Tonia Cope Bowley Published a Stephen Lungu Biography to Inspire Disadvantaged Youth

Worldwide Branding member Tonia Cope Bowley was born in South Africa, where her exposure to the local Zulu population made her aware of the hardships that impoverished people endure. She received a Bachelor of Science degree and then taught mathematics for six years before adventuring for a year in Norway’s Arctic Circle. In 1981, while employed by OxfordUniversity, she wrote a top-selling book, “Computing using BASIC: an interactive approach,” which was published by Ellis Horwood.

In 1988 she and her husband founded The Thembisa Trust, a UK-based charity that provides some disadvantaged people in South Africa a chance to live a better life. Towards the end of a 28-year long career in education at Oxford University, Tonia was afflicted with chronic Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) and sadly had to retire early. However, this opened up a fresh-start opportunity. At last she had the time to fulfill her life-long dream to develop her talent in creative writing.

In 2006 her book: “RSI – How to avoid it – and what to do if you’ve got it” was published and is currently available on Amazon. In 2007, she won first prize in a short story competition for her fiction story “Quiet Kumalo.” This is currently being illustrated for publication as a children’s book. In June 2012, Tonia published a biography via IndePenPress Publishing Ltd., an independent, self-publishing book company – “From a Street Kid – Stephen Lungu’s incredible Life-journey.” The book details Stephen Lungu’s traumatic childhood and the transition from a homicidal gang leader and street thug to becoming the CEO and International Team Leader of AE – African Enterprise.

An Illustration: From a Street Kid

The journey to redemption was long and strife with misfortune: his mother gave birth to him when she was 14 years old, and from the time he was 11 until he turned 20, he lived under a bridge, in a hollow he carved out in the sand. The book is well illustrated and serves as a means to uplift even those who feel they are up against the worst odds. While it is geared to inspire and educate teenagers who have been neglected, desolate and cast away, and any who are trying to find their way through the growing up maze, people of all ages find it readable and moving.

“’From a Street Kid’ is such a powerful and positive life-story that is already encouraging and inspiring both young and old,” Tonia expounds. “I really want it to be read widely and of benefit to as many people as possible.”

In August, African Enterprise celebrates their Golden Jubilee in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, their birthplace and headquarters. Tonia, who has known the organization for the past 50 years, expects to attend and celebrate with AE.

Worldwide Branding Member David Styles Visits the U.S. to Promote His Book “Two Flights to Victory”

Worldwide Branding Member David Styles Speaking at a Book Signing Event

In November of 2011, Worldwide Branding member Dr. David G. Styles traveled to California from the United Kingdom to appear at book signings for “Two Flights to Victory” — a hardcover he wrote concerning the 1942 Doolittle Raid  and the 1945 bombing of Hiroshima. In this well-received book, published by The History Press, Dr. Styles spoke about a series of events linking the American Lieutenant-Colonel Jimmy Doolittle — considered a pioneer in aviation — with Colonel Paul Tibbets, who piloted the Enola Gay. Col. Tibbets was responsible for the Boeing B-29 Superfortress atomic bomb drop on Hiroshima; he was Doolittle’s 12th Air Force Bomb Leader.

The first signing was at the Haggin Museum in Stockton on 3rd November — Stockton being the location where eleven Doolittle Raiders completed their advanced flying training. The United in Victory event took place on November 11, 2011 aboard the USS Hornet aircraft carrier and museum in Alameda, Calif. The media and public showed up to honor all veterans at this special ceremony, but paid tribute attention to United States and Great Britain vets. Dr. Styles made limited copies of the publication available for purchase — at the conclusion of the event, only three copies remained.

Another book signing took place at the Grace United Methodist Church in Stockton, Calif., where not only was Dr. Styles able to sell every book he brought with him, he also received additional orders from guests. At the end of the event, Dr. Styles contributed $200 from proceeds to Grace Church funds.

Dr. Styles served in the British Royal Air Force. In 1986, he received a Ph.D. in business administration and automotive history; he also holds a master of business administration. Not only is he a noted historian, Dr. Styles is also recognized in the academic field for his expertise in automotive technology. As a program leader in the Engineering and Motor Vehicle Department of Loughborough College, he provides enrichment in motor vehicle technology, business administration, editing and publishing. He is also responsible for coordinating and teaching programs for the Business and Technician Education Council. Dr. Styles was recently appointed Volunteer Aviation Historian at the California State Military Museum in Sacramento, where his fourth book signing took place.
