A writer on climate change and sustainability, Paul Gilding is a leading social entrepreneur and advisor to many Fortune 100 companies. The former global head of Greenpeace International strongly advocates for a balanced use of Earth's resources.

Gilding will discuss his new book, The Great Disruption. He argues that a coming global and economic crisis can pave the way for enormous positive change with business opportunities and risks, at a scale comparable to the industrial revolution.
