Continuing To Support and Add Value into 2021
Happy New Year Everyone!
I hope you were able to enjoy the festive break and have returned to work feeling revitalised and ready to embrace all things sustainability.
Well, it has been a bit of a funny start to the year for the Future Economy and Future Leap teams. The lockdown has meant that some team members are part-time furloughed. As such there may be a little delay in our response times, but rest assured that our priority is to continue to deliver excellent customer service to our community, be that through our weekly events or through accessing other membership benefits.
I sincerely hope that all readers are faring well during this most recent lockdown and my sympathies go out to anyone personally affected by COVID-19. Such a catastrophic event can certainly give rise to reflections on what is important in life, such as family, friends and our interaction with the planet. The Future Economy Network is so proud to be facilitating quality events and networking opportunities to help business’ interaction with the planet be a positive one. Members, don’t forget to complete our 5-minute Membership Survey to let us know your views about the membership and to be in with a chance to win free co-working/event bookings – closing date 31st Jan!
2020 was certainly a challenging year for many but I wanted to take this opportunity for a little boast about our achievements and to thank the team for their relentless commitment. In 2020, we expanded our Network and event offer and delivered 49 events, welcoming 2,017 attendees. Here are some other highlights:
We have also been reflecting upon our own sustainability journey over recent months and held an event in December about how Future Leap has achieved carbon neutrality. Our next goal is to achieve B-Corp accreditation and so we will be paying close attention at today’s‘Getting Started with B-Corp’ workshop. If you didn’t book on to this, do not despair as all our events are now recorded so you can view them at your leisure.
Here’s to continuing to inspire our community of change makers! Thanks as always for your support.
