Live meetings are a feature on the new web hub

Members can join a live Zoom meeting where the Products of Change team will talk about the future plans One of the many benefits of joining Products of Change is the opportunity to connect and network with other like-minded individuals. The first chance to do this will be on Thursday at 4pm GMT via a zoom link (details will be sent to members). “This meeting welcomes our current and new members to the Products of Change platform,” says Helena Mansell-Stopher, director of Products of Change. “We will be updating all members on the current work-streams and each category head will present their group’s ambitions. We look forward to discussing how far we have come as a group and our next steps. We’re all buzzing after the SILC conference last week, so I’m sure we’ll also be following up on some of the messages that came out of that.” There is another live Q&A session for members on Tuesday 8 December at 1pm GMT with packaging expert Mike Swain from Pack IDS. Mike will be taking packaging queries. “These live meetings are a unique opportunity for individuals to network and pick the brains of a wealth of experts across a broad spectrum of industry,” says Helena. “They are very informal sessions, and everyone is very welcome. You can ask questions or just sit and listen. It is up to you.” Members can also access a series of webinars from: - Jade Snart, Senior Sustainability Manager at George at Asda - Mike Swain founder of Pack IDS and Senior Advisor to the UK Packaging Council - Jonathan Watson from Kids Insights - Katy Newnham, Director at Wastebusters, the leading UK children’s charity for sustainable education within schools - James George, Network Development Lead at the Ellen MacArthur Foundation - Maura Regan, President of Licensing International From just £165 annually per person, members of Products of Change will have access to content from podcasts and webinars from visionaries to never-seen-before research findings; inspiring educational modules to news galore – as well as a platform to connect and network with other like-minded individuals.
