Join former Harley-Davidson executive, Ken Schmidt, as he shares the secrets that spurred Harley-Davidson’s remarkable turnaround and insights from his new book, Make Some Noise: The Unconventional Road to Dominance.

Schmidt is widely known and respected as one of the business world’s most outspoken, provocative, and entertaining thought leaders on topics including competition, positioning, reputation management, human behavior, and loyalty. Attendees will learn Schmidt’s innovative approach to creating customer loyalty and marketplace dominance including the three key questions to assess a company’s positioning, competitiveness, and reputation.

Following Schmidt’s discussion, a panel of regional experts will share tips on how growing businesses can leverage customer loyalty to achieve their business goals.
