Brad Zarnett brings a successful track record as a sustainability consultant, entrepreneur and the founder of the world’s largest sustainability speaker series, TSSS. The explosive success of TSSS, launched in 2007, inspired and connected thousands from around the world. While the project was never intended as a business platform and was thus never capitalized for global growth, it was built to inspire and connect in one city/country and it succeeded beyond expectations. Building on that success, Brad is involved in several ventures aimed at shedding light on what's wrong with the current system of commerce which is at the root of today's poly-crisis, and working to help address it.
