Introduction
PR Week Magazine has described Peter as “redefining the art of networking”, and Investor’s Business Daily has called him “crazy, but effective”. Peter Shankman is a spectacular example of what happens when you merge the power of pure creativity with  Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and a dose of adventure, and make it work to your advantage.
Bragging rights
As far as I know, I'm the first person to text in free fall, and one of my tweets, randomly enough, wound up as one of the top ten tweets of 2011, as judged by ABC News and Twitter. See www.shankman.com for more.
