Brownshoes-Leeway: Presentation by Mr. Harlan Chang and his team on the shoe design process, sourcing, and issues the company is facing, especially in regards of countering rising labor wages and low productivity. Mr. Chang gave the students his point of view on China from a political, economical, business, and consumer standpoint, which helped the students realize just how much culture ties in with business. The group had lunch at a Thai restaurant at a mall and got to further interact with Mr. Chang and his team afterwards.
