EcoTuesday – Sustainability Network Growing

EcoTuesday, the sustainable business leaders networking forum, is celebrating it’s two-year anniversary this Tuesday, Feb. 24th at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel in San Francisco. The featured speaker is Dave Rochlin, CEO of Climate Path and former COO of TransFair USA. Climate Path is applying transparency principles to carbon markets.

From it’s start in San Francisco in 2007, EcoTuesday has grown to a multi-city network of convenings, now including Detroit, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Seattle, Silicon Valley, and Washington DC.

Growth formula:

Unique format + thought leaders + passion

Unique format:

EcoTuesday has developed a unique format for structured networking where attendees share their personal passion area in sustainability during group a group introduction circle. This process allows people to find like minded individuals to explore collaboration through the powerful mechanism of shared personal passion. During the events there are also presentations from noted sustainability thought leaders, followed by a short interactive Q & A.

Who’s in the room:

What makes a networking event successful is bringing together the right people to make valuable contacts. EcoTuesday engages thought-leaders and decision-makers from many sectors to discuss trends and innovations in sustainability. Past speakers have included: Peter Liu (New Resource Bank), Jeff Mendelson (New Leaf Paper) and Kevin Danaher (Global Exchange/Green Festivals).

Building a network:

Going forward EcoTuesday is looking to grow their city network through their Ambassador Program and add additional functions to their website to enhance online networking and collaboration for participants.
