David developed the financial strategies that define how the restaurant, food purveyors and public interrelate. David's role in forming the Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture (founded in 2001) included design and management of the operating structure and all related capital expenses. This unique not-for-profit operation works in association with the Barbers' second Blue Hill restaurant located on the grounds of Stone Barns Center.David serves on the Board of Directors of Stone Barns Center and theJacob Burns Film Center in Pleasantville, New York, and as a Trustee of Connecticut College. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
