Global Guru Criteria

In judging the contenders of the various Global Guru Categories, we focus on two groups, which excluded political, military and business people and focused on those practitioners, trainers, speakers and consultants who develop and instill competency in others. The Top 30 Gurus, in their respective categories are the “Cream of the Crop”, the World’s Top 30 most influential Professionals Speakers, Trainers and/or Consultants in their areas and have received more than 500 votes each. All not only apply their own principals to achieve superior results in their organisations, but develop and influence people and organisations throughout the globe.

Our research came from e-mails sent to 22,000 business people, consultants, academics and MBA’s around the world for nominations and our public opinion poll.

We shortlist 60 names then did a Google search for ranking, then requested voting.

The criteria for judging the TOP 30 focused on: 

  • Public opinion - 30%
  • Originality of ideas - 30%
  • Impact of original ideas - 10%
  • Practicality of ideas - 10%
  • Presentation style - 10%
  • Number of publications and writings - 5%
  • Guru factor 5%
