If you are planning a conference, board meeting, or retreat, we have a variety of talks, keynote presentations, and interactive facilitated discussions designed for business, government, and community audiences.

See below for an example of a presentation given recently at the 2012 ECO Conference in Norfolk, VA.  The conference has a diverse audience of scientists, engineers, state and federal government, and military.

We are skilled certified facilitators, with a deep understanding of sustainable issues and ideas. We can help you and your group gain understanding and build consensus and commitment.

During our presentations, we provide an engaging mix of up-to-the-minute information and inspiring stories that are thought provoking, insightful, and constructive – we will leave your audience motivated, inspired, and informed.

Topics are tailored to meet the needs of your audience.  See the Topics section below for a sample of topics.
