Former CEO Starbucks Jim Donald in Italy
Former Starbucks CEO and “turnaround king” Jim Donald is going to be in Europe in Spring 2018. He has a new speech that is perfect for the current business climate, and I thought he may be a nice choice for a kick-off meeting you are planning in the New Year.
Jim is known for his innovative business techniques and unique ability to take flailing brands back from the edge of bankruptcy to booming success. He was named one of the Top 25 CEOs in the world, and his new speech is about making excellence attainable to anyone. Here are some excerpts from the presentation:
- “Success is not about the latest technology, or data mining, or algorithms, it’s about attitudes and action of execution”
- “The biggest threat to your company is coming from the inside of your four walls, not externally”
