“What do I take away from over 20 years at Nike? It’s this [brand leadership] model. It’s the “Know me,” “Inspire and Innovate for me,” and “Serve me,” and how they sort of feed each other; the depth of your knowledge, the breadth of your inspiration and innovation and the length of your relationship.”
