Green Economy Training & Speaking Engagements

I inspire, motivate, and prepare audiences for future trends in the new green economy. My message is a positive one about exciting innovations accelerating the green economy and changing the landscape for all businesses. I use lots of examples of businesses and entrepreneurs who are creating disruptive, mind-blowing, green solutions.

Business and environmental professional participants will be:

  • Motivated, inspired and excited about business opportunity in the new green economy.

Are you wary and weary of doom and gloom reports of environmental crises?

Are you an environmentalist at heart, but don’t see the connection to business?

Are you an environmental professional, frustrated by clients who undertake a single project to correct an environmental impact, then end their involvement rather than continuing on a sustainability journey?

  • Armed with communication strategies for engaging others.

Do you suspect what social science research confirms — that rational arguments alone for sustainability are not persuasive? What does work?

  • Fortified with a mindset for keeping up with the fast-breaking developments in the green economy.

Are you confused by the media blitz on going green? Not sure what’s hype and what’s real?
