Conner Tidd is a multi- faceted personality and as a 30 under 30 sustainability leader is a torch-bearer of the conservation movement sweeping the world. Here's a little more about Conner Tidd in his own words:
I’ve led an exciting life: TV chef, Chinese game show participant, speaking at the United Nations, living around the world from Geneva to Toronto, and as an entrepreneur. But what I have enjoyed most has been identifying opportunities and creating the necessary change, products, and strategies to capture those opportunities. Throughout my career I have been fortunate to have been recognized for my work creating change as a Clean50 emerging leader and a top 30 under 30 sustainability and human rights leader.
I love busting through problems, finding innovative solutions, developing a strategy to get it done, aligning a team, and executing on that plan. There is something so intrinsically satisfying of being able to sit back at the end of the day and say, “wow, look at what we created”.
It is a shame that so many people and businesses never get the chance to experience that feeling of being the leader of the pack, the ones creating change instead of just adjusting to it, creating true innovation. I have made it my mission to make sure everyone I work with gets to experience this feeling of leading change, both for themselves and for the bottom line.
