Our Story

Focus was founded in 1989 by Jaqui Lane.

Our mission was to create high quality book for entrepreneurs, business people, business and government. Over the past 27 years Focus has published over 400 titles and worked throughout Australia, Asia, the Middle East and Europe.

Focus and Jaqui Lane have written and published the corporate stories of many of Australia’s iconic companies including Qantas, Ford, Holden, the Snowy Mountains, Myer, Woolworths, Amcor, the Commonwealth Bank, The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, The Salvation Army, Allen Jack + Cottier, the State Libraries of NSW, Queensland and Victoria, Crown and the ASX.

As publishing has changed so has Focus.

Focus is now an imprint of Global Stories, Jaqui Lane’s corporate storytelling company.

It is also linked with Jaqui’s new business, The Book Adviser, an online program that helps executives and board directors write, publish and sell their business book in 12 months.

Jaqui has always been passionate about business books, business storytelling and sharing knowledge through books.
