"I see in Brian a powerful warrior, philosopher, poet."

"You held him up when I was at his lowest allowing me to finish. I remember every moment. Thank you......You were so important to Marshall's success. Truly, at so many of my lowest points, you - and only you - were the one that he wanted and needed to be out there beside him on the road. Mile after mile. We remember. And appreciate all that you did, because of who you are."

"When it comes to each of your stated desires – passion, resilience, resource magnetism, and leadership – I can say without reservation that Brian Weinberg has my highest and most unreserved recommendation. I would trust him with my money, my ambition, and my reputation. He delivers. He is the real deal. You will not find someone more qualified."
- Sean Foote, Venture Capitalist (Co-founder Toniic, Village Capital; Managing Director Labrador Ventures, Faculty UC Berkeley in Impact Investing/ Venture Capital)
"What is most remarkable about Brian is that he is so humble about his many achievements. Because I mostly worked with him on The Chiapas Project, it wasn’t until I reviewed his resume that I learned that he has a 4.0 GPA in a double major while still participating in multiple campus activities and leading a major initiative leading business leaders in Dallas. He is well-organized, polished, strategic in the best sense of the word, and capable of getting any job done. I support him without reservation."
- Dr. Gretchen Bataille, Former President University of North Texas
After being nominated for the Charles Bronfman Prize, I got these two jewels which I thought was worth sharing !
"Brian is a true mensch with the deepest integrity and endless curiosity. His courage to take risks and explore how to best support humanity have led him on a journey of innovative knowledge and skill-building at the intersection of economic development, social equity, and ecological health. The longer I have known Brian, the more I have seen how deeply he embodies the values he brings to his work. His personality and way of living strike a chord in my heart because they are so familiar to me. His character reminds me of my late father, Jerry Zucker (who passed in 2008), an inventor, entrepreneur, leader, and philanthropist who lived the values of “Tikkun Olam” each day of his life in a way that was cellular in nature. Brian is like this—his value of “Tikkun Olam” is cellular in nature. The way humanity, integrity, curiosity, and commitment meet in Brian is so powerful that it moves me to tears. So often, as young leaders work to innovate, they forget about the wisdom of the past and reinvent the wheel. Brian works with intergenerational partners, integrating their wisdom, as they build collaborative movements--across organizations and governments--to bring communities to their full potential. Brian is courageous in his emotional, cognitive, physical, and spiritual inquiry. He is always growing and working on the harmonies of every part of himself. This is how he embodies his culture of holistic, regenerative leadership."
- Andrea Lee Zucker, many hats Artist, Coach, Entrepreneur, Board Member, Impact Investor
"I'm still trying to figure this out but at this point I'm convinced that Brian was born brilliant with an insatiable quest for knowledge and over time he developed the capacity for systems thinking and innovation. His quest for knowledge led to global travels, where he repeatedly observed abject poverty, which stimulated his passion to understand how this has come to be and responsibility to do something about it. This temperament has never waivered as a driving force. I have had the great pleasure of working with some of the best and brightest people on the planet on a number of projects from global housing solutions with Buckminster Fuller, to the Greening of the White House with President Clinton, to new approaches for housing research scientists and their work in Antarctica with NSF, to new concepts for Habitat International with President Carter and Mikhail Gorbachev; Brian is much younger than most of my teammates but has more knowledge, breadth, depth and potential than most of my colleagues on those projects. He is willing to leave dream jobs and put everything at risk to address the most critical problems challenging the future of human life on our planet. He inspires me, and is one of the reasons I am optimistic about the future."
