Keynote – Fierce Loyalty: Dominating in a Commoditized Market

Presented by Ken Schmidt, Harley-Davidson’s former director of communications

As a major player in one of the world’s most celebrated turnarounds, Ken Schmidt helped transform Harley-Davidson in the 1980s through the mid ‘90s from a just another motorcycle company into one of the world’s most popular brands and dominant competitors. In his keynote presentation at the In Business Expo & Conference, Ken will teach you how to position your business to ensure that it’s memorably different than competitors, and how to strengthen your reputation so your customers stay fiercely loyal and refer you to others – even when your prices are higher.
