Our guest speaker will be Inge Relph, Co-Founder and Executive Director of GlobalChoices and our topic will be We Can't Plant Ice - Can ESG save the planet?

To most of us environmental challenges are daunting relative to our ability to make a difference but if we each do "something", the outcome will be a journey of improvement.

Most organisations,  public or private are scrambling to come to grips with the rapidly changing world of Environmental, Social and Governance related regulation and global stakeholder expectations.  Join Inge Relph, co-Founder and Executive Director of GlobalChoices and Sharon Constancon CEO of Genius Boards, as they  explore the limits of ESG and challenge us to raise our sights beyond compliance and to rethink our roles as Global Citizens.
