"High powered networking, problem solving - not your usual conference."
"A collection of doers, funders and thinkers brought together to have real talks about how to do more and how to do things better. All done in a place and with a spirit that invites relaxation and connection."
"I've been a delegate at the Clinton Global Initiative, Skoll World Forum, and Global Philanthropy Forum. Over time, I have become increasingly critical about the quality of content and number of backroom deals. Opportunity Collaboration is the very BEST conference I have ever attended. Today, I no longer attend the high profile conferences. Opportunity Collaboration is the sole focus of my ongoing social education."
"The best conference on the circuit. Participant-led content raises the level of accountability for leader and listener."
"I have been extremely fortunate to be a delegate at many of the high profile, social enterprise conferences over the years, including the Clinton Global Initiative, Skoll World Forum, Global Philanthropy Forum, et al. Over time, I have become increasingly critical about the quality of the content and the number of backroom deals that keep industry leaders out of many of the mainstream discussions. Two years ago, I was invited to the Opportunity Collaboration. As fate would have it, the Opportunity Collaboration turned out to be the very BEST conference I had ever attended. Today, I no longer attend the high profile conferences. Opportunity Collaboration is the sole focus of my ongoing social education."
– Darlene Daggett, retired CEO of QVC
"Opportunity Collaboration brings together a diverse and insightful group of dedicated social innovators. It allowed me to interact with like-minded actors and gain from the plethora of voices. I was definitely inspired by my various encounters during the course of the convening. Thank you for this wonderful effort!"
– Deepali Khanna, Director of Youth Learning, The MasterCard Foundation
"At Bamboo Finance, we are careful with our travel budget and this event was well worth the investment of time and money. The Opportunity Collaboration sparked an immediate $1 million investment in our Mexican education portfolio company, FINAE. This is a very special event. It successfully created a relaxing and reflective environment for fueling my personal inspiration, developing my knowledge of new ideas in the field of poverty alleviation, supporting our private equity fund's fundraising goals, providing opportunities for us to invest in social ventures...and I even found a dance buddy! Bamboo Finance looks forward to being there in 2011 ...the best conference I have ever attended."
