A visionary global leader, entrepreneur, adventurer and bestselling author, Blake Mycoskie is Founder and Chief Shoe Giver of TOMS, and the catalyst behind the now-ubiquitous One for One® movement. He's championed a forward-looking model for corporate responsibility and conscious consumerism, and continues to assist disadvantaged people worldwide-proof that you don't have to choose between making a living and making a difference. To date, TOMS has given over 45 million pairs of new shoes to children in need. Additionally, the company and its other gratis products and services have created jobs in developing countries, and have helped fund the restoration of people's eyesight and the improvement of water quality in various communities.

Mycoskie's trailblazing approach to business earned him and TOMS the Secretary of State's Award of Corporate Excellence (ACE). He was also named on Fortune's "40 under 40" list, recognizing him as one of the top young businessmen in the world. Recognizing his ongoing commitment, Richard Branson recently asked Blake to join The B Team, a group of worldwide leaders which seeks to catalyze a movement of corporate executives who embrace a better way of doing business, both for the well-being of people and the planet.
