With its unique One for One promise, the message of TOMS Shoes has swept campuses across the country. In this spirited talk, Blake Mycoskie relates his transformation from “typical business guy,” motivated by just money and success, to the founder of TOMS Shoes, a company that advocates “doing good by doing well.”
Mycoskie will show that it is possible to go your own way, to achieve success without sacrificing your dreams, and to make a difference in the world — all at the same time. In order to seize the day – Carpe Diem — one has to be familiar with the new set of societal and business rules facing young graduates.
In exploring the elements that have contributed to the success of TOMS Shoes, Mycoskie not only shows students a model of sustainable business practice, he also inspires them to go out and create their own, based on their lives and passions.
