Problem with Tom Peters’ Weekly Quote

You might have noticed a blip in delivery of the Tom Peters Weekly Quotes. Last week we didn't send one. Today they resume. Due to false sign-ups on a grand scale by scurrilous individuals, we must send the quote only to emails that are confirmed in our system. If you miss your quote or have any other problem, please let us know by email to tom-at-tompetersdotcom.

We're sure we'll have this problem worked out soon! Thanks for your understanding.

Opportunity to See Tom Live

If you live in the Northwest United States, you are within driving distance (albeit a long drive) of an upcoming Tom appearance: The Art Of Leadership Conference in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, on 11 September 2015. If you've never seen Tom live, we'd recommend you consider making the trip. We can almost guarantee you'd come away energized, inspired, and ready to get back to work!

Top 50 Social Employee Advocacy Leaders

Tom is proud to be included among the honorees on this list: The Top 50 Social Employee Advocacy Leaders (SEAL) on Twitter. We think it's a great accomplishment for a thinker born before the baby boomers to be in the forefront of an issue born with the Millennials.

Thought Leaders 2014

GDI/Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute, a Swiss think tank, and MIT teamed up to create "Thought Leaders 2014: The Most Influential Thinkers," a just-released, algorithmically determined list of "Who is influencing what we think today? Whose ideas are influencing ours?" Engagement in the "blogosphere," "twittersphere," and Wikipedia page citations across languages were among the many variables considered.

Nos. 1 and 2 on the list are Pope Francis and Tim Berners-Lee. The top ten also includes Muhammad Yunus, Jane Goodall, and Mario Vargas Llosa—an eclectic list indeed. Tom says he was "astonished, amazed, gobsmacked," to be included among such notables.  He placed at No 32.

A few others: Garry Kasparov, No. 11; Stephen Hawking, No. 14; Tom's intelectual hero, Daniel Kahneman, No. 17; Steven Pinker and Jaron Lanier, right after Tom at Nos. 33 and 34; E.O. Wilson, No. 41; Tom's pal Guy Kawasaki at No. 43; Paul Krugman, No. 50; Michael Porter, No. 53; another of Tom's intellectual heroes, Nassim Nicholas Taleb, No. 65; Thomas Friedman, No. 72; Francis Fukuyama, No. 91. I'd say Tom's in good company!
