Guy Kawasaki is the Chief Evangelist at Canva, the easy-to-use graphic design platform that prides itself on giving its users the tools and knowledge to make graphic design as simple as possible. Guy is a multi-hyphenate who is best known for his stints at Apple—being the software evangelist from 1983-1987—and returning to become their Chief Evangelist in 1995-1997. He has also worked, invested and advised other exciting companies, as well.

In this wide-ranging conversation, Guy talks about why people should not try and replicate Apple’s success—and what all successful companies have in common. He also talks about what drew him to Canva and his core beliefs on marketing.

Guy has a podcast titled “Guy Kawasaki’s Remarkable People Podcast.” In each episode, Guy speaks to thought leaders, legends and iconoclasts. New episodes of his podcast come out every Wednesday morning on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts.
