Graham was also instrumental in helping keep KLD abreast of trends and movements in the SRI industry. Graham proved that he can keep up with the pace of business. He's willing to abandon ideas, even his own, if they're not good for the company - a critical skill as an entrepreneur or businessman in a relatively nascent industry. He's a talented, giving colleague with a positive attitude, deep network of professionals and friends in the industry, and admirable ability to juggle a million competing priorities while inspiring and motivating his team.”- Strategic Operations Manager, global sports brand, Oregon, USA

“Graham taught my Investment Strategies for Sustainability class in December 2007. This 3 day seminar class was well structured and I enjoyed it a lot. It was a nice balance of lecture, real-life business cases and interactive presentations created by students. Graham is a demanding teacher. The extensive amount of reading required for the class is a necessary basis for thinking, discussion and debate in class and is well completed by practical assignments (e.g. company selection for a SRI fund) As a French student with a previous experience in SRI, I learned a lot about the current state and challenges of SRI in North America. Moreover, Graham managed to create a great atmosphere among the students, which also demonstrates his great teaching skills.”  -  MBA candidate, top ten B-school, USA

"Congratulations!! Great talk! I love TED! Yes I wish there were more money people with consciences, you must be a minority! I really respect your matter of fact, and truly genuine approach. If I had some money, I would let you invest it for me!!!  Funny you should bring up the marshmallow test too! My research is all about self-regulation. We know we should, but we are not explicitly teaching self-regulation skills in our kids, and it may not (or apparently not at all  in some cases!) necessarily come naturally to everyone! Congratulations again!! Good job!!" - Ph.D student, Hong Kong, Hong Kong.
