What are people saying about the Soul of the Next Economy?
Trevor Haynes

"This is both a great opportunity for current thought leaders to connect and brainstorm, and also an incredible opportunity to give young entrepreneurs an understanding of how social responsibility can enhance the success of a business."

"Today more than ever, the best and the brightest care more about why you do what you do and how you go about the ‘doing’ than what you do. The Forum speaks directly to this important emerging theme in the marketplace – a theme that I predict is not going anywhere!"

"The concept of Corporate Sustainability has come a long way from 'feel good' community projects to more complex strategic planning for a company. CSR has become the corporate DNA; 'It’s just how we do business'."

"It is when we come together with our unique, individual expertise and creativity that we can innovate and find value both for our own organizations and the world that we live in."
