Speaker Series


The SMART Speaker Series in association with SMART Community Exchange (SCE) and Eco Commerce Exchange (ECE) is now in production. From live events and select local venues, to an on-line presence that enables the worlds of social media and live performance to seamlessly meet, the ECE experience is about collaborative learning, discovering new business opportunities and unique contacts.The ECE is always open and just waiting to be discovered. 



The Speakers have at least one thing in common - they share insight, provoke thought and stimulate conversation about compelling and timely issues, stories and events. By offering entertaining educational opportunities that are unique and unavailable elsewhere, ECE continues to attract expert Speakers from around the world. 

The first Speaker Series in 2013 featured a number of highly regarded experts in the field of Eco Commerce. The lecture program has since expanded to include internationally renowned business executives, investors, entrepreneurs, policy makers, philanthropists, scientists, authors, media experts and other luminaries.

The Eco Commerce Exchange (ECE) has become a well-established and highly regarded highlight of the global commerce, and an integral part of the international business community. 

For topic suggestions, speaker engagements, and sponsorships:

International Audience

The ECE works closely with organizations around the planet to identify Speakers who have particular appeal for ECE's fast growing international audience of over 2 million business executives, values-based investors and donors, entrepreneurs, and policy leaders. 

Public Service 

The Speaker Series also addresses an important role of ECE's global mission - public service in the communities - by dedicating speakers to address education and other societal issues and concerns.

All production expenses for the Speaker Series are covered by sponsorships. NO state funds, research foundation funds, donations or general gifts are used to fund or support the Speakers or programs.

This speaker series is about bringing best practices to market. ECE brings together individuals and organizations in a way that does not require a large investment of funds and time. By pooling our contacts and resources, we can find new opportunities to bring innovations to market in a quick and efficient manner. Together, we can overcome market penetration challenges and remove barriers accelerating access to markets, funding and government approval process.

This Speaker Series will discuss the following: 

We are committed to improving human and ecological health, and strengthening the scientific and public dialogue on the impact of environmental factors on human health and catalyzing initiatives to address these concerns. 

We work with individuals and organizations including scientists, health professionals, health-affected groups, nongovernmental organizations and other concerned citizens. 

Medical Waste

Medical waste poses a significant risk to the environment for two main reasons: first, the volume in which it is produced; and secondly, due to the environmental impacts associated with waste incineration - currently the most prevalent method for dealing with this type of ‘hazardous’ waste. For these reasons, medical equipment is being subjected to increasing scrutiny from both healthcare trusts - who must finance the increasing costs of waste management and environmental legislators.

However, there is often scope for reducing recycling costs if the product is designed with the recycling process in mind. Academic and industrial research has been undertaken to develop product design approaches to ensure that recycling is completed with minimal time and effort and that maximum value can be obtained for the materials and components extracted from the product.

We encourage manufacturers to consider design for recycling during the development of their products and adoption of new standards for minimum energy efficiency and other environmental considerations.
