The Ashley Stewart Movement: A Story of Reinvention Through Kindess, Social Media and Math

Want to hear about how a twice-bankrupt brick-and-mortar retailer with decades of operating losses and no corporate wi-fi as late as 2013 (!) became a cutting-edge and socially influential budding media brand in less than four years? Hear from James Rhee, long-time private equity investor turned unlikely CEO, as he walks through his approach to operations (from bond durations to Toyota production system tenets) and the convergence of life and business through social media.  Most importantly, learn how his emphasis on kindness and inclusiveness propelled a shocking cultural and technological revolution that drove one of the most successful financial exits of 2016.
