Laura Turner Seydel:
As one of the most influential women in the environmental movement today, Laura developed her passion for protecting the environment at an early age. As daughter of CNN founder and philanthropist Ted Turner, she saw firsthand how ecologically devastated many areas of the world are. Her many leadership responsibilities include: Chairman of the Captain Planet Foundation, Co-founder of Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper, Co-founder of Mothers & Others for Clean Air, Trustee of the Turner Foundation.
A self-proclaimed environmentalist in training, Ira is President of Captain Planet Foundation and leads the Foundation’s efforts to support hands-on, environmental projects for youth by building relationships within the environmental, educational and business communities as well as overseeing the Foundation’s grant portfolio. A sought after keynote speaker, Blumenthal has also been a visiting instructor at The University of Notre Dame, Michigan State University and currently serves as inaugural Executive-In-Residence at Georgia State University’s School of Hospitality. Additionally, he is the author of the popular marketing book, Ready, Blame, Fire! and is the co-author (with Coca-Cola executive Jerry Wilson) of Managing Brand You, a best seller in the works.
