Three weeks from today, we’ll welcome many of you to San Francisco for the 23rd annual BSR Conference, Resilient Business, Resilient World. We’re putting the final touches on our 2015 agenda, and we’re excited to introduce a number of new aspects and events to keep you energized, refreshed, and active November 3-5.
Here are six ways to get the very best out of three very busy days in San Francisco.
1. BSR University: Hone Your Skills
Our pre-Conference trainings are back and better than ever. Join us for amazing food and wine during our Marin food and farm tour, refine your presentation skills with a hands-on public-speaking workshop, learn all about the circular economy, and more.
2. BSR Connect Lounge: Unplug, Recharge, and Network
The BSR Connect Lounge will feature comfy seating, yoga breaks, and espresso and wheatgrass shots. Schedule face-to-face meetings attendees, have an impromptu networking moment, or meet with BSR experts at scheduled times.
3. Amazing Receptions: Relish the Fun, Food, and Drink
Join us for our Taste of Napa Valley reception and a San Francisco food truck experience at the Hyatt that will ensure your stay in the Bay Area is as locavore as it gets.
4. Our First-Ever 5K Run: Get Moving with Movecoach
Movecoach, a dynamic digital platform that engages employees to more activity, will lead participants in a short run (or walk) on Wednesday November 4. Don’t forget to pack your running shoes!
5. Food for Thought Dinners: Dine Out in San Francisco
Back for a third year, our popular Food for Thought dinners, sponsored by Campbell Soup Company, combine sustainability conversations and meals at top San Francisco restaurants. Each dinner corresponds to one of our program tracks and will be moderated by a BSR senior leader.
6. Offsite Visits: See San Francisco Innovation in Action
If you’re feeling the need to get out of the venue for a bit, join one of our offsite tours—including a visit to Levi’s Eureka Innovation Lab and a farmer’s market tour at San Francisco’s renowned Ferry Building.
And if you want to simply stay put, our agenda is packed with more than 100 speakers, nearly 50 sessions and events, and five content tracks that cover all facets of sustainable business.
We hope to see you on November 3 at the Hyatt Embarcadero in San Francisco—where you can pick up your badge, take a deep breath, and dig in!
