    Momentum Bay's founder Mark Robinson also moderated the panel. Robinson's presentation:

    • Helped new & veteran leaders get up to speed & stay ahead of the hottest color trend in Texas' design, construction & development: GREEN.
    • Made it easy, fun, interactive, practical, informal & fast-paced to go green profitably
    • Dispelled myths, allayed fears & adjusted stereotypes with practical, current & relevant information about green business & green real estate
    • Equipped attendees to sell corporate sustainability at the strategic, executive-level
    • Encouraged participants to discover their own green story & challenged them to change some bad habits so they could earn the right to be heard with clients & coworkers
    • Equipped guests to be transformed into consultative salespersons – who sell, teach & integrate their own ‘green’ stories, &
    • Asked students to help us create a healthy, sustainable nation.

    Robinson also walked through a case study about one of the firm's clients, Green Bank, showing how the bank is earning the right to be heard by retail customers & commercial clients by transforming the bank's products, processes, properties & people. Even the bank's CEO & President traded in his SUV for a Toyota Prius, like two of Momentum Bay's other clients' executives have done.

    After the presentation, Robinson gave every attendee a $1 tool that has helped his household save $3,000 on utilities over a 5-year period.
