    In The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell describes three kinds of people: Mavens, Connectors, and Salesmen. Coro is a rare embodiment of all three. She is a walking encyclopedia of sustainability knowledge; she knows anyone who knows anything about sustainability and is a proactive hub in their network; and she is a master persuader who helps people see the relevance of innovative sustainability-related strategies to their organization's objectives. Her research is rigorous. Her recommendations can be trusted. She is one of the most credible sustainability champions that I know.
