In addition to founding Alltop.com, Kawasaki is the former chief evangelist of Apple and offers leaders an engaging presentation on "Enchantment: The Art of Changing Hearts, Minds and Action." In this presentation, Kawasaki discusses how to influence people's hearts, minds, and actions to bring about change. According to Kawasaki, the power of enchantment enables one to maneuver through difficult decisions, break entrenched habits, defy the wisdom of crowds, and get colleagues to work for long-term, mutually beneficial goals.
