Event Description

This essential one-day workshop will give sustainability professionals the skills they need to take the next step in their careers.

The first edie workshop: Sustainability Skills, brings together the leaders of tomorrow for an interactive day of practical sessions designed to actively enhance the skills required to take the next step in your sustainability career, plus case studies and open discussions from the sustainability leaders who are already making it happen.

The event offers you the opportunity to hone your existing skills and acquire new ones to ensure future career development and personal growth. The workshop will encourage interaction and engagement, allowing attendees to apply their new skills to effect change in their own organisations.

Sustainability management requires a broad set of both hard and soft skills; from communication and presentation skills and building the business case, to the power of influence and persuasion, the role of a sustainability professional is demanding and diverse.

The first edie workshop: Sustainability Skills, brings together the leaders of tomorrow for an interactive day of practical sessions designed to actively enhance the skills required to take the next step in your sustainability career, plus case studies and open discussions from the sustainability leaders who have already achieved success.
