I recently had the privilege of listening to a speech delivered by David C. Novak, Chairman and CEO of Yum! Brands Inc ("Yum"). As I listened to him share many of his own personal experiences, successes, and failures, I found inspiration on many levels.
As the arch rivals Notre Dame and Navy battled it out at the Emerald Isle Classic, I ran out on the pitch wearing a T-shirt with "KFC - STOP Deforestation" and scored a touchdown before being escorted away by security at the packed out Aviva stadium.
My buddies and I at the Dogwood Alliance, a North Carolina forest protection non-profit, decided the time had come to speak truth to the One Percenters, so we drove to Louisville, Kentucky, to crash Yum's annual shareholder meeting.
