Columbia University presents a talk by author Andrew Winston; the author of “The Big Pivot” will explore “the mega challenges of climate change, scarcity, and radical transparency that threaten our ability to run an expanding global economy and that are profoundly changing business as usual.”  He will provide cause for optimism as he profiles leaders in the business community who are bringing value to society and positioning themselves to capture the unprecedented opportunities that will emerge in responding to these challenges.  These individuals and companies, and others to come, will be “the winners of this new game who will profit mightily.”

The event will be followed by a book signing by the author. Register here.

Andrew Winston advises some of the worlds leading companies on how companies can navigate and profit from the worlds biggest environmental and social challenges. He is a globally recognized speaker, writer, and adviser on sustainable business. Andrew is also the co-author of the international best-seller Green to Gold (125,000 copies in seven languages).
