With museums, theaters, and other forms of entertainment open to visitors, JP Morgan’s client advisers had a lot more to consider as they offered suggestions for the bank’s annual list of recommended books and experiences.
While last year’s virtual recommendations, including Quarantunes in Los Angeles and Planet Word in Washington, DC, no doubt created a diversion for customers confined to the pandemic, this year the bank could include six experiences of the real world for its “Next List” 2022.
Among them, pop-rock Six the musical on Broadway in New York, which was originally scheduled to open when the New York Theater closed in March 2020, and the contemporary art collection of Kering Group founder François Pinault, which is on display in a museum developed by Pinault, the Bourse de Commerce, in Paris.
The theme for this year’s list is a “world reimagined,” said Darin Oduyoye, communications director of JP Morgan Asset & Wealth Management. “We’re coming back to face-to-face events and a more normal life,” he says, and “we’re all looking for inspiration. Who do we turn to for that? The arts, cultural experiences, or a great book.
The bank’s “NextList 2022” recommendations include eight books and six experiments that were selected by a committee that reviewed recommendations from client advisers around the world to appeal to the diverse interests of its clients, many of whom are CEOs. business, art collectors and entrepreneurs. These are people who are “citizens of the world,” says Oduyoye.
The book’s recommendations include titles on leadership and business strategy, entrepreneurship, technology, spirituality, and medicine.
For thoughts on leadership, JP Morgan recommends The Heart of the Business: Principles of Leadership for the Next Era of Capitalism, by Hubert Joly and Caroline Lambert. Joly became CEO of Best Buy in 2012 and is credited with transforming the electronics retailer.
“The book deals with the heart and soul of what makes a business sustainable in the future: the purpose, the people and the human relationships,” said Oduyoye.
Readers interested in the business strategy might take inspiration from former PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi. Nooyi just posted My whole life: work, family and our future, tells in her own words how she came to be the head of Pepsi and her efforts to transform the giant soda maker into healthier, more environmentally friendly products. But Nooyi also talks about what she thinks businesses and industry need to think about today, such as improving the “care ecosystem” through policies that support employees, Oduyoye says, like time off. paid and labor flexibility.
Entrepreneurs will have a lot to learn from the experience of Sevetri Wilson, CEO of Resilia, a company that helps nonprofits with data-driven technology. His book, Resilient: How to Overcome It All and Start a Million Dollar Business With or Without Capital offers a roadmap of practical strategic advice.
But it’s not all business. For the art collector, the bank recommends In Search of Van Gogh: Capturing the Artist’s Life Through Photographs and Paintings, by Gloria Fossi, whom Oduyoye describes as a travelogue revealing the landscapes, people and things that inspired the famous artist.
Below are edited descriptions of the books and experiences on JP Morgan’s #NextList 2022:
