All-New Education: Fuel Your Growth
keynote speaker: Ken schmidt
As the head of communications for Harley Davidson, Ken Schmidt played a vital, integral role in one of the most celebrated turnarounds in corporate history.
Hear how Ken worked to take a then-struggling Harley-Davidson and help restore the company’s image and create demand for its motorcycles. Within a few short years, as sales of its motorcycles rocketed upward, Harley-Davidson became one of the most respected, competitively dominant, profitable, and frequently reported-on companies in the world.
In his address, Ken will share his insights on non-traditional communications, customer attraction and brand-building.
