I’ve just come back from Northern Ireland where I was attending and speaking at the Business in the Community’s first Summit there. I also spent time in store and talking to colleagues. The Summit was excellent and spoke to the role that business must play in helping to make a difference, particularly in these current challenging times. Northern Ireland’s economy in particular is not recovering as fast as the rest of the UK and youth unemployment is rising.
I was asked by BBC Radio our views on our role and gave a quick interview alongside Mike Barry of M&S. I love to collaborate with other companies as together we can make the most difference even if our view on making sustainability affordable and accessible is different to how M&S see themselves. Mike’s a great guy. You can hear the clip below:
