Who’s your favorite thought leader?

All marketers need some inspiration now and again, and the people we look to are often influencers within their field.

These thought leaders help us to keep up with the latest trends, stay ahead of the curve and be informed about others we should be watching. So we were delighted when our own President and Founder, Tink Taylor, was named in the Huffington Post’s 23 Thought Leaders Every Online Marketer Must Know.

Tink’s quoted as being “A thought leader that focuses on email marketing made easy, but without skimping on quality.” But that’s not all he’s known for.

Tink has been an elected member of the UK Direct Marketing Association’s (DMA) Email Marketing Council, working on the deliverability, best practice and awards committees, and has judged numerous DMA awards over the years. He also works on the Email Council at the Internet Advertising Bureau (IAB) and is currently elected as a Member of the Advisory Committee (MAC) of the Email Experience Council (EEC), the email arm of the US DMA.

In the spirit of sharing invaluable tips and advice, here are five people in the email world we think it’s worth following (including the details of Tink himself):
