DAN DELIVERED HIS UNCHARITABLE TALK TO AN AUDIENCE OF 150. 

________________________________________________________________________________________________________

"Dan was a tremendous asset to our Philanthropy Forum – He challenged our clients to think differently, reevaluate how they have been giving, and motivate them to better support the organizations they are passionate about. In response to Dan's point that donors focus too much on overhead ratios, an attendee exclaimed 'I'm that guy!' This guest and many more will be forever changed by Dan's insights." - Bill Sutton, Head of Client Philanthropy Services, UBS Wealth Management Americas

This was the first UBS Philanthropy Forum held in the United States. I had the privilege of speaking at their European Forum in St. Moritz last December. UBS gathers ultra-high net worth clients to advance their learning about philanthropy. I applaud them. As an advocate for changing the way people think about giving, it is an incredible opportunity to change the way people of tremendous influence think about it. This particular conference was held at the spectacular Blue Hill at Stone Barns. The meals were prepared by Dan Barber and his staff. Dan is a huge advocate of food democracy, and the dining experience actually taught us all a great deal about a different, more equitable, and indescribably delicious way of farming and eating.
