Biography

About Shel Horowitz:
Certified Speaker, Best-Selling/Multiple Award-Winning Author, 
Profitability and Marketing Strategist, Catalyst for Change

Whether it was a one-toddler action against cigarettes at the age of three—or the idea he's been promoting for more than 30 years that green, ethical businesses can be more profitable—Shel Horowitz has been ahead of the curve…a thought-leader and promoter of other visionaries who look at how to move the entire planet forward. Now his challenge to the business world goes far beyond going green…to creating the world we all want to live in, where sufficiency has replaced hunger and poverty…peace has replaced war and violence…and the planet is in balance, with a strong long-term future.

A TEDx Talker and accomplished international speaker, Shel has spoken on stages from Davos, Switzerland and Istanbul, Turkey to Honolulu and Kauai, Hawaii. He has done mainstage, side-stage, breakout, and panel presentations for numerous business, academic, and environmental organizations, including ForumDavos (Switzerland), Bosphorus Conferences (Turkey), Green America/Global Exchange Green Festival, GoGreenExpo, SolarFest, PRSA (Public Relations Society of America) International Conference, ASJA (American Society of Journalists and Authors) National Conference, Book Expo America, American Marketing Association/CT, ABC (Association for Business Communication) International Conference, Noteworthy USA, Sustainable Foods Summit, Gulf Coast Green, Scaling Change, Shift Network's Spring of Sustainability, Bioneers-By-the-Bay/Connecting for Change, Smith College, University of Vermont, and many others.

“It was a delight to have Shel Horowitz present at the Sustainable Foods Summit. Not only did he do a fabulous presentation on green marketing, but he also stepped in on less than two weeks notice to do the opening second-day keynote–a well-delivered inspirational message tracking food sustainability through the ages and into the future. Shel also understands how to work with meeting planners, and in both of his talks, stayed enthusiastic, interacted well with the audience, and kept to his allotted time.”

Some of his business “heresies”:

  • “Impossible” is an arbitrary limitation that we can overcome; with the right mindset, we can turn business into a powerful, profit-making force for good
  • Real solutions to hunger, poverty, war, and climate change are out there, waiting to be harvested by for-profit businesses; we already know how to do this
  • Ordinary people can change the world. Rosa Parks was a seamstress. Lech Walesa was a shipyard electrician. Many other examples.
  • Deep sustainability can cost less than small improvements
  • Green, ethical, socially conscious businesses can cost less to operate, command higher prices, and develop more loyal customers
  • Instead of a cost, marketing can even be a direct source of revenue
  • Customers and even competitors can be your best marketers


His presentation style:

  • Dynamic—wakes up sleepy audiences
  • Interactive—lots of audience participation
  • Thought-provoking—bringing startling new concepts in accessible ways
  • Visually bold—excitement in the slides!
  • Results-oriented—practical steps everyone in the audience can take to go green, market green, and create profitable business models to solve the world’s biggest problems
     

His accomplishments in the world:

  • Organizing a movement of thousands of people that saved a threatened mountain in just 13 months—while the "experts" said there was nothing they could do to stop the development (Shel expected to win all along, but thought it would take five years)
  • Launching the Business Ethics Pledge and getting signatures from more than 30 countries (six continents) in the first year—and perhaps helping to shift the business culture worldwide
  • Initiating the first nonsmokers' rights regulations in a restaurant town—and watching the number of restaurants grow 40 percent afterward
  • Opening up the possibility of creating profitable products and servces that directly address issues like hunger, poverty, war, and catastrophic climate change—showing thousands of people that they can personally make a difference


Personal achievements:

  • International speaker certified by the International Platform Association
  • Six of his ten books have won awards and/or been republished in other countries (Italy, Turkey, South Korea, Japan, Mexico, India)
  • His eighth book, Guerrilla Marketing Goes Green (co-authored with Jay Conrad Levinson, founder of the Guerrilla Marketing empire), was on at least one Amazon.com category best-seller list at least 34 different months; his tenth book, Guerrilla Marketing to Heal the World (also co-authored with Levinson, endorsed by Seth Godin, Jack Canfield, and others, and with four guest essayists including Cynthia Kersey (Unstoppable) and Frances Moore Lappé (Diet for a Small Planet), debuted on the bestseller list in two categories
  • Inducted into the National Environmental Hall of Fame
  • First business in the world to achieve Green America's Gold-level green business certification
  • Raising two entrepreneurial/activist children
  • Compiling 111 easy, free/inexpensive ways for consumers to go green in their own lives
  • Retrofitting his 1743 farmhouse with solar (Shel thinks he might live in the oldest solar home in the US)
