Saunders is also one of the experts who will be featured in the BizTrends2024 Report, sharing his The Future of Humancentric Digital & Data research on how people will want to engage with technology, the touchpoints of engagement and business opportunities in digital data, especially in Africa.
Both the dreamers and the doers, the book features interviews and articles by founders and leaders in inspiring companies and organisations such as Airbnb, Asana, Toms Shoes, Nvidia, Craigslist, Techstars, WordPress, Basecamp, etc.
Saunders, who sets the tone as the opening chapter, brings his unique perspective to this international collection that includes 150 contributors, including Seth Godin, Tim Ferriss, David Aaker, Dr Travis Bradberry, and Nir Eyal as well as Christine Spiten, co-founder of Blueye Robotics, Matt Mullenweg, founder of WordPress, and Brian Chesky, co-founder of Airbnb.
"It's an honour to be included in such a prestigious group of business leaders; I hope this book goes a long way to inspiring people to chase their dreams and make an impact," says Saunders.
Explaining the importance of this project, he says that as we are challenged by some of the toughest economic challenges we have ever faced, we need to find ways to make an impact now more than ever.
“We all have our part to play if we want our situation to change.” For him, this means putting pen to paper - “And hopefully inspiring people to make a significant impact," says Saunders.
Here are some of the many thought-provoking messages in Doers & Dreamers:
“Doers & Dreamers is not a one-topic publication but a good friend who can help turn your dreams into reality,” says Saunders.
The book contains articles about the idea phase, the development, the commercialisation and the growth.
“Without your actions, innovation is just an idea with a promise. Without you, visions remain useless words on a piece of paper. Without you, there is no growth – for your business, your economy, or your country,” expands Saunders.
JumpStory publishes Doers & Dreamers as an eBook and hard copy. All proceeds are donated to the Danish Red Cross.
