According to a global survey commissioned by the Times, Bill Gates is the most admired person on our planet. Barack Obama came second and his Russian opposite Vladimir Putin third. Stephen Hawking was the highest placed person in the UK, coming in at 16th. Almost 14,000 people in Great Britain and 12 other countries were surveyed for the poll, which made me wonder what causes us to admire one person over another.
So I wonder which leaders you most admire and why? Who are your favourite business leaders…or political leaders…or even thought leaders?
