Melink_Steve_Cas_printLuncheon Keynote: The Clean Energy Revolution is Here!
Some wait for government to solve big problems like climate change and seize big opportunities like long term economic growth. But successful business leaders are stepping up like never before to fill the vacuum and create a better world for our children and future generations. How? By embracing clean energy as a strategic opportunity and the way of the future. Why? Because it’s the right thing to do and nothing enhances a company’s brand and reputation in the marketplace like integrity for all. This allows them to attract and retain the best talent and grow their top and bottom lines – while serving as upstanding citizens and improving our economy, security, and environment. Come learn about the business case for clean energy and transcendent leadership.

Speaker: Steve Melink, Chief Executive Officer, Melink Corporation
Author of CEO Power & Light – Transcendent Leadership for a Sustainable World
