One of the most in-demand speakers and communications consultants in America, Ken Schmidt has lived a rich and extraordinary life. In 1985, Schmidt began working at struggling and lost Harley-Davidson. The company was confused as to how to define its brand in a changing marketplace. In 1990, Schmidt became director of Harley-Davidson’s corporate and financial communications and through this haze confusion provided clarity and played an active role in one of the most celebrated turnarounds in corporate history – and got paid to ride motorcycles! He is widely known and respected as one of the business world’s most outspoken and provocative thought leaders and has partnered with many of the world’s most successful brands. Now, Schmidt is a frequent speaker to business groups and academic communities throughout the world. Whether he’s talking about how to understand and leverage basic needs to improve competitiveness, or how to build an entirely new corporate culture or how to reach out to new customers in completely untraditional ways, Schmidt never follows a predictable course. After all he has accomplished, his philosophy of life and business hasn’t changed: “Never do what’s expected, make yourself as noticeably different as possible, and have a lot more fun than you’re supposed to.”During FORUM ONE 2014 Ken Schmidt will share his knowledge about the art of building brand loyalty, converting customers into vocal brand advocates and breaking the low price/commodity mindset. And how to do that in the very Harley-Davidson style!
