Don’t forget to sign up to join the gurus list to be counted for the December edition.

Also if you sign in and connect your networks then we will take account of them for the next month. We have been collecting reams of Slideshare data but due to a technical glitch I wasn’t able to include the scores in this month’s leaderboard – be sure Slideshare views and comments will count next month though. Make sure you attach the tag “gamification” to your uploaded slide presntations.

Have fun gurus and thanks for teaching the world about Gamification!

    Tyler Altrup was the opening keynote speaker at the New Marketing International Congress in El Salvador, Central America last week ( The audience was really impressed and there’s no doubt Tyler has the ability to lead the way in Gamification. Great conference and totally recommended for any event.
