As the summer winds down, I encourage you to consider attending an upcoming sustainability conference. There are five reasons to attend the Doing Business & Doing Good Summit.
- It’s free
All you have to do is enroll at the conference website. There’s no catch. Even if your 2017 conference budget is spent by now, you can still attend.
- It’s virtual
Your won’t incur any time and expense for travel or accommodations. As a low / no carbon footprint event, the summit walks the talk on its sustainability message.
- It’s asynchronously convenient
The summit starts on September 4 but you can watch the professionally produced videos at your leisure any time after that. Each video is 30-45 minutes long—enough time to convey some good ideas but short enough that you can fit it into your busy schedule.
- It has great content
The conference features video interviews by Sophie Wisbrun with more than 25 sustainable leaders, gurus & pioneers from the corporate world, entrepreneurs, community leaders and bestselling authors. Speakers include: Paul Polman, CEO Unilever; KoAnn Vikoren Skrzyniarz, Founder Sustainable Brands; Virginie Helias, Global VP Sustainability Procter & Gamble; Tom Szaky, Founder & CEO TerraCycle; Andrew Winston, best selling author: Green to Gold, Green Recovery, The Big Pivot; Dr John Izzo, Best selling Author & Business Visionary; Berend Aanraad, VP The Natural Step International; Julian Hill-Landolt, Director Sustainable Lifestyles WBCSD; and Bert van Son, Founder and CEO MudJeans. Oh, yeah. And me (blush). The interviews not only share inspirational stories, but also very practical tools, frameworks, tips and strategies so you can instantly use them to accelerate your efforts to create a better world and champion sustainability in your work.
- You get free gifts
Even virtual conferences can give out swag. You will receive a free gift from each expert: a free book, a free webinar, a discount on a sustainable product, a free consultation etc. What’s not to like?
This is the world’s first, global, free, online sustainable summit. Looking forward to “seeing” you there!
