Malcolm Gladwell - The Tipping Point

Chatter That Matters: A Deep Dive with Malcolm Gladwell

Malcolm Gladwell on Chatter That Matters

This week, I am thrilled to bring you Malcolm Gladwell, the renowned author, journalist, and speaker known for weaving complex ideas from social science, history, and psychology into engaging narratives that challenge conventional wisdom.

Malcolm shares his life story, how his mother and father influenced him, and his career, which included newspaper and magazine journalism before becoming one of our generation's most respected and best-selling authors.

We discuss what inspired some of his efforts, including The Tipping Point, David and Goliath, Outliers, Blink and more. Malcolm also teases his next book, which is coming out this fall.

Malcolm offers many insights and lessons on what it takes to stand for and stand out in today's world. 

I then replay an interview with Alan Depencier, CMO from RBC, from last year, which is even more relevant today.

Malcolm Gladwell is part of a series titled The Legends Journey, Lessons in Leadership, which I am co-producing with the Toronto Chapter of the American Marketing Association. We celebrate the journeys of those who have been inducted into the Marketing Hall of Legends. In my CTM library, you can find my interviews with Jeanne Beker, Miles Nadal, Arlene Dickinson and Frank Palmer.
