TMA Bristol Post Event Write Up
Redefining what constitutes the ‘future viability of a company’ as the combined effect of the climate and biodiversity crises moves from theory, into lived experience, with environmental and social challenges now core value propositions and board room issues.
On 26th September 2023, over 40 delegates attended the TMA UK’s latest southwest event for an evening of lively conversation and networking.
Guest speakers Simon Bailey and Prof. Simon Pringle from LSP Leadership (www.lspleadership.com) challenged, encouraged, and inspired the audience about their roles in navigating change and exploring the ways in which a complex variety of dynamics influence the future value and purpose of organisations.
Both speakers imparted their vision, that now more clearly than ever, there is the necessity of leaders and their organisations to bring about an accelerated transition towards a regenerative enterprise, ecology, and society.
Evidence from Prof. Pringle’s slides demonstrated we are at a critical juncture, and we have a choice, yet people, and organisations, are in the main, slow to recognise our current imperative of the climate emergency/biodiversity loss and social inequity, and slow to realise the related commercial and personal opportunities that our transition to a regenerative economy can bring.
And to that end, what followed, was an audience conversation about the role leaders and leadership plays as a key differentiating factor in this equation, at all levels, and to increase leaders’ capacity and agency to lead this transition, starting with self, their teams and also the systems within which they operate.
Our thanks to the guest speakers, Simon Bailey and Prof. Simon Pringle.
And thank you to Joanne Rumley, Anton de Leeuw, Lydia Lloyd, Vesela Romagnoli, and Hayley Downes for making this possible.
The panel event was followed by networking over drinks and canapés.
This event was kindly hosted and sponsored by PWC in collaboration with Foot Anstey
