- Starbucks brilliant marketing and leadership covered in BusinessWeek. Schultz is the kind of guy any marketer would want to work with tomorrow AM.
“You either have a tremendous love for what you do, and passion for it, or you don’t,” Schultz told me. “So whether I’m talking to a barista, a customer, or investor, I really communicate how I feel about our company, our mission, and our values. It’s our collective passion that provides a competitive advantage in the marketplace because we love what we do and we’re inspired to do it better. When you’re around people who share a collective passion around a common purpose, there’s no telling what you can do.”
