San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 16, 2009
EcoTuesday, a unique, structured monthly networking event for sustainable business leaders held concurrently in seven cities across the country, will feature Marianne Williamson as its speaker in September. Williamson is a best-selling author and internationally acclaimed spiritual teacher. EcoTuesday will be held at the Sir Francis Drake, 450 Powell Street, San Francisco on September 22nd from 6:30 to 9:00 pm.
Williamson will share her thoughts and perspectives on the increasingly strong connection between sustainability and spirituality. She will also touch upon topics such as, "How a spiritual shift among leaders in business can impact the entire planet," "Transforming fear to positivity and action: how to see new possibilities in spirituality and sustainability," and "How human consciousness on a business level has increased, and the places where we could all improve."
Williamson is an advocate of sustainability and committed to creating a planet that can work for everybody. In 1989, she founded Project Angel Food, a meals-on-wheels program that serves homebound people with AIDS in the Los Angeles area. Today, Project Angel Food serves over 1,000 people daily. Marianne also co-founded The Peace Alliance, a grass roots campaign supporting legislation to establish a U. S. Department of Peace. Her latest book, The Age of Miracles, was #2 on the New York Times Bestseller list. She also authored A Return to Love, which was #1 on the New York Times Bestseller list. In December 2006, a NEWSWEEK magazine poll named Marianne Williamson one of the fifty most influential baby boomers.
"There's been an elevation of consciousness in business over the past few years as leaders have realized that people and the planet are as important, if not more important, than the financial bottom line," said Nikki Pava, President, EcoTuesday. "True sustainability in the world can only be reached through a deep shift in our values, habits and patterns. This also applies to companies that bring products and services to the global marketplace."
EcoTuesday is committed to changing the way people do business. The monthly event provides a structured environment where sustainable business leaders network with one another and gain insight from industry thought-leaders and trendsetters. Everyone in the room quickly learns about everyone else during the "introduction circle".
