    “Let My People Go Surfing” by Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard 

    Sharing the lessons learned in growing too fast, changing direction and building a unique corporate brand. In this biography, he outlines the shift from a mountaineering supply and equipment company into a privately owned, global gear and outdoor clothing icon.

    There’s no need to read the book. You can find a YouTube video or podcast interview. Bring a Patagonia story or your own experience from working at a company that faced a crossroads moment or crisis that led to reinvention.

    • June 29, 2021
    • 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM (EDT)
    • Virtual event (Zoom link provided in email confirmation)

    The uncertainty of the pandemic economy has created a turbulent environment for companies. Beyond the pandemic though, the lifecycle of business always includes periods of significant transition. So, how can companies follow CCI tenets to ensure that culture and community is built and then maintained during these inevitable transitions?

    This program is an expert panel coming to discuss transition advice and stories on significant change. Every transition is unique: acquisition, management shift, or entering a hybrid work environment post-pandemic.

    Join us on the 29th for this discussion!
