About this Event

The Festival was due to take place on the 1st October 2020, but has been moved to April 2021 amid concerns over COVID-19. Read the statement here.

The Gala Dinner will be the grand finalé to the Festival of Sustainable Business. With inspiring speakers and organisations taking the lead in carbon neutrality, this is a great opportunity to network, learn and celebrate!

Taking place at The Bristol on the evening of 29th April, the dinner will begin with a drinks reception, followed by a gourmet 3 course dinner, prepared using locally and sustainably-sourced produce.

This year as a little twist, all standard meals will be vegetarian. But fear not meat-eaters, if you don't want to venture into the world of meat-free, meat is still on the menu, just let us know under "dietary requirements"!

Dress Code: Business attire

Timings:

Drinks reception 19.00

Sit down for Dinner at 19.45

We are delighted to be joined by Mike Barry and the Green Poet, Martin Kiszko!

Mike Barry, Board Trustee at A Blueprint for Better Business

Mike is a change agent, committed to helping business big and small, new and established to prepare for and succeed in the great sustainability disruption that will wash through the economy in the 2020s.

Mike was until recently Director of Sustainable Business at Marks & Spencer, spearheading its ground-breaking Plan A (because there is no Plan B for the one planet we have) sustainability programme. He co-chaired the Consumer Goods Forum’s sustainability work bringing the world’s largest retailers and fast moving consumer goods brands together to work on issues such as deforestation, plastics and forced labour. He is a Senior Associate at the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership.

Martin Kiszko, Green Poet

Martin began his career as an assistant to veteran film composer Edward Williams with whom he co-founded an inter-media performance group Elektrodome. Between 1984-2017 he composed and orchestrated over 200 scores for film and television and released nine albums with Europe’s finest orchestras: the London Film Orchestra, London Sinfonietta, Munich Symphony Orchestra, City of Prague Philharmonic and the Brunel Ensemble. His score for the BBC's Dreamworks promo (requested by and made for Steven Spielberg and the BBC) was awarded Best Music Video at Missoula Film Festival USA.

Martin is a passionate environmentalist and has written two poetry books for children: Green Poems for a Blue Planet and Verse for the Earth. He has travelled around the UK and worldwide with his one man show based on the books

Are you offering FEN member discounts? Unfortunately, we are not offering discounts to members of The Future Economy Network this year. However, members can receive discounts to exhibit at the Festival, find out more here.

Why are you making standard meals vegetarian this year? The CCC has reported that the UK needs to cut meat and dairy consumption by 20% per person to help reduce climate change. This is our way of contributing to this reduction.
