What a week!
Finally back in Terra Infirma Towers after a whirlwind week, particularly yesterday where I travelled from London to York, gave a presentation on the business case for sustainability and sustainability strategy to the Sustainability Committee of a major client, then got two hours at home before heading off to the business awards.
My hosts Muckle LLP were runners up in the CSR stakes – I was gutted for them as I thought they deserved to win and not just because I was sitting with them. Following the Service Nework event I did last month, I wrote a short piece on the business case for service sector companies to go green and featured Muckle as a case study. They’re also featuring in the Green Executive.
The business awards themselves were very glitzy – all pounding music, video clips and sparkling, swirling lights. Keynote speaker was TV presenter Tom Gutteridge who told a fascinating anecdote about Jeremy Clarkson came within three inches of getting decapitated by a flying saw blade in the first series of Robot Wars (a guilty pleasure of mine – Robot Wars that is, not Clarkson dodging death).
Anyway, back to the grindstone – while I was away another project got the green light and I’ve pinned down another couple of interviewees for The Green Executive. Happy days!
