Kevin Thompson: "Don't let your Ego get in your way", the CMO of the Princess Grace Foundation.

we must approach our business with humility and service? It is the
core of what we must do in our industry to better service our clients
and each other so that we can continue to elevate our profession and
society as a whole.
Kevin is now the CMO of the Princess Grace Foundation, and just as she
changed the world by becoming a royal with such elegance in the small
country of Monaco, I am anxious to see how Kevin will take that
responsibility and help her legacy live on and be discovered by other
Thank you for the conversation, Kevin, and for the great work you are
doing in the world as well.
