Thought leader network Thinkers360 has released its latest list featuring the top 100 B2B Thought Leaders and Influencers to follow this year. Louis-Serge Real del Sarte, Chairman Founder of YLFLY tops this year’s list with a score of 100. Following in second place comes Strategic Advisor and 8x Best Selling Author Brian Solis while author and educator Marsha Collier closes the podium featuring a score of 80.20.
The Top 100 B2B Thought Leaders and Influencers list includes members of the Thinker360 network who have curated and shared their thought leadership content – including articles, blogs, books, keynotes, media interviews, panels, podcasts, social media, speaking events, videos, webinars and whitepapers – via their platform.
Top 100 B2B Thought Leaders and Influencers List
All influencers mentioned in their list has been given a score depending on their contributions to Thinkers360. And to figure out their score, “they have taken a holistic view of thought leaders and experts, beyond their social media activity, and look across all the hats they may wear – such as academic, author, consultant, entrepreneur, influencer and speaker – and all the types of thought leadership content they produce.”
Thinkers360 have followed a thorough methodology based on an in-house developed algorithm. This patent-pending algorithm helps to produce leaderboards that look across all thought leader roles and across the quantity and quality of their thought leadership content. It provides a valuable measure of thought leadership content, encourages genuine content creation, incorporates social media influence as one of the measures, and encourages richer profiles and portfolios through gamification.
“Of course, no measurement system related to influence or thought leadership is perfect, but the thought leadership scoring system within Thinkers360 is a highly-differentiated approach to help you identify authentic thought leaders – looking far beyond social media – serving as the tip of the spear for your B2B influencer marketing objectives,” the platform stated.
Likewise, the Top 100 B2B Thought Leaders and Influencers list currently cover business and technology topics including Agile, AI, Analytics, AR/VR, Autonomous Vehicles, Big Data, Blockchain, Change Management, Cloud, CRM, Cryptocurrency, Culture, Customer Experience, Cybersecurity, Design Thinking, Digital Disruption, Digital Transformation, Edtech, Emerging Technology, Entrepreneurship, ERP, FinTech, GovTech, Health & Safety, HealthTech, HR, Innovation, IoT, Leadership, Lean Startup, Management, Marketing, Mobility, Open Innovation, Predictive Analytics, Procurement, PropTech, Quantum Computing, Retail, Risk Management, Sales, Social, Startups, Supply Chain and Sustainability.
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.
Their mission is to disrupt the proprietary thought leadership “industry” and open it up to a wider array of established and emerging academics, authors, entrepreneurs, inventors, influencers and speakers – helping them to succeed in making the world a better place.
