Peter Shankman, a bestselling author is joining Spark.me 2019

The organizing team of Spark.me, has just announced the new Spark.me 2019 keynote speaker – Peter Shankman, a five-time bestselling author, customer service expert, and serial entrepreneur.  

The New York Times has called Peter “a rockstar who knows everything about social media and then some.” He is known for radically new ways of thinking about the customer economy, sharing practical concepts and ideas on how the next fifty years of economic growth will be led first and foremost by the customer experience.

Peter is also using his platform to talk about the new neurodiverse economy, having started the Internet’s number one podcast on ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) – Faster than Normal, focusing on the superpowers and gifts of having a „faster than normal brain,“ which has helped thousands of people all around the world realize that having a neuroatypical brain is actually a gift, not a curse.

Peter is a serial entrepreneur with three startup launches and exits under his belt, among which is Help A Reporter Out (HARO), which became the standard for thousands of journalists looking for sources prior to being acquired three years after launch. He is also running the ShankMinds Breakthrough Network, an elite, online mastermind of thought leaders, business experts, and change makers. Peter is a two-time Ironman triathlete, and a class B licensed skydiver.

Spark.me has previously announced three speakers – Anab Jain (a TED speaker, designer, filmmaker, and co-founder of Superflux – a critically acclaimed foresight, design, and technology innovation company), Jeremiah Owyang (a founding partner at Kaleido Insights and disruptive technology expert, considered the definitive authority on corporate innovation programs), and Cate Murden (founder of PUSH, a business consultancy grounded in human behaviour). More speakers will be announced in the weeks to come.
