The sustainable futures report for the 22nd April. Yes, this is Anthony Day. Here I am again with another episode and a lot to catch up on. The Sustainable Best Practice Exchange took place last week. There's a lot to report on that and I'll include it in future episodes. To keep exchanging best practice I'm setting up the Sustainable Best Practice Mastermind group and a number of conference delegates have already expressed interest. There’s a couple of places left, so if you want to join a select group of business leaders and public officials, call me today on 07803 616877 for an invitation to the Orientation and Selection Day. It’s provisionally on 7th July.
