Most people spend their working lives as employees working for someone else. However, a growing number of people are choosing to become entrepreneurs and start their own enterprise, particularly enterprises that they believe will create a better world. In this presentation, David will talk about his journey from being an employee to launching a number of sustainable businesses and the lessons (both painful and positive) he has learned along the way. If you have ever considered becoming a sustainable business entrepreneur or are an entrepreneur struggling to survive against what seem like impossible odds, this presentation may give you some valuable tips and ideas that could fundamentally change your career path and your approach to work.
David Van Seters is President of Sustainability Ventures, a sustainability consulting firm that makes the business case for sustainability in government, organizations and communities.
