One of the coolest features of modern life is the ability — in principle — to reach out and talk with anyone who inspires you. With the uncertainty brought on by the election, we are all looking both for great ideas and to strengthen our networks. I will be talking more about power networking and other career advising strategies in a free, one-hour webinar on How to Get A Job in Sustainability on February 16, 2017, at 6pm Eastern. But in the meantime, here is a special opportunity for MOTHER EARTH NEWS readers to help you talk to your heroes.

Sustainable Business Fridays

Sustainable Business Fridays is a podcast run by students in Bard’s MBA in Sustainability. Over the last four years, our students have hosted dozens of in-depth conversations with pioneers in corporate sustainability, social entrepreneurship and creative not-for-profit solutions.

To recruit interview guests, we ask the students to reach out to the person in the world doing the work they most admire, and ask them to come on the show. The students not only have a great conversation, they also have the chance to begin building their “power network”, starting with their top hero.

Coming up this spring are podcasts featuring, among others, Alan Savory (Holistic Management); Fereshteh Forough (Code to Inspire); Karen Overton (Recycle A Bicycle); and John Meyerson (Years of Living Dangerously).

Submit Your Dream Interview Ideas!

So here’s an offer to MOTHER EARTH NEWS readers: Submit your interview ideas to us here, and we will choose at random, one guest host for our Sustainable Business Friday podcast show this spring. We need your entries by midnight on February 15, 2017.
