1) Tell us a little about yourself?
I’m a change management consultant with more than a decade of diverse client experiences in transforming human behavior at work and influencing leadership talent strategies. I’ve worked across many industries helping companies realize the value and impact of its employees and have seen amazing opportunities for change toward more sustainable operations in many places we all work.
2) What interested you about the EcoApprentice model/Why did you choose to serve on the EcoApprentice Advisory Board?
Everything I do is driven by my passions: authenticity, the environment, and making the world a better place to work are my top 3. When I met Richard and we talked about EcoApprentice, I felt a real connection: to his passion around the model, to the impact it will have on the students and the businesses and most of all, his authentic approach to the business, operations, web design and its users. I am so excited to be a part of the EcoApprentice team and to have been invited along on this journey!
3) How important is the sustainability issue to your clients?
Many of my clients have sustainability efforts in progress and recognize the importance of changing many ways their business interacts with and impacts the world. That said, I see much more focus on products, innovation and technology than on changing employee behavior or work environments to reduce energy consumption and waste. My hope is that EcoApprentice will foster solutions in all these realms, including how we change ourselves to improve sustainability and positively influence climate change.
4) How do you think EcoApprentice can benefit businesses?
Beyond the business benefit of the EcoSolutions a company will get from using the site; EcoApprentice is also a great opportunity to increase marketing efforts & customer visibility in the sustainable space and to attract sustainable-focused talent. Being a business member of EcoApprentice can result in leaner operating costs AND innovative sustainable solutions!
