As a Cisco senior writer and content creator, the Thinkers360 community has been a key resource. With access to leaders, SMEs, and visionaries from all areas of technology and industry, I can pull in the critical external insights that give our thought leadership the wide perspective it demands. In addition, the team have helped amplify our content to a highly diverse, and powerfully influential audience of decision makers around the world.
Thinkers360 was founded to help solve some of the current issues in the thought leadership “industry”.
Today, the thought leadership ecosystem is highly-fragmented and often closed to most outsiders. Once a specialized art, practiced by a few, thought leadership is now a widespread discipline practiced by many – beyond the current 1% that the “industry” currently serves.
Many upcoming thought leaders and experts aren’t yet social media stars, celebrity authors, influencers or speakers, but are leading authorities in their fields. Both established and emerging thought leaders need new ways to measure their expertise – looking beyond influence – and a platform to advance their audience and impact.
