Schmidt will share knowledge on ‘Building Tattoo-Worthy Customer Relationships’

Ken Schmidt, the former director of communications strategy for Harley-Davidson Motor Company, will be coming to Belmont University’s campus on Fri., Dec. 8 to share his knowledge on “Building Tattoo-Worthy Customer Relationships.” Schmidt is credited with helping rebuild Harley-Davidson’s brand, resulting in the motorcycle company’s turnaround from the brink of ruin to global dominance. He will share stories and insights on the road to building a fanatically vocal customer base, creating a passionately loyal corporate culture and developing leaders who inspire and motivate. The $45 breakfast event, part of Belmont’s Executive Learning Network programming, is open to the public.

Schmidt said, “Whether I’m talking about how perfectly average people can do extraordinary things or how to build an entirely new corporate culture, rekindle relationships with customers, or reach out to new ones in completely untraditional ways, I’m teaching people to throw conventional approaches out the window. I see opening hearts and minds as my life’s work.”

This program is a presentation from Belmont’s Jack C. Massey College of Business Executive Learning Network, a thriving network of over 350 business executives with the purpose of bringing together senior leaders of Nashville’s best-run companies in a setting where they can learn from each other. EO Nashville is the program’s community sponsor, and Williamson, Inc. is the media/community partner for this event.
