Parker Leadership Conference

The Parker Leadership Conference allows students to explore and sharply develop their leadership qualities. Attendees are provided with opinions and knowledge from professionals and established leaders with varying skill sets. Attendees will review, discuss, debate and present on the most challenging case studies. 

Simple Modern is an Oklahoma-City-based designer, distributor, and marketer of premium drinkware, food storage, and other products.   The company sold its first insulated water bottle on Amazon in 2016 and has since grown to sell more than 20 million units through Amazon, Target, Walmart, Sam’s Club, and its own website:

While known for its remarkable products, Simple Modern first and foremost exists to Give Generously.  To the company, this is more than just giving 10% of profits (which it does).  It means doing business differently as it acts generously towards our customers, partners, employees, and communities. 

With the backdrop of the global supply chain disruptions caused by the COVID-19 global pandemic, this case study will explore what it looks like for a company to live out its values in a challenging business environment.
