You are cordially invited Influencers are the few that lead the many. They are the early adopters, thought purveyors or trendsetters. They are the creators of the styles and movements that others adopt. For the most part, their culture exists outside the purview of most traditional governmental and mainstream channels therefore accessing them in any substantive way has proven almost impossible. They create and shape a unique worldview within their chosen disciplines and in turn speak to their individual networks at a much deeper and more authentic level.
