My next guest has been called “the controversial leader of the new world order”, wow, what a title to live up to, but live up to it he does.
Co-founder of citizen journalism site NowPublic – one of the largest news agencies in the world, Leonard is an award- winning entrepreneur, venture capitalist, bestselling author and a two-time Emmy nominated media visionary. In his talks ? for clients ranging from the United Nations to Visa and Pepsi ? Leonard Brody addresses the rapid pace of change, innovation, and disruption facing us all,?and what to do about it. His expertise in this area is unrivalled, so much so that he’s been invited to share his insight with the world leaders at the G8 summit and the UN.
The old rules of influence just don’t apply any more. The biggest brands aren’t products anymore, they are people, the most trusted voices aren’t journalists any more they are thought leaders, the biggest funders aren’t banks any more they are crowdfunders ? and with this democratisation of power, comes unprecedented opportunity, this man is the absolute authority on what this power shift means for us and for those seeking to take hold of their own influence and how to navigate this new world moving forward.
