Have An Idea?

If you are subscribed to this blog, then you either have an interest in management consulting, a passion for strategic thinking, or you just love reading along to see what I might come up with.

This blog is invariable upbeat (with the exception of yesterday’s post, which was an unfortunate diversion, and comes with my apologies).

But as you read this blog you may have found yourself thinking one of the following:

  1. I knew that;
  2. I have a better idea; or
  3. Tom doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

All of these criticisms could apply from time to time (despite my best efforts to inform, delight and motivate).

And so, this leads to the obvious question: do you have an idea that you would like to share with over 2,000 smart people?

If you are interested in writing a guest post, I would love to hear from you.

You don’t need to write a lengthy tome; an article which is between 50 and 1,000 words in length would do the trick nicely.

If you are interested in writing an article, please send me an email now (tom [at] spencertom [dot] com).

I look forward to hearing from you.
