SEPTEMBER 25 – 27, 2017
2nd Annual Regenerative Business Summit
Seattle, WA

“I’ve been to quite a few conferences around change communities, and I found the Regenerative Business Summit to be pretty unique. We didn’t talk about how we can fix things and how the world is broken, we talked about how we can actually create something new. It got me into a space of possibility, and what could be if we let it grow.”

– Peter Schulte, Founder & Editor, Kindling Listen to Audio

“Oh my god, the kind of people were just something you cannot find anywhere. They were people completely committed. They were people wanting to go deeper. The level of conversation—it was just mind-blowing. It really felt like a strong community.”

– Alicia Silva, Founder & CEO, Revitalization Architects, Mexico City                                                Listen to Audio

“One thing I haven’t experienced other places is: cultivating thinking partners. People with a common language and a common framework, invited to engage on a level playing field. Here, everything was welcome. We’re interested in the whole ecosystem, how the ecosystem is moving forward, and what role we’re all playing in that.”

– Cindy Brooks, Co-founder, The Alinker          Listen to Audio

“Carol Sanford Institute’s approach (the regenerative business education) continues to be an amazing source of inspiration and one of the foundational philosophies of Google Food.”

Michiel Bakker, Director, Google Food.

“The regenerative business approach and insights ...take us behind the scenes at companies that have transformed how they think about themselves and the world – and in the process generate not only sustainable prosperity, but levels of meaning and commitment that most firms only dream of....”

Rebecca Henderson, Senator John Heinz Professor of Environmental Management, Harvard Business School.

“Carol Sanford Institute has been developing corporate consciousness…the idea is inherently tough-minded: break ingrained habits of thought, kick over stale ideas, and avoid the easy path of simply repeating past successes...”

Jeffrey Hollender, Founder, CEO of Seventh Generation (in Harvard Business Review • March 2010).

“...The Carol Sanford Institute’s ability to build capability regarding ideas about strategic thinking, levels of differentiation and “learning while doing” were very unique...[It helped me rethink our relationship to competition and what we needed to do in order to make ourselves more “non-displaceable” in our markets. The regenerative business approach is much more holistic than anything I have worked with.”

Brad Redderson, Senior Vice President Visual Systems, Silicon Graphics (SGI)

“Carol Sanford Institute, a most insightful and effective organization, ... helped us made a positive difference to our business way of work. Their work with DuPont of Canada... regenerative ways of working in a business has yielded substantial business advantages.”

Bill White, Senior President, DuPont of Canada


“...Individuals and organizations exceed all expectations for performance as a result of Carol Sanford Institute’s work. ...I have seen the confidence that comes from these successes that infuse people’s lives and change them positively and permanently...[They] can explain why and how change and growth work rather than simply initiating a program; they transfer the capability to continue the improvements long after they are gone.”

Will Lynn, Clorox Corporation, Group Vice President

“I am consistently impressed by the foresight of Carol Sanford Institute. Concepts and approaches are introduced by them, which are then later brought forward in leading books and articles. At a recent conference on innovative thinking....ideas were presented which I experienced a number of years earlier during interaction with Carol Sanford Institute.”

John Hanby, VP of Research and Development, Potlatch.


 “Carol Sanford Institute created a climate of trust with a multi-racial workforce and management during a historic period, (before and after the first free elections in the republic of south Africa )... I am persuaded that Carol Sanford Institute’s approach creates a long lasting business advantage, whilst developing people and the business.”

Stelios Tsezos, GM for Oral Care Europe , Colgate-Palmolive.

 “Carol Sanford Institute offers one of the wisest and most compassionate teachings and approaches to thinking on the planet! ... They have the gift of teaching complex and profound concepts and higher order thinking that has contributed to the quality of my thinking…thus the quality of my life and business.”

Debra Neill, Ceo, Neill Corporation, Largest distributor Of Aveda Products, Business Educator To Aveda Salons.


“Carol Sanford Institute’s regenerative way of working with Seventh Generation opened a door to the whole new level of engaging with and practicing corporate responsibility, in everything we do— from how we organize the company, to strategic thinking, working with stakeholders, product development and marketing. We have dramatically improved our strategic, leadership, and organizational capabilities...”

Jeffrey Hollender, CEO, Founder Of Seventh Generation.

 “This way of thinking about running a business, (the regenerative business), is a critical source of new understanding for a re-imagined future. Rarely a day goes by that I do not call on this way of thinking and looking at the world...”

Chad Holliday, Chairman And Ceo, E. I. Dupont Corporation.

 “Carol is one of those very rare individuals whom you meet that has the ability and wisdom to radically alter the way you think about yourself and the world. ... Carol has the unique gift of getting through to people and helping them realize the potential of not just themselves, but of our world. ... They deliver transformation at scale.

Jason Twill, Head of Development, Lend Lease.
