Author, CEO, and media entrepreneur Peter Shankman (CGS’92, COM’94) is a busy guy—traveling and speaking around the world, hosting a podcast, running marathons, starting companies, and dabbling in angel investing. How does he do it? He credits his ADHD with making him “faster than normal” and he says people just like him—the new neuroatypical generation– will change the workplace and the world for good. Get ready!
The New York Times has called Peter Shankman "a rockstar who knows everything about social media and then some." He is a 5x best selling author, entrepreneur and corporate keynote speaker, focusing on customer service and the new and emerging customer economy. He is recognized worldwide for radically new ways of thinking about the customer experience, social media, PR, marketing, advertising, and ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.)
This event is part of the Stanley P. Stone Distinguished Lecture Series. It is free and open to the public thanks to the generous support of Stanley P. Stone (CGS’64, Questrom’66).
