Amanda Oborne is Vice President of Food & Farms at Portland, Oregon-based Ecotrust, “a catalyst for radical, practical change.”

Fast Company recently named her one of the most creative people in business.

And me? I could use some help making sense of the world.

I’ve been interviewing people professionally for twenty years. It’s the part of my job I like best. So why not find smart people and ask them to share an insight that experience has given them, something important that I probably wouldn’t know, or think about.

Thoughtful people. All sorts. Like a team of advisors. To help me, and hopefully you, more capably contend with timely, complex issues and ideas.

Amanda immediately came to mind. Since a mutual friend introduced us, I’ve known her to be a sharp thinker, informed and opinionated. I admire the depth of her consideration and her will to make a difference.
