Be ready to meet our session leader, Kevin Mireles, and your fellow participants.

Please arrive at 11:30 am. Eat. Mingle. Make new friends.

Join us for this important TIGER Talk!

Today, the US is the #1 global player in the legacy fossil-fuel economy.

Its position is similar to IBM’s in the computing marketplace of the 1980s. IBM dazzled with record profits in 1990, but just three years later, it posted the biggest loss in US history, as PCs moved from the market’s fringe to front-and-center!

In today’s energy economy, China is positioned like Microsoft was in the 1990 computing market. China is way ahead of the US in the smaller but rapidly expanding low-carbon technologies that will dominate the decades ahead. And, like IBM in 1990, key sectors of the US economy are facing big threats today as the world rapidly transitions to cleaner technologies.

Sustainability is no longer a fringe thing. Instead, it’s becoming critical to staying competitive in our rapidly-changing world. Fortunately, hundreds of billions of dollars in public and private funds are available to help us make the transition.

The catch? You must know where to look and what to ask for. But who has time to invest in figuring out how to remake your business and/or your community in this cauldron of change?

To fill this gap, our presenter, Kevin Mireles, will share:
🔥 Key trends shaping the future of sustainable energy markets

🔥 Why China’s clean-economy positions it to dominate the future global economic order.

🔥 What California gets right, and what Ohio needs to do to compete

🔥 New sources of funding

🔥 How to integrate sustainability into your product development and corporate strategy – to help your profits and our planet

🔥 Why it’s critical that we create industry-specific clean economic-development strategies

A world-changing economic tsunami is coming. Join Kevin to learn how we can surf it, and not get crushed by it!
