After a good turnout and some interesting facts and discussion at the last Green Drinks Leeds, our next speaker is another regular, Elizabeth Edgington.

Elizabeth has been the Environmental Campaign Manager for Business in the Community Yorkshire and Humber for seven years, and has worked with hundreds of organisations to engage them in more sustainable business practices.

Her talk will cover the main themes in greening business over that period, and the big issues, mistakes and successes she has seen. She will share her tips  in how to influence and campaign for the change you want in your organisation and maybe further afield.

Capturing the interest of senior business leaders requires creativity and tenacity, find out about the proven techniques tested by Cranfield University that BITC been using and how you can apply them to get leadership on board.

Once on board, businesses make decisions about sustainability in a variety of ways, research completed in partnership last year showed some of the key triggers with some surprising results.

Elizabeth says: “It’s been an interesting journey with lots learnt and lots still to discover.¬† Get armed to make a big difference by coming along to Green Drinks.”
