Green Breakfast Club
is a monthly networking event series for resource exchange and storytelling.Our events include a keynote speaker who is a Sustainability Leader, giving a keynote that is half success story half failure story. This is followed by a resource exchange where each attendee presents themselves, their 'gives' and their 'asks' - which is turned into a Resource Exchange List and shared with attendees. We began in NYC, have featured All-Star speakers, and are now expanding to new cities worldwide.
