Chairlift Chats is a series of articles (and occasional videos) I publish on LinkedIn and Forbes, when interesting people come to Park City, Utah.

My sketches use visual thinking to simplify complex ideas. They also help me figure out what is most important to communicate.

My Slideshares have attracted millions of views, and they are a great way for me to test content for webinars and workshops.

Bruce Kasanoff - bio

Company founders, top executives, leading speakers and bestselling authors trust ghostwriter Bruce Kasanoff to shape their best ideas. In recent years, he's also begun to share his secrets and show the rest of us what works, and why.

He's become the most prolific and approachable of all LinkedIn Influencers, with a following of over 650,000. To this day if you message Bruce, he will respond back personally. He also covers bringing out talent in others as a Forbes contributor. Bruce is the author of How to Self-Promote without Being a Jerk and also Never Tell People What You Doboth of which have been bestselling Kindle titles on Amazon. 

Bruce says he has the best job in the world. Fascinating people pay him to hear and then retell their best ideas. In the process, he learns so much that the only logical course of action is to share lessons with the widest possible audience.

Bruce advocates a more humane approach to business than many companies practice. He believes that your central mission should be to bring out talent in others, because that is the only proven strategy for maximizing your own contributions (and success).

Bruce delivers webinars and workshops that explore the role of enlightened self-interest in professional organizations and within individual careers. His personal credo offers a glimpse into his highly positive approach.

Bruce is also an abstract photographer whose photographs serve as a powerful reminder of the power of focus, patience, and presence. 

Earlier in his career, Bruce was an original partner of Peppers & Rogers Group, where he helped popularize the strategies of 1to1 marketing and personalization. His 2001 book Making It Personal predicted many of the personalization practices that have become mainstream today.  

He has delivered hundreds of workshops, keynote speeches and training programs to a wide variety of organizations. Bruce earned an MBA at The Wharton School and has presented at Wharton, Yale University, New York University, and Fairfield University. He is a passionate skier who conducts Chairlift Chats in Park City, Utah. 

One more thing... Bruce will cross the street to pat a dog.
