About our Speaker
"Real prosperity is about creating a new economic system that is driven by different ideals, not simply greening our existing economy. Real prosperity is an economic system that regenerates the environment, builds social capital, and enhancing the arts and culture. Real prosperity values beauty, happiness, respect and the human experience."
Toby was born and raised in the rainforests of Vancouver, BC. He is Board Chair & President of BALLE - bealocalist.org, (where this bio is sourced). Toby also serves as the Chair of the Strathcona BIA, which includes Groundswell.
Toby believes that understanding sustainability is the single greatest investment that a business can make towards its future success and he volunteers 20 percent of his time to building a resilient community in one of Canada’s most challenging neighbourhoods. Toby is fascinated by the intersection of business, the arts, and the environment, and is inspired by the idea of communities and ecosystems.
