MICHAEL HYATT

Michael Hyatt is the Creator of LeaderBox, author of Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World (Thomas Nelson, 2012). It is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestseller. Recently, Forbes magazine named him one of “Top 10 Online Marketing Experts to Follow in 2014” and one of the “Top 50 Social Media Influencers of 2013.” Michael is the former Chairman & CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishers, the largest faith-based publisher in the world and now part of HarperCollins. He began his career at Word Publishing while a senior at Baylor University. In the 30 years since then, he has worked in nearly every facet of book publishing. He is also an expert in the field of social media. His blog, MichaelHyatt.com, is ranked by Google in the top one-half percent of all blogs with almost 500,000 unique visitors a month.

He has readers in more than two hundred countries. His podcast, This Is Your Life, is consistently in the top ten in the Business category on iTunes and downloaded by more than 350,000 people a month. He has more than 215,000 followers on Twitter. He is also the President and Founder of Platform University, an online membership community designed to give people the inspiration, coaching, and resources they need to get noticed in a noisy world. While Michael loves his work, it is not the most important thing in his life. That position belongs to his family. He has been married to his wife, Gail for thirty-six years. They have five daughters, four sons-in-law, and eight grandchildren. They live just outside of Nashville, Tennessee.
