SMW Global Curator Don Tapscott listed as Top Global Business Thinker



Social Media Week is a leading news platform and worldwide conference that curates and shares the best ideas and insights into social media and technology's impact on business, society, and culture.

A month ago, we introduced you to our Global Curator, Don Tapscott. In addition to his role with us, he is an adjunct professor of management at the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto and is one of the world’s leading authorities on innovation, media, globalization and the economic and social impact of technology on business and society- and let us not forget his musical role as keyboardist in Toronto-based band Men in Suits.

Now, we can add to his bio a Thinker50. We are excited to announce Don has been listed as an Business Idea Guru in the top 10 of Thinkers50. Thinkers50 is the definitive global ranking of management thinkers published every two years. This prestigious award is based on voting at the Thinkers50 website and input from a team of advisers led by Stuart Crainer and Des Dearlove. Don was chosen out of thousands of nominees and was selected based on originality of ideas; practicality of ideas; presentation style; written communication; loyalty of followers; business sense; international outlook; rigor of research; impact of ideas and what Thinkers50 calles “the elusive guru factor.”

See Don’s interview for Thinkers50. And join us in congratulating Don on this great honor.
