Charlie Bresler, Former President of Men's Warehouse, and current Executive Director of The Life You Can Save, will be giving a talk about his career in the retail industry and what led him towards philanthropy. He'll explain how philanthropy can play an important role in finding meaning in your career.

Charlie was recruited to Men’s Wearhouse in 1993 as head for HR, stores, and marketing. Ultimately, he became President. In 2008, Charlie stepped down from this role but has remained a consultant to the CEO and senior executives at Men’s Wearhouse since that time. In 2012, Charlie joined philosopher Peter Singer at his organization The Life You Can Save as Executive Director. The organization seeks to change the way people perceive their responsibility to help fight the devastating effects of global poverty. "I often have the feeling that the life I am saving is my own, because helping to ameliorate suffering and saving lives among the world's poorest people through the work of great charities like those we recommend is such a rare privilege."
