Book your tickets for the Products of Change Sustainability 101 Workshop

Products of Change’s educational arm is picking up pace as the team prepares for its first person-to-person Sustainability 101 Workshop taking place at the Informa Offices in London next month. Educating the industry and better informing its members to facilitate positive change is at the very core of the Products of Change community, so it is with great excitement and anticipation that the team looks towards its first In Real Life Sustainability 101 Workshop on Wednesday, 9 March. Created as the base line for the industry’s sustainability journey, the session will take place from 3 to 5.30pm at the Informa Offices at 240 Blackfriars Road, London, where the team will not only present basic principles on how businesses and individuals can take the next step on their sustainability journey, but also host a networking session for attendees after the workshop. The price of a Sustainability 101 Workshop ticket is £120 per person for non POC members, while members will receive a 20 per cent discount. There are currently 60 spaces available for the full workshop, so get in touch quick to secure your space.

The launch of Products of Change’s educational workshop was hailed a success last year when the team delivered a three hour virtual session to Viacom UK (now Paramount UK) in December 2021. Originally planned as an in-person workshop, the session witnessed the Paramount team embrace the topic of sustainability and deliver ‘some truly innovative thinking.’ Simta Sawhney, director of category at Paramount UK, said of the workshop: “Helena and June were fantastic in working with the team as we embark on our sustainability journey. They opened our minds to such an important subject which can be a minefield to navigate. “The learnings we have taken away from the session will be invaluable to the way we think about our day to day business.”
