November of 2014 was an exciting month for me. My semester was nearly over, I was going to sunny LA after having won a sweepstake (I know-how cool is that!) and finally all of my summer networking had paid off with the opportunity to take part in an actual Corporate Food Waste Audit. I was more than excited; I was ecstatic! I was going to help observe and log results of an all day food waste audit at one of the hippest corporate offices in NYC for one of the trendiest company
As part of one of my course works this semester, we were asked to read Andrew’s latest book called,’The Big Pivot’. It was quite a fast and interesting read and full of concrete steps although sometimes it may feel like the steps are a little impractical to implement immediately in an established major company. The book’s title is taken from the reasoning that (in Andrew’s own words), ” We live in a fundamentally changed world. It’s time for your approach to strategy to chan
As events chair for my local netimpact chapter, I thought it would be a great idea to have annual panels on the state of sustainability in our part of the world.

I finally checked out their website to confirm this fact Any who, coming back to the event, it was a good
I am a member of my local Sierra Club chapter and am quite proud of that fact…till I read this lengthy but biased article written by a very good writer. Here’s the article..read it, you might enjoy it if you are cynical, capitalistic or both.. For those who would rather take my word for it than read it; first thanks! He’s basically trashing all environmental organizations that have any kind of corporate partnerships saying that profits and non-profits shouldn’t work together.
I bought this book amongst the numerous books displayed at the 2009 Netimpact conference. Probably the word ‘strategy’ and the fact that it was written by a former Sierra Club President is what made me pick this particular book. I must say, it was a very interesting reading and I finished in a record 5 days.
