The Authentic Investor

This event has already happened​
Finance is waking up to the urgency of sustainability challenges, and of the need to serve society better. Working to encourage and accelerate this trend takes energy and creativity. But long-established cultures, norms and behaviours are slow to change.

Meaningful change on the scale we need requires more than ‘materiality’, ‘risk’ and the ‘business case’. It takes heart, not just head. It takes vision, values and passion.

Sustaining these takes effort. From time to time our batteries need recharging.

This retreat is designed to do just that. It will help us re-discover the authenticity of vision, values and passion for sustainability and a finance industry that serves society.
The retreat gave me permission to explore who I am and what is important to me in life and work, and was a wonderful grounding opportunity. This is a powerful development opportunity for people in investment.
