tory_burch

Tory Burch built a billion-dollar business from the ground up, by speeding forward when others might have hit pause, and showing watchful patience when others may have gone full tilt. In our live onstage interview, she shows how this approach plays out in her global business — and in her impactful foundation that supports women business owners. With appearances by the Polynesian Voyaging Society’s Lehua Kamalu and Affectiva’s Rana el Kaliouby.

“When you’re an entrepreneur, things come at you morning, noon and night. You have to be agile. You have to be equipped to deal with turmoil”

— Tory Burch
