With museums, theater, and other forms of entertainment open to visitors, JP Morgan’s client advisors had many things to consider as they offered suggestions for the bank’s annual list of recommended books and experiences.
While last year’s hypothetical recommendations, including Quarantunes in Los Angeles, and Planet Word, in Washington, D.C., undoubtedly created conversions for customers cornered by the pandemic, this year the bank could include six real-world experiences for its 2022 “Next List” .
Among them is pop rock musical six On New York’s Broadway, which was due to open at the same time as the New York theater closed in March 2020, and Kering Group founder François Pinault’s contemporary art collection, which is on display at a Pinault-developed museum, the Bourse de Commerce, in Paris.
The theme for this year’s list is “Reimagining the World,” said Darren Odowe, chief communications officer at JPMorgan Asset & Wealth Management. He says, “We’ll go back to personal events and to more normal life, and we all seek inspiration. Where are we headed for that? Arts or cultural experiences or a really good book.”
The bank’s “NextList 2022” recommendations include eight books and six trials selected by a panel that reviewed the recommendations from client advisors around the world to appeal to the diverse interests of its clients, many of whom are business leaders, art collectors and entrepreneurs. These are the “citizens of the world,” says Odooy.
The book’s recommendations include titles on leadership, business strategy, entrepreneurship, technology, spirituality, and medicine.
For ideas on leadership, J.P. Morgan recommends The Heart of Business: Leadership Principles for the Post-Capitalism Eraby Hubert Jolly and Caroline Lambert. Julie became Best Buy’s CEO in 2012, and is credited with the heart of electronic retail.
“The book is about the essence and ethos of what makes a business sustainable moving forward – purpose, people, and human relationships,” says Oduyoye.
Readers interested in business strategy can turn to former PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi for inspiration. Nooyi just posted My Whole Life: Work, Family, and Our FutureAnd It tells the story in its own words about how it led Pepsi and its efforts to transform the soda giant into healthier, more environmentally friendly products. But Nooyi also talks about what she thinks business and industry need to think about today, such as strengthening the “care ecosystem” through policies that support employees, Odowi says, such as paid time off and work flexibility.
Entrepreneurs will have a lot to draw from the experience of Sevetri Wilson, CEO of Resilia, a company that helps nonprofits with data-driven technology. her, Flexibility: How to Beat Anything and Build a Million Dollar Business With or Without Capital Offers a roadmap of practical, strategic advice.
but that is not all. For art collectors, the bank recommends In Search of Van Gogh: Depicting the Artist’s Life Through Pictures and PaintingsWritten by Gloria Fossey, which Oduyoye describes as akin to a travel story that reveals the landscapes, people, and things that inspired the famous artist.
Here are the edited descriptions of books and experiments in JP Morgan’s #NextList 2022:
