Mid-Autumn Roundup

It’s been a whirlwind season!

Just a few highlights:

Most recently in early October, colleague Lakis Polycarpou and I (of R2: Risk & Resilience, a social media enterprise for sustainability initiatives) moderated a fine panel on sustainable supply chains in the current age of natural disasters at NYC’s Commit! Forum.  Our splendid speakers included Kaan Katircioglu of IBM, Adam Carrell of E&Y, and Cristiana Fragola, recently with NYC’s department of sustainability management.

That workshop came on the heels of the illuminating Planetworkshops conference in a week earlier in Evian, France, where, again representing R2, I spoke on a fascinating panel on social media and sustainable consumption, with US and European speakers. Planetworkshops compiled a video of the conference.

And, reaching back to mid-September, I began the whole trip with a presentation at the Los Angeles Social Enterprise Alliance Summit–on how social entrepreneurs can best exploit social media, using some of R2’s research and recommendations.

Stay tuned here for on more exciting tips and travels with R2!
