Authors on the Air host Pam Stack is proud to welcome highly regarded British author Philip Kerr to the studio to discuss his current novel The Lady from Zagreb. Philip Kerr was born in Edinburgh in 1956 and read Law at university. Having learned nothing as an undergraduate lawyer he stayed on as postgraduate and read Law and Philosophy, most of this German, which was when and where he first became interested in German twentieth century history and, in particular, the Nazis. He spent most of his time in advertising researching an idea he'd had for a novel about a Berlin-based policeman, in 1936. And following several trips to Germany - and a great deal of walking around the mean streets of Berlin - his first novel, March Violets, was published in 1989 and introduced the world to Bernie Gunther.

Denise Griffitts Interviews James M. Kerr
A rapidly shifting and complex economy is ushering in a global restructuring of the business world. In order to keep their organizations vital for the future, executives must respond to this new commercial age by re-imaging their organizations' structures, enhancing product and service offerings, and leveraging emerging technological capabilities.
Today I am speaking with James Kerr. He is is a management consultant, organizational behaviorist and partner at BlumShapiro. He specializes in strategic planning, corporate transformation, and project and program development. Consulting with many Fortune 100 firms, he has worked with diverse organizations as The Home Depot, JP Morgan Chase, Mitsui Sumitomo, IBM, and the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
James is the author of The Executive Checklist (Palgrave Macmillan, 2014) as well as three other business texts.
In The Executive Checklist: A Guide for Setting Direction and Managing Change, James provides a primer for how to set direction and manage change within the 21st century enterprise and he is here to share examples of new organizational concepts being implemented in businesses today and how it's helping them to be better and stay better.
Today, James is going to share some great stories about his work with companies that we all know, love or loathe.

We’re in the midst of the closest round of playoff games in the league’s history, but that hasn’t stopped the New York Knicks from looking for a new coach and Donald Sterling for bringing attention off the court.
Steve Kerr has emerged as the early consensus frontrunner to become the new head coach of the Knicks thanks to his relationship with Phil Jackson and shared belief in the Triangle offense.
Before covering Game 4 between the Raptors and Nets as an analyst for TNT, Kerr spoke in a Barclays Center hallway about his candidacy. Michael Scotto tweeted his top quotes from the discussion, which you can view on his Twitter page. In addition, stay tuned for Scotto's column on Kerr’s candidacy coming soon.
On Sterling, we have four columns from Chris Sheridan, Chris Bernucca, Danny Schayes and Jan Hubbard covering the scandal all angles.
Here is Scotto's take on the Sterling situation in this podcast with Yahoo! Sports Radio host Dylan Gwinn.
Kerr Cuhulain has been a Wiccan for 44 years and has been involved in anti-defamation activism and hate crimes investigation for the Pagan community since 1986. He was awarded the Shield of Valor by the Witches League for Public Awareness. Kerr is the author of the Law Enforcement Guide to Wicca, Wiccan Warrior, Full Contact Magick, Witch Hunts, Magickal Self Defense, How To Be Glorious, Modern Knighthood, and The Wizard. Kerr has a column on anti-defamation issues and hate crimes called Witch Hunts. Kerr is the former Preceptor General of Officers of Avalon, and is currently leader of the Order of Paladins, a Wiccan order of Knights.
The Wizard (from Kerr's blog): "In 1977 I was sworn in as a peace officer in Vancouver. When I eventually came out about my Wiccan beliefs, being the first Wiccan cop to do so, I spent the next three decades of my law enforcement career battling prejudice, gossip, surviving the “Wicca File”, and ending up a detective and an expert in hate crimes against minority religions. This is my story, which will soon be available from Dark Moon Press."
Witch Hunts (from Kerr's blog): "My book Witch Hunts went out of print some time ago when the publisher went out of business. Dark Moon Press has just republished this book, which you can purchase here. In this book I share decades of research into the myths and misinformation that has spread around the various communities about paganism in its various forms, from Satanism to Wicca."
Wendy Kerr is an example of corporate cross-over, from 20 years of working for multi-nationals including Global Biz Development for Apple and Financial Time. She made the leap and is now owner and author of Corporate Crossovers® a coaching, consulting company aimed at helping women build their own businesses. She’s passionate about changing the way work works – she’s already helped over 1,500 women re-organise their working lives and is on a mission to help 10,000 more women do the same.
