David Bolchover is a management writer. He has written three business books, the latest being “Pay Check: Are Top Earners Really Worth It?” (Coptic, 2010). An updated edition was published in early 2012.
His first book was the international best-seller “The 90-Minute Manager” (Pearson Education, 2002), which looks at the lessons that business managers can learn from football managers. A third edition was released in June 2006.
His second book, “The Living Dead” (Capstone, 2005), counters the orthodoxy which holds that everyone in the modern world is overworked and stressed. The book was serialised in The Times and named as one of the “Books of the Year” in Management Today magazine.
David has also written extensively for The Times, The Sunday Times, The Daily Telegraph, The Economist Intelligence Unit, The Financial Times, The Commentator, The Guardian, and others about the world of work. He was “highly commended” in the Watson Wyatt Awards for Excellence in HR Journalism in both 2007 and 2008.
He frequently presents to companies and conferences on the subject of one of his books, as well as on a range of other topics relating to management and the workplace. He has been interviewed regularly on TV and radio, including appearances on BBC TV (“Breakfast” and “Newsnight”), Sky News, CNN, Radio Five Live, and Radio Four (“The Today Programme”, “PM” and “The World Tonight”). In January 2013, he appeared as a witness at the Parliamentary Commission on Banking Standards on the subject of remuneration.
In addition to his own material, David also assists several leading management consultancies with their written insights into the business world.
Prior to his writing career, he worked for twelve years in the international insurance industry. He has an MBA (Finance) from Cass Business School, and a Master’s degree from the London School of Economics. He speaks fluent Russian.
