This past spring Todd and team were fortunate to share a case study at the IBM think conference. As part of the conference, the IBM team made a video where he had the chance to share the reason for starting KangoGift.
The video is available on the IBM website and a description is listed down below.
Years ago as a young employee. I felt over looked on many occasions and became disengaged. People weren't sharing with me the impact I was having on the organization. When I felt overlooked, I then channeled that energy to start KangoGift so that people who deserve recognition would receive it.
