Blake Mycoskie, founder and Chief Shoe Giver of TOMS Shoes, never made a pair of shoes, attended fashion school, or worked in retail but he created one of the most iconic companies in the world by giving new shoes to children in need. Start Something that Matters is the incredible story of the man behind TOMS and One for One™, the revolutionary business model that matches social good with sales.

Mycoskie shares his transformation from a “regular business guy,” motivated primarily by profit, into one of the emerging leaders in Conscious Capitalism. Mycoskie’s philosophy is defined by creating work that simultaneously fulfills our hunger for material success, philanthropic impact, and personal meaning.

Dress code for the event: Wear your TOMS!
