‘Competing on Thought Leadership’ is a Finalist in Prestigious OWL Book Awards

Bob Buday’s book “Competing on Thought Leadership” has been named a finalist in the Sales & Marketing category of 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 includes five finalists in 10 categories, focused on business, education or community.

Along with “Competing on Thought Leadership,” the four other finalists in the Sales & Marketing category were “Unreasonable Hospitality” by Will Guidara; “The Jolt Effect” by Matthew Dixon and Ted McKenna; “Cues” by Vanessa Van Edwards; and “Moving to Outcomes” by Robert Glazer and Matt Wool.

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.

In December, BookPal will choose one book from each of the 10 categories as the 2022 winner. To see all the finalists visit here.
