Thought Leadership

We have very clear beliefs that Sustainable Development is vital to the competitiveness of business and organisations and not an add-on or fad that can be picked up or put down dependent on whim.

Our seminar series, Oomph Seminars, is designed to stimulate and drive fresh ideas into sustainability consideration. The output from these are here.

In order to inform the debate around sustainable development in more formal ways we are very active at conferences in UK and in the expression of our beliefs and in published articles and independent papers.Some of the most recent are listed below.

It is fantastic to leave a seminar feeling inspired and full of practical ideas. Thursday’s oomph seminar did exactly that, Ben and Dan are naturals at putting an audience at ease which meant real participation from the group. As environmental professionals often form a one person team, it is fantastic to share a room with like minded individuals from local businesses who have faced and tackled similar challenges and can offer insight and advice. Eagerly anticipating the next installment of Oomph!

Thank you both for inviting us to today’s Oomph seminar. From our point of view, we found the stimulus material and subsequent debate insightful from a sustainability perspective, but also in a wider context applicable to the successful deployment of general business initiatives.

Really enjoyed this morning. I have attended very few seminars over the past two years simple because they are all too similar, often the the same speakers and follow the same theme. Today was most importantly enjoyable, interesting and got the brain cells working. I like small groups with variety of people and backgrounds.
