Ecocity World Summit

Video of Mr. Steve Pinetti, Senior VP of Sales & Marketing
Kimpton Hotel & Restaurant Group

A year old, but a VERY interesting find. Mr. Pinetti was a guest speaker at the Ecocity World Summit 2008. He spoke about the Kimpton traditions, current initiatives, and future strategies to promote eco-friendly boutique lodging. This year, the Ecocity World Summit 2009 was held in Istanbul, Turkey from December 13-15th. So sorry my invite was lost in the mail!

ROW for CLEAN Water!

Pictured above is Katie Spotz. She will ring in the New Year with a little boat trip across the Atlantic Ocean to raise money for a clean water campaign. Spotz will disembark from Africa sometime as soon as next week. She is very close to exceeding her fundraising goal of $40,000. Learn more about her cause at her website. You can also keep up with her during the journey by following her blog and tweets. From one rower to another, pull hard Katie!
