Embracing Crazy Ideas with Kobi Yamada
Dallas, TX – Innovators, change-makers, disruptors, and idea people create the solutions that make a difference in today’s world. Is there ever an idea that’s too crazy? Not in Kobi Yamada’s book, it’s not. Embracing crazy ideas is what Yamada is all about.
Yamada is a New York Times best-selling author and the CEO of Compendium, Inc. He started Compendium 30 years ago to bring thoughtful and inspiring gifts to the masses. And then he had a crazy idea to write a picture book. That book, “What Do You Do with an Idea?” led to others.
Odham and Yamada discuss the nature and value of ideas and putting action into inspiration. They also delve into Yamada’s company, Compendium.
“Compendium, at its heart, wants to make gifts,” Yamada said. “And they want to make gifts for people to share, connect, appreciate, and celebrate. We make journals, gift books, greeting cards, pop-open cards, and children’s books. We love the power of words. We love inspiration, and that inspiration is sort of in the DNA of the company. It’s something that ties and threads each product together.”
Kobi Yamada is a multiple New York Times best-selling author with books in over 30 languages. His books have sold millions of copies and inspired a dance performance, a symphony performance, a musical theater performance, and an upcoming animated film.
