WHARTON CLUB's GREEN BUSINESS SUMMIT INVITES ALL TIGERS at SPECIAL RATES, as alliance partners.  See "REGISTRATION" below.

REGISTER NOW to see Kathleen Matthews, Executive VP - Marriott International, one of many high level experts and presenters at this conference.

She's led Marriott's widely acclaimed Green Marriott program, which grew
dramatically since its inception into one of the most comprehensive in the
corporate world. The effort builds bridges among the workforce, suppliers,
and communities. All of this translates into bottom line benefits for Marriott
and its shareholders.

Which principles does Marriott champion, and which outcomes does Marriott
generate? Join us to find out. Plus: Amr ElSawy (Noblis), author Bruce Piasecki.

WHY ATTEND THIS CONFERENCE?  Would you prefer going beyond reactive
responses, and instead, learn creative solutions from experts who've "been there"?

Among the many prominent presenters --
- Brian Castelli, EVP and COO, the Aliiance to Save Energy
- Carol Holding, President-Holding Associates, Inc., a NYC-based brand strategy consultancy
- Leslie Carothers, President of the Environmental Law Institute
- Ira Feldman, President, Greentrack Strategies
- Barry Naft, President, Environment International, advisor to corporations, NGOs and others.

The "Greening of America" is generating gold in revenues and profits for major businesses. Billions are invested annually, and the rewards -- from renewable fuels to GE's Ecomagination (driving over $40 billion in revenues) -- can be huge.  Total investments in renewables, clean tech and more in coming decades will be in the trillions of dollars, and revenues in the hundreds of billions annually.  The world continues to grapple with the geopolitical and economic realities of skyrocketing fuel and food prices, water shortages and greenhouse gas emissions.  It's all familiar, and yet its impact is profound.

Still, good results won't just happen -- even with major investments. You must understand critical issues, from strategy to implementation, from finance to communication, from legal issues to innovation, to succeed in the US and global green wave.

Are you signed up, but know colleagues who could benefit from the current fabulous value?  Or maybe you've been holding off, and your schedule is either open or not just 2 weeks away.
ASK YOURSELF the following to decide about the value of this Summit for you or your colleagues:
  • Could you benefit from new strategies to reduce costs, generate revenues from eco-friendly solutions, or even capitalize on innovations?
  • Might there be better ways to communicate with shareholders, customers, financial sources and others, so that you can ride the Green Wave more profitably?
  • What can you learn from what leading companies and others, such as government units, are already doing?
  • Might your organization be able to gain contacts in private industry or government for sales or financing?

Here (in brief) is what you and your colleagues get if you simply add up the numbers:

  • A full-day conference, all meals and materials
  • Pre and post-conference receptions (top networking opportunities) 
  • Insights and lessons from action-biased leaders from business, government, nonprofits/NGOs and academia
    • 3 - Great keynotes alone are worth learning from:

Join us and find out how green is fueling Marriott's business and building engagement with stakeholders.
