double thanks guys, thanks to everyone who came last night including a very creditable crew of fellow bloggers, thanks to all the linkers (and for those reading today - yes there are some books left within the 50 and the offer does still stand!!!) :J

happy birthday and congrats on the book, john!

I already ordered a copy from Amazon.co.uk. But we can't get too much of a good thing and I do have an editor or two at our Des Moines office who are wholly dedicated to the subject.

Happy Birthday. Congratulations on the new book. If it's as useful as your three earlier titles, you'll be well on your way to fueling the revolution.

Happy birthday and congratulations on the launch!

David MacGregor said...

I am looking forward to reading the book. Like others I have found your others very provocative and useful.
I've posted about it on my blog. Even if I am within the 50 please don't send a copy - it would be counter-intuitive (book miles and all that). I'll get a copy from Wiley Australasia for review in Idealog magazine. It's an important topic and I am glad you seem intent on normalising the discussion.

done. congrats John! looking forward to reading it

Hi John,

Thanks for your talk just now at MindShare, it was very interesting to see where you think Green marketing is heading in the future.

I was just wondering whether you had any view oh how best we can encourage other countries to adopt similar behaviour to the behaviour that we seem to be adopting here in Britain?

I am talking here mainly about what seems to be the elephant in the corner of the room, the newly emerging/polluting countries like China and India. As consumers in the west we've had the luxury of consuming non green goods for years. It seems to me that it is only within the last 10-15 years that our consience has started to get the better of us. What is your view on how to get consumers in countries like China to make purchasing decisions like this and who are we to tell them that they should do?

I'm not sure if you have seen this site - http://www.chinadialogue.net/

I think it addresses the most pressing issue of being green in a great way.

Thanks again,

David.

I am a retired marketer: I've spent 40 years working for IT multinationals in various marketing roles, including VP Marketing, Europe.
I've seen the green conscience emerging (timidly) and growing.
My comment is that we have a long way to go! Consider this: the so called "Environmental Manager" more often than not is somebody who comes from Customer Service (a necessary evil...) never from marketing. In my last (Japanese) company, a first runner on CFC elimination from manufacturing, there is still a chasm between Corporate (meaning well) and Marketing (using "green" as just one of the benefits).
My thought: there is a long way to go! Starting from the education of marketing directors and product managers.
A book like yours (that I've received two days ago from amazon.co.uk) and your site can help avoiding that one marketer has to reach his sixties before realizing that sustainable marketing (OK, I agree with you, let's call it "green") is not a remote option or a new fade, but indeed a way to lead a revolution in people lifestyles.
Thanks (and belated happy birthday!)
P.S English is not my native language, so excuse my grammar and/or choice of words.

Hi John

Just wanted to say that we're also looking forward to reading the book and have added a link to our own blogroll on www.needanewboiler.com - the new blog for Glow-worm boilers.

Good luck!

Congratulations, John and buon compleanno. I saw the links off David MacGregor's and Jon Howard's blogs ;-) Given your focus, you might consider checking out LighterFootstep.com and ecoTumble.com.

Chris Baskind said...

Consider yourself linked. Good luck with the book!
