At the conclusion of his remarks, President Clinton sat down for an on-stage interview with Michael Greenberg, president of SKECHERS, where they discussed importance of strong leadership, communication, service and social media within the global marketplace. After the event, Greenberg noted: “It was an incredible honor to sit down for a conversation with President Clinton this afternoon. His perseverance and commitment to action through the Clinton Foundation and beyond is an inspiration to all. The theme of the SKECHERS Global Conference this year was Innovate to Elevate and the President’s message about institutionalizing constant change in a positive way speaks strongly to our company, our culture and everyone who has helped make SKECHERS a success story around the world.”
Adding to the motivational themes of the day, the conference also featured an appearance by elite runner Meb Keflezighi, who was wearing Skechers GOmeb Speed 3 shoes when he became the first American male in over three decades to win the Boston Marathon.
