Thinkers50 SPEAKERS

Since 2001, The Thinkers50 established a prestigious biennial ranking of the top global management, strategy, business and leadership thinkers whose ideas have the potential to change the world.

The Thinkers50 has ten established criteria by which thinkers are evaluated including: originality of ideas; practicality of ideas; presentation style; written communication; loyalty of followers; business sense; international outlook; rigor of research; impact of ideas and the elusive “guru factor.”

The Thinkers50 influence extends far beyond the business arena to address wide-reaching global issues, ranging from reducing poverty to building a sustainable model of capitalism.

We are proud to represent a comprehensive roster of these esteemed Thinkers50 Speakers, scholars, authors and thought leaders and offer their vanguard leadership and management programs and dynamic presentations to your organization.
