Hosted in connection with the Sustainability Leaders Forum 2021, the Skills Seminars bring together sustainability and CSR professionals of all levels for an intensive half-day of keynote talks, panel debates and practical masterclasses – all focused on closing the sustainability skills gap and enhancing professional development.
Seminars will focus on an array of skills and career development areas – from communication and team management through to career mobility and innovation – with experts speakers from the likes of Virgin Media, Tesco, Capgemini and the ICRS.
Sustainability Leaders Forum
Coca-Cola, Heineken, Ikea, ING, Sky, Willmott Dixon and Zalando are among the headline brands that will feature at edie's biggest event of the year – the Sustainability Leaders Forum – which takes place as a global, virtual event on 2-4 February 2021.
Under the ambition of Together We Can, the Sustainability Leaders Forum will be a collaborative online experience; combining powerful keynote talks with interactive panel debates and co-creative workshops – all dedicated to inspiring courageous, collective action to solve the climate crisis.
Having evolved from a face-to-face event to a new, virtual experience, the Sustainability Leaders Forum 2021 will allow delegates to "choose their own adventure", with a plethora of session themes including net-zero strategy, sustainable investment, supply chain innovation, regeneration and biodiversity, and achieving the SDGs.
Standing out from the crowd of online events, the Forum will be a truly collaborative experience. Innovative "speed networking" technology will connect delegates based on ticket types via video chats, while co-creative workshops will be professionally facilitated to deliver tangible outputs. Additionally, virtual exhibition booths will showcase some of the cutting-edge technologies and services that will shape the decade of sustainable business action.
