“I’m a proud supporter of the TSSS.  This is an amazing forum that brings sustainability professionals together in a casual atmosphere to learn about one another’s achievements and to share best practices and key learnings.  It’s an excellent opportunity to meet peers and innovators and  to apply what you’ve learned to challenges in your own role.”

“At the first event I attended, I conversed with more than six different leaders of industry in the sustainability movement. Since that meeting I’ve followed up with a number of the contacts that I made which have led to opportunities for partnership, client relationships and friendship. The value of the TSSS event was not only to get informed about current sustainability news, but more importantly to further the work I do in sustainability through connecting with like-minded leaders. I look forward to attending many more successful TSSS events and collaborating with sustainability change-makers.”

– Ryan Turnbull

“In our busy society with so many events competing for the precious resource of our time, Brad and TSSS deliver on their value proposition. These events offer speakers who educate you on the latest trends and they also provide an excellent opportunity to network with other attendees.  I have learned a lot at TSSS events and hope that I contributed to this learning when I was the speaker.  TSSS events leave you with the feeling that you have been improved by the experience.  Great job Brad – keep up your efforts to move our industry forward.”
