Gary Vaynerchuck. He's incredibly to the point, and I like that. (as you can tell from this post...)

For me it has to be Gary Vaynerchuk.
He moved from Soviet Union to USA as a kid, with nothing. He now runs a 650 person social media agency.
He started a YouTube channel called Wine Library TV when Youtube first appeared and grew his family business, Wine Library from $3 million to $60 million. Then went into the social media agency space.
He's the main distruptor I look up to. He has an incredible work ethic and is ahead of the game with all new modern technologies.

Hands down Elon Musk!
Imagine every single person in the world driving a fossil fuel car, and Musk decides that next century everyone will be driving electric cars... He's creating a paradigm shift!
Oh and he is going to colonise Mars & has mastered commercial space travel...

It is Elon Musk for me to! His approach to intellectual property was what I believe really gives his business value. He wants his company to help reshape a better future for more economical cars and for that reason does not put intellectual property on the results of the R&D his company has put in.
For me business is about making people's lives better and he is an example of how putting this before mpney can help a business to achieve great things!

Bruce Lee is my favorite disruptor and someone I admire. The reason for this is because not only did he come from nothing but was a pioneer in changing the way that people think, live, communicate and understand others.

Arianna Huffington - Arianna is one of the most powerful women in media and she has achieved so much even when media has been very male dominated. She is also not afraid to speak about work life balance and how we should redefine success to include health and wellbeing and not just making money.

The digital age we all live in was engineered by my favourite Disruptor, Tim Berners-Lee, in 1989. Everything we now take for granted in our wired world harks back to a singularity: the moment when Tim invented the World Wide Web and took the unprecedented decision to make his invention free to use for everyone.
Tim Berner-Lee continues to advocate best practice on the web through his role as Director of the World Wide Consortium (W3C). He is a force of nature for good and a benevolent Disruptor par excellence.
Quite simply, there is an argument for reclassifying our calendar to mark the enormity of his achievement: welcome to the year 27 AT (27 After Tim).

some of my favourits distuprors are Mhairi Black, Michelle Mone and more recently Carol Smiley was fantastic at Network She's Woman means Business Conference. Brutally honest, funny and inspiring, she truly captured the audience.
