Thinkers50 Services

As part of its mission of identifying, ranking and sharing the very best in management thinking, Thinkers50 offers a variety of services to individuals and organizations.


Thinkers50 founders Stuart Crainer and Des Dearlove act as coaches and trusted advisers to thinkers and their organizations. Their advice is strategic and encompasses how best to develop a thinker’s brand and business.


Thinkers50 publishes a small number of titles that we believe are important but which do not fit the conventional publishing stereotypes and might not otherwise find a quality publisher. Thinkers50 has three decades of experience in business book publishing, as writers, editors, promoters and publishers.


Whether it be a key-note speech on the latest business ideas, a briefing on trends in business thinking, or advice on designing your next big corporate conference, at Thinkers50 we have extensive experience of engaging global audiences. We can also act as facilitators and chairs of events.
