  • Thank you Mary

  • Thank you..  Referred by Kate Pugh of Columbia U

  • Hi Mary, Glad to be here! Glad to reconnect with Smarter-Companies! Looking forward to the exchange of ideas!

  • Thanks Mary! I appreciate your kind welcoming words. This seems like a fantastic group. I'm excited to explore and learn here. I'm currently moving into new territory as a freelancer and very much a systems guy. If anyone is interested in learning more about this tool for planning / adaptive management of conservation projects, I'd be happy to explain (it's not mine, but I'm a volunteer trainer for the Conservation Coaches Network, which uses it): 

  • Hi Mary

    The investment world is grappling with this concept. There is much resistance and much more confusion. One difficulty is absence of 'standard' framework. It's almost as if the industry wants any resolution to be perfect and yet readily accepts the vast range of outcomes from employing the DCF framework. 

    I believe intangible assets are leading indicators of their tangible counterparts and ultimately the results reported by corporations. At the moment though, methods of 1) identifying relevant intangibles and then 2) using them to forecast risk (around return projections) is little more than embryonic.

    Thanks for your welcome.



  • Context -based sustainability takes into consideration ecological and societal limits to companies and their operations. You can find more here: and here:

    I agree with you about making it work. The longer we take, the less time we will have to fix all the problems we have created!

  • Hallo Mary,

    Thanks for the welcome. I've been following your work for a while now. Nice to see these two papers launched today.

    I'm interested in integrated thinking, context-based sustainability and bringing the humans on board. As a sustainability movement we seem to have forgotten to bring the people on the journey with us.


  • Thank you Mary for your welcoming words. This is very kind of you.

    Looking forward to learn and share my humble thoughts along the way!


  • Thank you, Mary

  • Hello Mary, I hope you are doing well. I did the certification last year in Chile with Arturo. I wrote to you an email talking about a startup i am working right now. I would like to have your comments.

    Best Regards,
