Hi Bill,
I wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed your lecture at Yestermorrow on July 19th. I had wanted to be stimulated but had no idea how exciting and far reaching your talk would be. Not only did I find out there were people thinking beyond sustainability, but I also found out how important the word "systems" is. I realized today when I turned on my computer how that word is basic to everything connected to computers. I don't know much about that huge field because I haven't found it compatible with who I seem to be, but I guess I am going to have to bite the bullet and try to catch up with the rest of the world in more ways than one. I think I dropped out of the mainstream and am finally ready to jump back in. You pushed me over the brink!

Bill Reed is one of the most experienced and visionary professionals in the field. He has an ability to see and communicate the links in the divide between the complex, progressive goals that we need to target and the practical realities of running a day-to-day business. I have seen no equal to him in being able to skillfully facilitate a very diverse (and often contentious) project team through a set of complex project goals.
