Challenges for the Sustainable Future: Panel Session

Mr. Dan Cherian, General Manager, Sustainable Business & Innovation Lab, Nike, Inc.
Mr. Dave Whorton, Founder & Managing Partner, TugBoat Ventures
Panel session moderated by James Euchner, RTM Editor-in-Chief, Vice President of Global Innovation, Goodyear.
Industry leaders already helping to shape a sustainable future discuss issues critical to continued business success by considering sustainability’s triple bottom line of people, profit, and planet through presentations and an engaging panel discussion. Explore the environmental or "planet" component and the availability of key resources with a focus on energy; examine the economic or “profit” element by looking at new business models and key economic trends; and discuss the influence of new communication/networking tools and changing educational paradigms that may redefine the social or “people” dimension.
