What’s your idea worth spreading?
Climate change is arguably the greatest threat to humanity and other species that our generation faces. We acknowledge that corporate interests are driving us to continue to destroy the planet and degrade humanity. But what if corporations became activists? What if it was in their best interest to do business with purpose? This groundswell is already underway and it may be the source of hope we need, at the speed we need, to mitigate the impacts of climate change.
What is a significant accomplishment, and why is that important to you?
For the past 10 years, Jill has been actively working in both environmentalism and business, creating solutions that reduce environmental impacts while making businesses more successful. Her company, Synergy, has won awards for environmental excellence and won that national Nicol Entrepreneurship award for best business concept in Canada.
What are you passionate about?
Jill is passionate about creating solutions that address multiple issues, and forming partnerships between worlds that do not often collaborate. She is the co-author of three books on green business, and has started non-profits that are contributing to a sustainable community on Vancouver Island.
What do you want people to take away from your TEDx talk?
