“A brand is an annuity for the future.” — Hap Klopp
Interviewed in a Fireside Chat by Inboard CEO Ryan Evan, Klopp hardly needed any prompting to entertain the room with stories of branding, leadership, and creating community — back before the internet.
“For 20 years I disobeyed business conventions of passionless management by immersing myself in my work and, more important, in the lives and dreams of my coworkers. I told them of my dream, of my vision to be the best. And then I asked for their help.” — From Conquering The North Face: An Adventure In Leadership, by Hap Klopp.
