Please join Net Impact London Professional for a fun filled evening of giving and good times. This event will be focused on networking and getting to know colleagues in the CSR professional community. Rather than buying a gift, everyone is encouraged to bring an item that they already own or a card with your contact info and a service that you could share with someone. For example, if you are graphic designer, you could offer 30 minutes of design time. Or, if you have a bunch of eco-friendly light bulbs, bring one to share with the group. During the evening our friends from Ecomodo and Spots of Time will share their experiences and help us facilitate the gift and skills exchange game!
Spots of Time - Phillippa Banister, Community Manager - Phillippa has experience of grassroots community building work in rural Cameroon and with the homeless in Bradford. She is a recent graduate from the prestigious Forum for the Future Masters programme and as part of this has completed projects with Unilever, Fairtrade Foundation and Flintshire County Council. She completed an undergraduate degree in Drama and English and likes working on organic farms.
Ecomodo - Tracy Currer, Co-founder - With twenty years experience designing interactions between people and products, Tracy believes the power of design can find the common ground between the way the mass public want to live and the changes we all must make to create a more sustainable future. Her latest venture, Ecomodo, an award winning social enterprise, helps people consume less, whilst enjoying rich, fulfilling and social lives. Enabling people to share everyday goods, skills and spaces, Ecomodo is recognised as a pioneer in the emerging global market of collaborative consumption. Winner of the 2010 Green Award for the Best Use of Online Media, Ecomodo adopts a combination of gifting, micro-enterprise and fundraising to provide a unique motivation model.
This is a great opportunity to learn more about Net Impact, network with others and learn about our upcoming events in the New Year. Refreshments will be served! Mulled wine will be on sale for £1. We ho, ho, hope to see you there!
PS – Please note that the Hub Islington is a walk up and does not have an elevator.
