Perceptric publishes non-fiction books. Our goal is to provide a platform for writers who wish to share their valuable real life experiences with a global audience. The books that we publish are primarily released as e-books. We focus on providing valuable content for people who want to understand how business systems function, how political and economic systems function, and who need to unlearn a lot of things that they have been taught in academia which may not be relevant in the real world.

Currently in development are books covering the following topics:

  • How to develop a personal UVP that truly differentiates you. This book is motivated by my work with Arts undergraduates over a number of years. You can position yourself for success by using by gaming the system. Why not use the way the system actually works in order to be successful? Our forthcoming book show you how.
  • The Transition Project. This is now out. The research project that Chris Gilbey runs with PhD candidates in the field of nanomaterials science to investigate the strategies of businesses in Australia that are likely landing places for PhD graduates. This research project aims to engender a changing research culture in Australia that leads to improved research outcomes for Australia and for Australian businesses.
  • Merdeka. This book, written by Stephen Hill, details his experience in managing a hostage crisis in Papua while he was a senior exectutive with UNESCO. One of Stephen’s employees, a woman, was captured by rebels and held hostage just after she found out she was pregnant. The rebels intended to keep her until her baby was born and to then use the baby as a battle mascot to protect them from the bullets of the Indonesian military that they were fighting against. A riveting and absolutely true story of politics, intrigue, double dealing and the clash of cultures between stone age tribespeople and a modern military power.

Merdeka will be released in November 2014
