Join us on Monday 5th June for our next Calgary Chapter Meetup!
This months event takes a slightly different look at the world of renewables with not one but two guest speakers!
With a focus on financing and business development this is a must have for anyone looking to further understand how small to large business can establish themselves in the rebewable sector, and how large scale financing can trickle down to effect the average Albertan worker.
The Guest Speakers!
We're really pleased to announce the inclusion of Andrew in our June event. A resident of the UK we are lucky to steal an evening of his time whilst visiting Canada to share his knowledge of global financial sustainability and how decisions at the top level effect workers on the ground.
Andrew has led the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership's work with investors, banks, insurers and their regulators for nearly a decade since the global financial crisis. His team now convenes over 50 financial institutions from across five continents, developing strategies for collective action that will better align the financial system with the needs of a more equitable and environmentally sustainable economy. Andrew is also an Academic Visitor at the Bank of England.
Anthony is a Business Development Executive that is passionate about the energy industry. As a prior multinational project management professional he is passionate about leading innovation in energy . Anthony believes the areas of discovery, creation, consumption and mitigation of energy each provide opportunities for small to large businesses to develop upstream or downstream ventures with incredible promise. Anthony has made a successful transition from oil and gas to the renewable industry. Anthony received a Fuqua (Duke) MBA specialising in Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management.
"What do I need?"
A drink, a positive attitude, an open ear, and possibly some writing materials (if you're the kind of person who likes to take notes)... oh, and questions, feel free to ask our team and guest speaker questions so you can leave the event content and full of new knowledge.
Please note this is a CASH ONLY event.
"How do I attend?"
The event is free and open to members, supporters and anyone wishing to learn more about Iron & Earth. To register for this event please visit our Eventbrite page here to secure your space.
With summer fast approaching renewables, especially solar, will be a hot topic of conversation both provincially and nationally. So what better way to get up to speed than to join us for a drink or two as we discuss how workers can position themselves for a future in renewables.
We look forward to seeing you there!
