Networking Breakfast debrief

Last Friday we had our 3rd Networking Breakfast at the Stuart School of Business. We sold-out yet again with 39 individuals from a wide variety of industries and businesses. There were many new faces in the audience, which is a testament to the fact that our network continues to grow.

Our topic this month was Networking 101: everyone knows networking is important, but yet we all still dread it on some level. We talked through a lot of the underlying issues and some strategies for tackling them.

I hope you can join us for our next breakfast on February 23. We'll tentatively be discussing how the definition of sustainability varies by industry - and how that complicates how we market ourselves as sustainable enterprises.

Welcome our newest members!

I learned about the Sustainable Business Network on January 27th at a Net Impact Social. I lead the Tutor/Mentor Connection and interact with many social entrepreneurs at the Skoll Foundations's web site.

I encourage businesses who want to do social good, and good business, to read my tutor/mentor blog at and see how your business can connect with youth in Chicago or other cities.

I look forward to meeting some of you in future networking events.
