First Business Impact School Blog!

This is my first ever blog for a Business Impact School. Wish me luck!!

The valuing nature Business Impact School was held in London and required only getting a short flight from Belfast (mind you I thought an early flight seemed like a good idea at the time….until I realised the coffee shop hadn’t opened yet). 

The Business Impact School was hosted by Willis Towers Watson at the Willis Building and was located near the top floor where you could see the Thames River and the London eye, (mind you my ears did pop a few times going up in the elevator).


A few thoughts after the Valuing Nature’s Business Impact School

Taking seriously the email my supervisor sent me that morning to inform me about the Business Impact School was perhaps one of the wisest things I have done during the first months of my PhD journey. I immediately felt that I had to be part of this community and that I had to take hold of the opportunity Valuing Nature was offering to restless environmentally-conscious young researchers like myself, to get on the wagon to the frontline of the war we declared against nature capital's mismanagement.
