style that makes you laugh while you learn, this book offers tongue-in-cheek advice about what not to do to ensure certain failure in every aspect of your life. From not having any goals, to not getting advice from people you've never met or who are dead, to not taking personal responsibility for your life and results, every idea, strategy, suggestion and story is guaranteed to propel you into the slow lane of total inadequacy and has been tested with thousands of real people. How to be a Complete and Utter Failure comes with a warning - that you don't think about taking the direct opposite steps to those outlined in the guide, as this could seriously damage your chances of becoming a failure. Behind the humour, though, is good advice and a serious message. And whether you choose to heed the warning or not, it's an extremely entertaining read.

Lloyds Banking Group

“Steve was great and had the room in fits of laughter!! It seemed like most of the group were really taking note of what he said and he had the main man chuckling! Personally, I was delighted at how well you nailed the mood of the day. I was confident you would, but you really did exceed my expectations. I love the style and delivery and it really worked with our team.”


Mercedes-Benz

“We contacted Steve at very late notice for an important slot at our Mercedes-Benz conference. With very little time to prepare and a somewhat sketchy brief he still managed to deliver two hours of compelling, entertaining and motivational material, as well as providing a raft of practical tools to take away.”


Morgan Stanley

“I wanted to thank you for a tremendous performance last night. I’ve had fantastic feedback. At coffee machines and in corridors, people have stopped me to comment on a great evening but also, how much they took away from your presentation. You left people with many memorable pieces of learning. You showed you understood our organisation which isn’t easy coming from outside and given we are often too insular, you gave us lots of examples from other industries and the everyday. You learn a lot more when the examples resonate as yours did. I thought the Mohammed Ali stories were terrific and the last one left the audience on a great high. So thank you for making the evening very memorable, good fun but with some serious learning at the same time.”


BT Group Property Director

“Steve McDermott is a not only a very funny, informative, inspirational and brilliant keynote speaker but just as good conference host. He helped plan and deliver our most memorable event ever. What makes him special is that, unlike celebrity conference hosts, he isn’t stuck to what it says in the script. His depth of knowledge and flexibity means he can add massive extra value to the whole proceedings.”


Smith & Nephew

“I am moved to write to you to express my sincere gratitude for all your help and support. The day exceeded my teams’ expectations and mine, and the feedback from everyone has been tremendous. Your professionalism, flexibility and humour helped provide a wonderful learning experience for us all.”


Unit4 Business Software

“Steve McDermott was guest speaker at our annual “Developer Day” conference where he presented on ideas and techniques to help individuals within organisations embrace change. Drawing on information gleaned throughout the day’s activities, Steve’s presentation perfectly rounded off our day where he both entertained and educated the audience leaving a lasting impression. I would recommend Steve to any organisation that wishes to open their minds to new ideas and new ways of thinking.”


University of Oxford

"Thank You for a very lively and thought provoking presentation. You certainly brought our day to an energetic close! Your contribution was a vital ingredient to everyone's enjoyment of the day, for which our grateful thanks and best wishes."


Macmillan Cancer Support

"The bar had been set very high by some excellent earlier sessions. Well, Steve vaulted over that bar with a fast paced, highly engaging and very funny session which sent everyone home smiling and with some great practical tips."


BP

"Everything was perfect. Steve was a very welcome diversion from some of the heavier items on the agenda, but that his content was very relevant to the issues being discussed. There was a great deal of humour in Steve's delivery and his objectives were obviously taken on board."
