Speed networking

In addition to our open networking breaks across the two days, the event will feature a dedicated speed networking lounge, allowing attendees to meet with peers for 3-minute conversations to share key challenges and opportunities, exchange details and – hopefully – form long-term collaborations.

Mess-up night

(Chatham House Rules apply) 

“I’ve not failed, I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” – Thomas Edison.  

Following edie’s Birthday Drinks, head over to the Engage Lounge for an informal gathering of business leaders to discuss some of the times that things didn’t quite go to plan… This intimate and candid session will see speakers abandon all pretences and share the good, the bad and the ugly behind corporate sustainability – and the lessons learned along the way. Perfectionists not invited.
