Hogan CEO Dr. Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic was announced as a shortlisted nominee for Thinkers50, the premier ranking of global business thinkers, in the “Talent” category, according to a press release issued by the organization on Tuesday.
“Thinkers50 is a celebration of the very best new management thinking as well as those ideas which stand the test of time,” says Des Dearlove, who created Thinkers50 with Stuart Crainer in 2001. “We are looking for ideas with a potential impact that extends beyond the business world to address issues ranging from reducing poverty to building a sustainable model of capitalism.”
The winners will be announced on November 9 in London at the Distinguished Achievement Awards, which have been described as the “Oscars of management thinking.” This year’s awards highlight thinkers whose ideas have the potential to change the world.
“It’s an honor to be mentioned in such prestigious company,” says Chamorro-Premuzic.
For Thinkers50 2015, more than 20,000 people suggested their favored thinkers via the organization’s website, and 1,200 were officially nominated for the awards. The shortlists include business experts from more than 12 nationalities, including India, Korea, Cuba, Austria, France, Italy, Canada, the UK, and the US. The shortlists also include more women than ever before.
“It is great to see such diversity on the shortlists,” says Stuart Crainer, who created the Thinkers50 with Dearlove. “For too long business thinking could be characterized as male, pale, and stale. That’s no longer the case.”
