The new talent agenda: Unlocking green jobs and skills in your company

Kite Insights will be hosting a morning of discussions to explore how we can unlock sustainable value in organisations by activating an organisation’s most valuable resource: its people. The dynamic session will look at how we can use organisation-wide upskilling and capacity building to implement effective cross-functional sustainability strategies, and explore how a holistic and embedded approach to green skills and talent development can drive both value and impact.  Join Kite Insights for a series of interactive conversations to support practitioners across organisations, from commercial growth and marketing leaders, to those in sustainability departments and in innovation teams,  to learning and development and human resources professionals, to embed sustainability in the company’s culture.

Who should attend?

Sustainability professionals, HR professionals including Chief Talent Officers and Chief People Officers, Learning and Development teams, Marketing and Communications teams.
