Thought Leaders and their worth in data-gold

· Nicole Hindson & Reuben Kearney · 3 min read

Every now and again, you’ll see a natural leader that personifies expertise and knowledge, authenticates information, challenges the status quo and most notably is recognised for the change and progress that they have enabled in their specialised field and sector. These individuals are mostly recognised as Thought Leaders, their intellectual property has merit and clout, so it’s as if you have been gifted an endless supply of quality information and luckily for us, Thought Leaders realise the power of sharing one’s learnings and teachings.

For years, businesses’ and individuals have shied away from sharing their research and learnings, it was seen as being ‘too transparent’ or ‘giving away’ trade secrets. But this very want and need for transparency has given rise to some thought-provoking individuals and companies who amplify our interests and push us to invest in our passions. These Thought Leaders have found their niche in the market and are willing to share all that they have learnt along the way.

Thought Leaders can give use a broader perspective on a variety of topics, educate us, leave us with ‘food for thought’ and empower us to believe in our own passions and pursue new ideas, products, thoughts and ways to achieve success. One of our very own Thought Leaders who inspires us to keep moving the dial with our business intelligence product; Concerto, is Reuben Kearney (below image).
