Bob Buday’s book “Competing on Thought Leadership” has been named one of the top three Sales & Marketing books of 2022 in BookPal’s Outstanding Works of Literature (OWL) awards program. This is the book’s fifth publishing industry award this year. (See the others here.)
BookPal, a service that handles bulk book sales for businesses and organizations, created the Outstanding Works of Literature (OWL) Award five years ago to recognize books that are shaping society today. The recognition program has become highly competitive: BookPal’s experts explore and assess thousands of books published each year to find ones that change the way organizations do business, educators create and teach curriculum, and communities understand and pursue wellbeing. The “Longlist” of the OWL awards, announced in November, included five finalists in 10 categories, focused on business, education or community. The “Shortlist” whittled down those five to the top three.
Along with “Competing on Thought Leadership,” the two other top books in the Sales & Marketing category were “Unreasonable Hospitality” by Will Guidara; and “Cues” by Vanessa Van Edwards.
In the past five years that the OWL awards have been in place, other winners have included distinguished authors such as PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi and entrepreneur and TV personality Oprah Winfrey. Finalists this year include “Trust & Inspire,” a book by author and thought leader Stephen M.R. Covey.
We are thrilled that “Competing on Thought Leadership” is in such great company and are grateful to our publisher, Ideapress, for presenting our title to the BookPal team.
