At the 26th Annual Gathering of Games, we had the opportunity to host Gregg Stebben from ForbesBooks Radio as he interviewed participants from this year's conference. Check out his interview with Thomas Hill below!



Thomas Hill III has been involved with the family business his entire life. Kimray is a family owned and operated manufacturing company in Oklahoma City. 

In his interview, Hill explains the ups and downs of taking over the family business established by his grandfather in 1948. His story, found in his book Recovering Leadership, reveals his path of running the company with a "wrong belief system", his termination and re-establishment as CEO at Kimray, and what he learned to come back as a better leader.

About The Great Game of Business

Our approach to running a company was developed to help close one of the biggest gaps in business: the gap between managers and employees. We call our open-book approach The Great Game of Business. What lies at the heart of The Game is a very simple proposition: The best, most efficient, most profitable way to operate a business is to give everybody in the company a voice in saying how the company is run and a stake in the outcome. Let us teach you how to develop a culture of ownership, where employees think, act and feel like owners.
