Pete Jenkins reaches number one on the Gamification Gurus Power 100

We’ve a new number one in the form of the effervescent (and that’s just his shirts) Gamfed chair – Pete Jenkins. 🙂 Well done Pete – you really are spreading the word about gamification.


Anyone who has been tracking his progress on Rise can see his slow but steady approach over the past 12 months to becoming the top Gamification Guru has finally paid off with a coveted number one spot.

This month we also saw the big climbs from Darryn Van den Berg (up 81 places to 43rd), Lauren S. Ferro (up 64 places to 41st), and Alireza Alireza.r.shourabi (up 45 places to 18th).

We also welcome back gurus Scott Sinclair (7th), Ruth S. Contreras (34th), and Alejandrodomsau (58th). to the Gamification Gurus Power 100 board.

It hasn’t been such a good month for gurus Marcel Klimo (down 76 to 106th), Máté Farkas (down 74 to 127th), and Lennart Nacke (down 62 to 120th).

Well done to this week’s top three Pete Jenkins, Karl Kapp, and Monica Cornetti.
