Kendall Barber joins host Shannon Vander Meulen to talk about she has built a brand around a unique customer experience in creating Poppy Barley. Shannon and Kendall talk brand, culture, purpose and vision and discuss how Poppy Barley has managed to stay true to its values even through a global pandemic and tremendous growth.
Today, we welcome one of Poppy Barley's all-star founders, Kendall Barber, to the podcast!
A BCom grad from the University of Victoria, Kendall went on to study International Business at the Grenoble Ecole de Management in France before becoming the marketing director for several major Western Canadian companies. On the side, she started a much-loved Edmonton blog, City and Dale, where her "weekend to-do" round-ups and inspiration boards have become the source for the best in local eats, fashion, home décor and events. Other fun facts? She's mastered the art of baking cookies, and had the most unreal wedding in Italy last year.
In the land of made to measure boots and custom shoes, Kendall leads marketing + communications, business + web development, and HR + finance for Poppy Barley; she's the definition of a multi-tasker, fusing natural style and creativity with serious business smarts. And not only does she run her own company, she runs marathons, too.
