Thought Leader

Thought Leader

We put scare quotes around the term “thought leader.” Don't worry - no hagiographic interviews here. No upsells, no bullshit. We have great conversations with true innovators, thinkers, disrupters, creatives, and a few fools. (You decide.) We ask them all for insights, stories and tools. (You'll laugh, you'll shout, you might fall asleep. It's all good.) We are all thought leaders. Think more. Lead better.
