Wide range of perspectives creates profound picture of opportunity against backdrop of changing economic environment and societal demands

Feb. 18 /CSRwire/ - BURLINGAME, Calif. - February 18, 2009 - Sustainable Life Media today announced a substantially expanded board of advisors assembled to help steer and play host to Sustainable Brands '09, taking place May 31 - June 4, 2009 at the Monterey (CA) Conference Center. Now in its third year, the 3-day conference has become the preeminent gathering of sustainability, brand and design leaders focused on sustainability as a driver of revenue growth and brand equity in a complex and rapidly changing world.

Combining experience across various industry sectors - from technology, to consumer packaged goods to retail and beyond - the advisory board's specific work groups will curate and devise plenary and breakout sessions, as well as many forms of interactive dialogue that address:

  • Emerging market forces and smart strategic response

  • Driving sustainable brand success in an economically strapped, Web 2.0 world

  • Next generation product, packaging, supply chain & materials innovation

  • New models for partnership and collaboration
"This core group of thought leaders, each of whom are Sustainable Brands alumni, shares our conviction that innovation for sustainability opens the door to enormous business opportunity for the future. More importantly, they bring deep experience, creativity and insight into what's working, and what's not, with respect to new business and governance models, metrics, product design and communications strategies" said KoAnn Vikoren Skrzyniarz, CEO of Sustainable Life Media. "While momentum in our community has been building for the past few years, the climate is finally right for real breakthrough progress.
