About the Conference
Brainchild of bestselling author and marketer, LYNN SERAFINN, 7GGC is neither trade show nor training event, but a meeting of minds where business owners, large and small, along with journalists, conscious consumers and members of volunteer groups will gather together to create a vision for the future of business, marketing and commerce.
SERAFINN says, "The goal of 7GGC is to bring together business owners, marketers, media professionals, journalists, conscious consumers and eco-focused community groups, who will create a Tipping Point for positive change, where ethics, values, society and the environment become integral and equal parts of the equation in our 'bottom line'.
She adds, "We hope this conference will open a dialogue about how business owners and marketers can take greater responsibility for the impact we have upon our natural environment, as well as the health, happiness and economy of our global society. The primary question delegates will be addressing throughout the three days will be 'How can we heal humanity and the planet by changing the way we sell?'"
