Tom Peters

Late last year discovered tompeters.com. The url is http://wow.tompeters.com. Love the wow.

Tom Peters is Mr. In Search of Excellence and his enthusiasm for change, excellence, creativity rages unabated. Peters isn't for everyone but for those into change, creative destruction, and generally not accepting anything for what it might be, he's a reassuring champion.

He's also fully embraced the internet age - with a blog, Flickr photos and a penchant for posting a ton of his stuff for all to access. Collaboration as described by Don Tapscott in Wikinomics is alive and well on tompeters.com.

One of the cool things he posts are the slides from a bunch of his presentations. Recognizing that the majority of the value from a Tom Peters presentation is what he says, not his slides, the slides still throw out lots to chew on. If nothing else, the complete lack of standardization in his slides is a wonderful break from corporate monotony.
