Here is a post I did on Tom Gilbert in my collection of posts titled: First Friday Favorite Gurus – my attempt to recognize and thank those who contributed the most to my professional development over the years.

I have recognized 40+ – and could add more (and might).

It was a bit of reflection that I engaged in for several years and shared in order to thank publicly – and potentially lead others to these same people and resources – here.
