    discussion on e-Giving. Discover one of the many alternative uses of the
    Internet as e-Commerce gives way to e-Giving. The panel will explore the
    different business models deployed to enable corporate and individual users
    to make charitable contributions online. We will examine the interesting
    technical aspects of the collaboration among non-profit charitable
    organizations, corporate intranet sites and commercial retail sites. Come
    and learn how users can shop wisely on the net and make year-end,
    tax-deductible charitable contributions at the same time !

    John Truscott grew up in England and studied engineering science at
    University of Warwick. After graduating, he saw the goal of connecting
    companies with their consumers as a fascinating challenge and pursued a
    career in marketing. He spent 10 years working in advertising agencies in
    London, including three years at the highly acclaimed Saatchi & Saatchi. He
    then moved to Los Angeles to begin a 10-year stint with Chiat/Day
    Advertising. His expertise evolved from developing advertising messages to
    creating corporate turnaround campaigns for companies such as Taco Bell and
    Jack In The Box. He joined Charitableway to help build a brand from scratch
    and to give back to the community. Johns favorite nonprofit organizations
    include the Round House Aquarium at the pier in Manhattan Beach, Calif.,
    where his two young daughters first came nose to nose with a live fish, and
    his local NPR station, which, after his family, is his closest companion
    outside of work.
