Kevin Winston, global environmental affairs leader for Amazon, answered questions during lunch Monday. No one needed to be convinced that Amazon is big and influential, but his comments revealed just how much Amazon influences everything from retail strategy to sustainability.
Wednesday’s keynote speaker also hails from an influential organization, also with roots in the tech industry – although the Northwest tech industry.
Steve Moore, executive director of the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust, spoke at lunch Tuesday. While the Murdock Trust is not as large or well known as Amazon, it too has the ability to influence the actions of others.
