founder of naked leader

The first ever global leadership portal

Naked Leader Week – 89 (w/c Monday 30 January 2005)

The new will be the first ever global leadership portal, connecting leaders throughout the world.

It’s content will be largely driven by you, and the next four NL Week’s are asking for your favourites, which will be compiled together.

This week, please send me your top three leaders – whatever that word means to you – please send to – your name will not appear, unless you want them to of course!

These are the latest top 50.
