Northern Light - The Irish Professional Business Network, is delighted to collaboratively host the 2nd event in our webinar series

 An Entrepreneur's Journey in Applied Sustainability from Australia to Sweden

The role of sustainability is evolving rapidly.  It is creating impacts and opportunities across multiple functional areas and industries.  Those effects are not just set to endure, they'll define the future contours of the business landscape - ignore them at your peril!

We will be inviting a wide range of guests over the course of this series. Each guest will be an expert in their specific industry domain and we will discuss with them how they perceive in-the-business, or 'applied' sustainability and what their journey looks like. We will aim to include a mix of start-up entrepreneurs as well as long established Nordic industries across a wide range of segments and domains.

In the 2nd online event on the 6th October 2022, Gary Cass will discuss with Roger Strevens and Rory Moore about his Entrepreneurship journey in the space of bacterial nanocellulose and his start-up learnings from same. 

We look forward to (virtually) meeting you all at the event series.
