Launched in 2006, Sustainable Brands has become a global learning, collaboration, and commerce community of forward-thinking sustainability, business and brand strategy, and innovation professionals who are leading the way to a better future. We recognize that today, brands have a unique role to play in focusing corporate energy to positively influence brand culture and seek to serve as a bridge to better brands that serve to drive a sustainable economy. The best way to get there is to embed environmental and social innovation into the DNA of business so that it becomes a core driver of the bottom line and brand value. We are business first, and attract many high-ranking professionals to our conferences because of the cutting-edge thought leadership they evoke.
About the Position:
Sustainable Brands '13 is the 7th annual conference where we bring together business executives from all over the world for four amazingly packed days of plenaries, breakouts, networking events, an expo with over 100 exhibitors, an innovation open, and so much more. You'll be working directly with the Operations team, who is responsible for everything from the coordination of exhibitors at the expo, fulfillment of sponsor agreements, coordinating catering, coordinating with the hotel to plan the networking events, work with AV teams to coordinate slides and videos for each presentation, oversee registration on-site and as well as volunteer team, putting on awesomely fun evening events, keeping our Sustainability Team focused, and making sure the event is a roaring success down to every last detail. This is an unpaid internship, but the position includes travel & expenses to San Diego for the conference from June 3 – 6, so please keep in mind; we are always looking for qualified individuals to join our team, so the potential for future employment is there for the right candidate and this position is an incredible networking none-the-less.
You are passionate about sustainability playing a role in the business space. You are detail-oriented, great at organizing and planning, and can easily multi-task without getting too overwhelmed. You are eager and willing to learn and above all can do so in a fast-paced work environment. You are an effective and professional communicator. You are good at working in a team, but can be responsible for your own tasks and can take initiative when necessary. You are motivated and self-disciplined and can see a project through from start to finish without a lot of hand-holding. Multi-media skills such as audio/video editing or graphic design skills would be a great bonus. And most importantly, you are willing and able to go above and beyond all the while having a fun-loving attitude!
