Captains of the Fashion Industry: Gurus of Denim – April 27, 7 p.m.

WHAT: Attend a presentation by fashion industry professionals.

USC Marshall, USC Roski Welcome Captains of Fashion Industry

On April 27, the world of high fashion comes to USC as trendsetters and tastemakers gather for the latest
installment of the Captains of Fashion Industry lecture series. Organized by USC Marshall and the USC Roski
School of Fine Arts, the event brings together the ‚gurus of denim‛: Adriano Goldschmied, the name behind
Gap, Diesel, AG, Adriano Goldschmied Jeans, Goldsign, A Gold E and others, and Jerome Dahan, founder and
CEO of Citizens of Humanity. Their vision has widespread implications for both business and fashion in California,
where twenty-two percent of all garments are denim.

According to Mark Werts, founder and CEO of American Rag CIE and sponsor of the upcoming lecture, the series
grew out of an awareness by the USC Board of Councilors that promoting an interchange of ideas between the
academic and business communities could have tangible benefits for both. Bringing people to campus to share
personal stories about a broad range of industries, says Werts, a USC alumnus, offers tremendous value to MBAs
and other students, who get a window into real-world experiences, what Werts calls the ‚blood and guts‛ of
running a business. It also allows students to see first-hand the critical importance of ‚following your heart and
doing things with passion.‛

The free lecture will take place from 7 pm to 9 pm in Harris Hall’s Gin D. Wong Auditorium (Room 101), and is
open to the public.

Delta Sigma Pi: The Secrets of the Rich – April 24, 6-8 p.m.

WHAT: Attend a lecture by Tim Ferriss, author of The 4-Hour Workweek

Delta Sigma Pi is proud to present The Secrets of the New Rich, featuring TIMOTHY FERRISS,
author of The 4-Hour Workweek, a New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today #1 best-seller.

                                Mr. Ferriss will discuss a range of topics, namely productivity, finding one's passion,
                                making the most of life and finding hope in a time of crisis.

                                Ferriss offers a different way of thinking; he will inspire students to take advantage
                                of this time to overcome fears, sharpen old skills and acquire new ones. What he
                                teaches is how to become a better person. Because in reality, once one has
                                achieved that - and few have - finding a job will not only be easy, it will be the least
                                of one's problems.

Known by his associates as a ‚productivity guru,‛ Ferriss emphasizes a method of ‚lifestyle design‛ in which he
throws the conventional idea of a 9-5 job out the window. Instead, Ferriss has found ways to become more
efficient, thereby increasing productivity while committing less time to ‚work‛ and more time to life.

Tim received his BA from Princeton University in 2000, where he studied in the Neuroscience and East Asian
Studies departments. He developed his nonfiction writing with Pulitzer Prize winner John McPhee and formed his
life philosophies under Nobel Prize winner Kenzaburo Oe. He is 31, and The 4-Hour Workweek is his first book.

Whether you're an overworked employee or an entrepreneur trapped in your own business, The 4-Hour
Workweek is the compass for a new and revolutionary world. Whether your dream is escaping the rat race, high-
end world travel, monthly five-figure income with zero management, or just living more and working less, this
book is the blueprint. Accolades include the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today #1 best-seller.
