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. It can also be precisely targeted at maximizing the impact of a particular idea or book.

We have extensive experience working with organizations – including business schools and professional service firms – to develop thought leadership programmes. We also offer one-to-one workshops and Skype support. We have helped some of the world’s leading business thinkers generate great ideas and connect with audiences worldwide.


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

In 2018 Thinkers50 launched a new business book publishing partnership with the crowdfunding publisher Unbound. It offers an innovative new approach to business book publishing.
