Thought Leadership 2.0
Building thought leadership without breaking your back

Everyone knows the benefit of being established as a thought leader. For starters, there is an immediate trustworthiness associated with thought leaders that will increase your influence as you are perceived as someone who "knows" and who "cares."

In the old world, tools to build thought leadership included writing books, speaking and getting the attention of the media. There was a physical limit on the number of spots available and the competition was intense. Social Media seemed to change that with everyone being able to create their own platform to establish thought leadership. However, this created its own problem. With more than 150 million blogs and more than 50 million people on Twitter, how do you ensure that you are heard?

In this talk, #THINKtweet series editor and successful entrepreneur Rajesh Setty will cover what it takes to build thought leadership in this new world. You will walk away with:

  • The foundation for building thought leadership
  • The emerging models to build and maintain thought leadership
  • Social Media Mindset and why it's no longer optional.
  • Leveraging social media to super-charge your efforts
  • Creating the right kind of buzz

You will also hear stories on how:

  • Rajesh sat down with an executive at a Fortune 500 company and helped her write her book in two days
  • How a Wall Street Journalist penned her book in 2 weeks and had it at a conference 3 weeks later
  • How #DIVERSITYtweet transformed a speaker on the speaking circuit from someone interesting to listen to, to someone that CEOs had to hire!

    Rajesh rocks as a speaker. It was actually kind of refreshing to have flip charts instead of projected slides. They were simple and quite good, although it was a little hard to read some of the words from the back. No matter, though, he explained them all. Simple, powerful concepts.

    The attendees were a pretty high quality group, too. That helped to make the meeting great.
