Official Feedback from In-Person & Virtual Events

Feedback from In-Person Events:

"Isha has been a thought partner, advisor, and co-visionary as we set out to transform the way the world eats. What I admire most about Isha is her tactful boldness. She is not afraid to shake things up. To turn things on their head. To question convention. And she does so with poise, honesty, and humility. A true and gifted visionary. I am delighted to be her ally in this movement." - Arturo, CEO, The EVERY Company
