The Thinkers50 is admired around the world for its independence and market intelligence. Some of the comments from media and other sources are below:
“The Times has been involved with the Thinkers50 since 2005. It is exactly the sort of initiative that our readers love. It is authoritative and compelling.”
Carol Lewis, Business Features Editor, The Times (of London)
“The Thinkers50 creates its own honor society as an authoritative ranking of the most influential business thinkers on earth.”
Fred Allen, Forbes.com
“The Thinkers50 HBR slideshow has been at or near the top of our “most read” list since it went live. Pretty impressive.”
Eric Hellweg, Managing Director of Digital Strategy, Harvard Business Review.
“The Thinkers50 is now established as the definitive ranking of global thought leaders. The 2011 event to announce the list of top 50 thinkers and celebrate their achievement was a fantastic event and it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to call it the Oscars for ideas,”
Professor Costas Markides of London Business School.
“I never would have imagined I would merit an award like this. I am so honored and so grateful.”
Professor Clayton Christensen of Harvard Business School in his Thinkers50 acceptance speech in 2011.
“The Thinkers50 is the global barometer of the best management thinking. I am already looking forward to the ideas and thinkers who will feature in 2013.”
Professor Vijay Govinderajan, of the Tuck Business School at Dartmouth College, in New Hampshire.
“The Thinkers50 is recognised around the globe for its independence. In the thought leadership space, it doesn’t get much better than that! Fujitsu was delighted to sponsor the Thinkers50 Innovation Award in 2011. It provided us with an excellent opportunity to publicise Fujitsu perspectives on co-innovation and introduce how the company is delivering on its brand promise – shaping tomorrow with you. For me personally, it was a great honour to present the Innovation Award to Professor Clayton Christensen, at Harvard.”
