  20. 20. What do people say about SB Conferences?“SB once again exceeded my expectations as each day I thought tomyself, ‘I am so glad I am here.’ Here are a few things that trulydifferentiate SB for me from the other conferences I regularlyattend: 1) speakers stay beyond their speech and continue toparticipate in the ongoing dialogue; 2) SB is an open conversationthat just keeps going and people at all levels are willing toengage; 3) I can go back to work with at least a few ideas of thingsI can do immediately; 4) More ideas are generated for me, even inindirect relation to our business, here than anyplace else.”– Leilani C. Latimer, Director, Sustainability Initiatives, Sabre Holdings“This was my first experience with a Sustainable BrandsConference and I found it to be unexpectedly unique ... partrevival, without being hokey. The community convening thereis surprisingly informed, influential, sincere, open and excitedabout collaborating to build a flourishing future. I look forward toexpanding our relationship with Sustainable Brands from here.”– David Bennett, VP, Corporate Partnerships, National Geographic“First, I want to let you know how much I appreciate the incrediblework you are doing, and especially, the beautiful, collaborativeworld you create for the SB conference. For me, this year was justas valuable, just as impressive, and just as inspiring as last year’sconference. Perhaps even more so, as I was able to see firsthandthe progress that has been made in just one year’s time, and tomeet even more people who are trying to make a difference. Ihave never experienced anything like the event you have created,and it has changed my expectation of what’s possible. My deepestgratitude to you and all the people on your team who created thisyear’s success.”– June Holder, Manager, Sustainability Communications, UPS“I hope you’ve slumbered deeply!
