Branton Strategies helps local governments, community development corporations and other non-profit organizations develop successful strategies for combatting blight and returning vacant, abandoned and tax-delinquent properties to productive use. Winnie Branton is the Principal of Branton Strategies LLC and serves as an independent consultant to the Housing Alliance of Pennsylvania. She wrote The Pennsylvania Land Bank Resource Guide, a comprehensive guide for local and county governments to assess whether a land bank is right for their community and, if so, how to proceed with planning, funding, organizing, and operating a land bank. The Guide was published by the Housing Alliance in May 2016. Prior to establishing Branton Strategies in 2014, Winnie practiced environmental and land use law in the public and private sectors for more than 15 years, advising clients on regulatory compliance, permitting, land development, remediation, community relations, and government affairs.

Catch the Green Wave! Prepare your business to prosper in the 21st Century Green Economy. Update your mindset to map onto the changing business landscape. Discover opportunities in current business trends. Be inspired by innovative green solutions and entrepreneurs. Trudy Heller, Ph.D. (Wharton ’93) has opened the eyes of hundreds of professionals to the business opportunity in the green economy over the past two decades. I inspire, motivate, and prepare audiences to prosper in the new green economy. My message is a positive one about exciting innovations accelerating the green economy and changing the landscape for all businesses. I use lots of examples of businesses and entrepreneurs who are creating disruptive, mind-blowing, green solutions. Audiences and participants will be: • Motivated, inspired and excited about business opportunity in the new green economy. Are you wary and weary of doom and gloom reports of environmental crises? Are you an environmentalist at heart, but don’t see the connection to business? Are you an environmental professional, frustrated by clients who undertake a single project to correct an environmental impact, then end their involvement rather than continuing on a sustainability journey? • Armed with communication strategies for engaging others. Do you suspect what social science research confirms — that rational arguments alone for sustainability are not persuasive? What does work? • Fortified with a mindset for keeping up with the fast-breaking developments in the green economy. Are you confused by the media blitz on going green? Not sure what’s hype and what’s real?
