It's going to be another great conference! Things will be kicked-off by General Colin L. Powell in the Keynote, there will be many great speakers, and will be closed by Paul Hawken.
General Powell has made another career of sharing his lessons of leadership, honed through his distinguished military service, his tenure as the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and his role as Secretary of State. His keen insights and global perspective are especially relevant to our movement in these times of great challenge and change.
Paul Hawken has authored four national bestsellers – "The Next Economy," "Growing a Business," "The Ecology of Commerce" and "Blessed Unrest" – and co-authored "Natural Capitalism" with Amory Lovins. He is currently CEO of OneSun Energy, which is focused on ultra low-cost solar PV based on green chemistry and biomimicry.Going to the Expo?? Come by and see us, we will be in Booth#1296.

We will also be introducing our latest development, PlanetRestore.
