If you could have coffee with any business leader or industry expert, who would you choose, and why?
If I could have coffee with any business leader it would be Seth Godin – although he would have a tea because he kicked caffeine years ago. I’ve read Godin’s books in first year university, his work on how ideas spread, marketing, leadership, and his history in start up companies is inspirational.
