Exclusive to Camber Outdoors, the Thought-Leader Keynote presentations are a unique platform for CEOs in the active-outdoor industries to engage a peer-to-peer dialogue that explores business sustainability and growth through leadership diversity and company culture.

Camber Outdoors recognizes VF and its many iconic brands, including The North Face, JanSport, Eagle Creek, Smartwool, Timberland, Icebreaker, and Reef for their work to ensure the outdoors is accessible to all, and for their unwavering commitment to reflect the demographics of participants within their workforce. During his keynote, Rendle will talk about the role and responsibility of Purpose-led companies and the importance of helping to advance inclusion and diversity throughout the outdoor industry.

“We are honored to provide a forum for Steve to share his perspectives and expertise with the industry leaders and influencers who attend Outdoor Retailer Summer Market,” said Deanne Buck, executive director of Camber Outdoors. “Whether through his own actions or those of VF and its brands, his influence on the outdoor industry has been inspirational and lasting, and we look forward to hearing his unique insights on how we can collectively continue to elevate our industry.”

In previous years, attendees have benefited from the insights of trailblazers such as former CamelBak CEO Sally McCoy, REI Co-op CEO and President Jerry Stritzke, Burton Snowboards CEO and Co-Founder Donna Carpenter, Patagonia CEO Rose Marcario, and many more.

“Launched in 2012,” continued Buck, “the thread that connects each presentation is that presenters speak from their own experiences and focus on what is important to themselves and their businesses. We are proud to be leading this conversation and showcasing companies and leaders who are trail blazers.”
