The Luxury and Retail Club at William and Mary is proud to host Patagonia on 10/26/11. Tetsuya O’ Hara, Director of Advanced Research and Development at Patagonia will be at the Mason School of Business to speak on the topic of Sustainable Competitive Advantage. Since this event brings a lot of value to students and faculty at W&M, we have invited the Net Impact club to collaborate with us in hosting this event.
As a clothing company, Patagonia is a designer of outdoor clothing and gear for silent sports such as alpine climbing, fly fishing, hiking/trekking, rock climbing, ski/snowboarding, surfing, trail running, travel, and yoga. In each sport, reward comes in the form of hard-won grace and moments of connection between the user and nature.
As a global citizen, Patagonia is a pioneer in its strategy to use its business as an environmental change agent. The company’s mission is to: Build the best product, cause no unnecessary harm, use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis.
Come hear about a great company from people who live the Patagonia mission every day, in every way.
We look forward to your participation.
