Breakout Rooms

  • After our Guest Speakers have given their speeches, we will be placing everyone into breakout rooms to give you a chance to talk in smaller groups – 15 Minutes / Max 5 People Per Room.
  • Paul and Kasia will pose a question for you to discuss after their two speeches. And after Ashley's third and final speech, we will wrap up the ESG and answer any questions you may have.


  • Please don’t be shy - we are all here for each other!
  • Talk about yourself, your job, your passions, your company, and your ideas.
  • What you are hoping to gain from the ESG and what can you offer to the ESG community.
  • In terms of advice, webinars, guest speaking, consultancy services, inspirational talks, other connections, roundtables, etc.
  • Talk about any initiatives yourself or your company are currently running/have run previously (what is going well / what hasn’t gone so well), what barriers or obstacles is your company facing currently and what support would really help you out.
  • Think E,D&I / Environmental & Sustainability / Mental Health / Wellbeing / Ex-Military / Charity.
  • Be Vocal. Is there anything that you would like to ask our Guest Speakers, or maybe you would to like to ask the ESG for help or some advice on, perhaps we can help you find a solution on something in particular or you’d like some inspiration for a new project? This is your platform!


For every person that attends this month's ESG, we will plant a tree through our partnership with Ecologi and there will also be an opportunity to support one of three fantastic projects through our partnership with B1G1.

Thank you so much and we can't wait to have you with us!
