Many companies today strive to be “thought leaders,” but only a select few truly live up to that aspiration. Thought leadership requires a unique point of view, the ability to provide valuable information, and a layered approach to disseminating that information. For the few companies who achieve it, thought leadership is proven to drive long-term and higher-value customer relationships and increase brand affinity and loyalty.
Stacey King Gordon of Suite Seven led a workshop during LoyaltyExpo 2014 in Orlando, Florida. The workshop explored what makes a thought leader, best practices for thought leadership, and how to develop a publishing and content strategy to help companies grow into true thought leaders — helping with everything from navigating internal politics to prioritizing resources.
