I am a big fan of fashion designer/entrepreneur Tom Ford and how he has gone about building his brand and his company. Ford’s brand story is the story of a creative person knowing his true self and what he stands for. I found this fantastic podcast of a conversation between him and Kinvara Balfour hosted by Apple in its Apple Store, Regent Street, London. It should be on your must listen today list. (Link)
