My Interview with Likeable CEO, Dave Kerpern

Hi all,

So this interview occurred last year and it was the first interview I ever did for my Huffington Post column, but I thought it was about time I shared it here.

Dave is one of my favorite entrepreneurs to follow. A three-time best-selling author and one of the most influential people on LinkedIn and Twitter in the B2B space, Dave’s passion for caring about others and philosophy of always providing value has definitely been a tremendous influence on the way I do business.

Last Spring, I interviewed him about management tips from his book, The Art of People. Enjoy.

He managed to give me his full time and attention even as we zoomed over to his next appointment, and for that I am very grateful.

In this interview, we chatted about his new book, The Art of People, and some of the tips and strategies it has for building and managing an effective team.
