The BSR Conference brings together sustainability leaders and practitioners to build the business of a better world. Now entering its 23rd year, the BSR Conference is one of the world’s most influential sustainability events. In today’s era of fundamental change—with financial, political, environmental, technological, and social conditions evolving at warp speed—business is being reshaped globally. Only the resilient will survive and grow.

That is the focus of this year’s annual BSR Conference in San Francisco, November 3-5, 2015. If you have already registered for this year’s event or are deciding whether to attend, these two Twitter chats with BSR will get you excited and inspired for this years’ Conference before you set foot into the event.

Part one will take place Tuesday October 6, and will be an up-close-and-personal chat with the team behind the BSR Conference. Meet Melanie Janin (@melanie_janin), managing director of communications; Pamela Schwartz (@pswrtzbsr), director of the conference; and Hetal Shah (@hetal8278), conference associate. They will share highlights from the program and what inspired this year’s theme of Resilient Business, Resilient World.

  • Follow the main participants and #BSR15 hashtag.
