Momentous Momentum Conference

I had a memorable experience a couple of weeks ago in San Francisco at the stimulating Momentum Conference, produced by the Tides Foundation.

Momentum gathered activists, philanthropists, and intelligentsia, drawn primarily by the call to consider strategies for solutions around the most challenging issues of the times, in light of the looming leadership change in the White House. The brainchild of Tides founder and CEO Drummond Pike (also board chair of the Endswell Foundation and a founding board member of Tides Canada Foundation), Momentum was patterned on the renowned TED and Idea City conferences, all with a progressive agenda focus.

Tides Renewal Centre Taking Shape

Renewal is deep in the build out of the interior with Penner and Associates. They are driving us towards the highest level of LEED we can reach for commercial build out of office space. Fitting modern offices into the irregularities and charm of a 19th century space tests our patience and pocketbook.  The charm of the 100+ year old brick, massive windows, central light well, and the 8 or 9  walk in vaults with original steel doors, hold tales we'll have fun for years creating and embellishing.
