I have taken the bold step and want to change my email signature to include a category called thought leader.
Well I am currently reading a brilliant book called “The New Rules of Marketing and PR – How to use News Releases, Blogs, Podcasting, Viral Marketing & Online Media to Reach Buyers Directly” by David Meerman Scott. In fact, I only started reading it last night after being delayed for 3 hours at the Durban airport due to inclement weather. In this book he writes about people who add value in many ways called thought leader.
This has always been my ambition. People like Nelson Mandela who add value to projects irrespective their upbringing or education. Thought Leader? Look at what Wikipedia has to say about it.
Do I fit this bill? I think I do! After eleven years of adding value to organizations through my writings, training, consulting and speaking, I think I do.
Do you agree? Please let me know! Do I have a right to call myself a thought leader?
