"With the increasing fusion of entertainment, politics and the environment, TalentPlus GREEN gives businesses, associations and groups of all kinds access to those innovators and visionaries on topics from climate change and depletion of species to meeting global resource demands and green technologies," said Sharon Tucci, founder of TalentPlus and co-founder of TalentPlus GREEN.
TalentPlus GREEN also works with corporations, product lines and trade associations to develop and advocate their sustainable policies and build validation for positive ecological business initiatives. Among the eco-celebrities in the TalentPlus GREEN line-up are Dr. Heidi Cullen, chief climatologist for The Weather Channel; Jean-Michel, Fabien and Celine Cousteau, the "First Family of the Ocean" and filmmakers; Dr. Kathryn Clark, former chief medical specialist for NASA and its "Return to Space" mission; biodiversity expert, Dr. Peter Raven; eco-businesswoman, Jacquelyn Ottman; author "Ocean Friendly Cuisine" James O. Fraioli; Dr. Joe MacInnis, deep sea medical explorer; Olav Heyerdahl, grandson of adventurer Thor Heyerdahl; rock star and environmentalist Mick Fleetwood; Ron Cogan, publisher of The Green Car Journal; and Roger Payne and Lisa Harrow, marine mammal and theater professionals of the celebrated Sea Change; and cheetah conservationist Dr. Laurie Marker.
"What differentiates TalentPlus GREEN from other bureaus and agencies is that we are solely dedicated to environmental challenges and solutions," said Paul Zemitzsch, co-founder of TalentPlus GREEN. "We don't just represent eco-experts and explorers behind a desk and on the phone. We are among them on expedition, in the field and behind the cameras. Our goal is to forge relationships among our clients and companies, associations and educational institutions based on finding the right collaborations that bring value and insight."
TalentPlus GREEN has already inked endorsements and corporate alignments with La Prairie cosmetics, Dow Chemical Co., GANT clothing, Samsonite, The Ritz Carlton Hotels, the American Chemistry Council, Regent Seven Seas, Identity Games, and London Towne Press, among others.
"Many companies and groups want speakers who really 'walk the walk' on the environment," Tucci said. "Whether it's for corporate environmental consulting, trade convention, sustainability conference, endorsement, or sponsorship, there is a demand for legitimate experts with a vision of the challenges and solutions our planet is facing."
