How to Build Thought Leadership

The Edelman Trust Barometer found that people are more likely to trust a technical expert, or a person they view as similar to themselves, than traditional authority figures.

For companies, that means they can't simply default to a spokesperson with a fancy title, which isn't enough to have that person be viewed as a thought leader. Instead, brands need to think holistically about the stories they tell—and the people who tell them.

In this session, we'll explore strategies, tactics, and real-world success stories of starting from scratch and scaling a thought-leadership platform.

Join us to learn how to:

  • Create a baseline for potential thought leaders across four interconnected pillars
  • Determine gaps and prioritize next steps to start building a thought leader in your organization
  • Conduct working sessions with thought leaders to hone content, distribution outlets, and elements of personal branding
