I am often asked what makes EcoTuesday unique. Why spend your Tuesday evening with our group rather than being off doing a dozen other possibilities that evening? The answer is definitely the quality of attendees and speakers.
Since its debut in L.A., we have been incredibly fortunate to draw in a high caliber of people from a myriad of professions and talents.
September’s EcoTuesday was a wonderful validation of my assertions that it is both the quality of attendees and speakers that maintain EcoTuesday’s integrity/reputation.
Our speaker, Scott Fraser, VP of Operations for Origin Oil, commented on how pleased he was to receive so many interesting and passionate questions from us. When I joked that he had a bit of a tough audience in terms of the detailed questions he was asked, he said he was actually quite pleased because it meant that he was in the presence of interested people who actually care.
I am hard pressed to think of a better compliment about our group, and I hope that it inspires a sense of pride to be building our green family in Los Angeles.
For those of you who have been attending EcoTuesday since the start, you know I’ve always had pretty serious subject matter from our speakers, and I think this is what has built us as a respectable group. With that said, however, I want to give us a little extra fun and lightheartedness this October for EcoTuesday.
We will be having Gen Anderson, host of Gen’s Guiltless Gourmet, lead our evening with some fun recipes while we discuss the benefits of healthy eating.
RSVP for October now, as it will be very helpful to know for how many people to accommodate. And, you know I’m going to end by reminding you to keep our networking community meaningful and active by ... UPDATING YOUR PROFILE, complete with your beautiful mug shot! And, spread the word to other smart, savvy people so we can keep our group strong.
