The solutionists – how businesses can fix the future  by Solitaire Townsend

Introducing a new breed of sustainability leader and inviting you to join them.

In the face of the climate emergency, we desperately need new solutions and the leaders to drive them forward.

The solutionists by Solitaire Townsend tells the stories of leading entrepreneurs and organisations paving the way to solving the climate crisis whilst driving business innovation and growth. The book sets out a blueprint, coaching the reader through the steps, mindsets and strategies it will take to lead change.

An ethical entrepreneur and solutionist herself, Solitaire has also worked with the world’s most influential organisations, from Google to the United Nations, Ikea to WWF, providing her with a wealth of invaluable knowledge to share.

In this online event, Rebecca Willis spoke to Solitaire about her book and her insights into what needs to change for a new generation of business leaders to transform businesses and create a more sustainable society. Their discussion was followed by an audience Q&A.
