Gamification Gurus Power 100

Published by: Toby Beresford

October 2017 - Who will be guru of the year?

Hello Gurus!

In late November we will be holding the Gamification Europe conference in Brighton.

I hope to see many of you there!

There will be an award for Gamification Guru of the Year. It will be based on community voting as last year. Anyone can vote, anyone who is a fellow gamification guru will get extra votes!

I shall automatically nominate anyone who has had a high average guru score for the year but am happy to consider any others who feel they'd like to go before the vote of peers.

Please look out for next month's email when I shall explain how to vote for your preferred Gamification Guru of the Year!

And now to this release of the gamification gurus data:

This month we saw the biggest climbs from José Carlos Cortizo (up 66 places to 60th), Helen Routledge (up 64 places to 62nd), and Dominique Mangiatordi (up 60 places to 39th). We welcome our two new gurus Ali Cevat ÜNSAL (8th), and Drew Crecente (104th). to the Gamification Gurus Power 100 board.

Andrzej Marczewski, Alireza Ranjbar Shourabi, and Monica Cornetti.

Have a great month

Toby
