Last month, at our first clinic of the year (Focus: 2013), 180 L2 members received a half-day tutorial on the near-future of China, New Retail, and the ‘Enterprise Effect.’ The first session on China was particularly well-received, with presentations from the Estée Lauder team responsible for Osaio, the beauty brand’s first line developed specifically for China, Doug Guthrie, Dean of George Washington University’s School of Business, and Maureen Mullen, who heads up both Research & Advisory here at L2.
