Innovation doesn’t die once you turn 40.
We’ve all read stories about people under the age of 40 who have done great things. That’s awesome, and we should applaud them. But it overlooks the people who have context, background and knowledge of the industry and are still breaking new ground.
Who are the meeting professionals over the age of 40 who inspire you? Who are your mentors?
We asked our Facebook friends, and they gave us this list. The PYM staff added a few more names, and we’ve listed them in alphabetical order here. Out of respect for their privacy, we haven’t included links to LinkedIn profiles, their companies or anything of a personal nature. That’s also because we’ll be doing in-depth profiles of people from this list and sharing why their peers consider them so innovative in the months to come (and who wants to click on 69 links in a row?).
Tell us: Did we miss anyone? Is there someone on this list that you’d like to see profiled on PYM? Is there someone on this list that you’d like to interview yourself? Let us know by commenting below! We’ll begin to post profiles next month.
Do you know any of the people mentioned? Share with us how they’ve inspired you.
