A thought leader is a person who shares their ideas publicly and influences others to change what they do, how they think, or what they believe.
But can a company be a thought leader too? Absolutely. People like thought leaders. To be a thought leader in your industry you must connect to your audiences with ideas that are thought-provoking and innovative. Your company must continuously strive to broaden your connections and brand, both within your industry and outside of it. Good thought leadership builds business and revenue and puts your company a notch above others in an increasingly savvy world of other businesses and consumers.
