The session will be led by Fiona Ellis and David Ballard. It will address the following questions:
What enables one organisation to tackle climate change more effectively than another?
How can leaders identify when initiatives are likely to stall and what is needed in order to create progress?
This workshop presents PACT, a research-based framework for strategic capacity building designed to help organisations respond to pressure for climate change mitigation and adaptation - as well as other sustainable development imperatives - and identify strategic pathways for effective response.
Fiona Ellis has been a director and managing consultant of Bath Consultancy Group over the past ten years. Her work includes leadership and HR development, culture change and whole-system transformation. She has worked internationally for clients in the oil industry, television, telecoms and financial services as well as government and health sector organisations in the UK. Fiona leads the consultancy’s HiTech service group as well as its emerging practice for building change capacity in a low carbon world.
David Ballard is a director of Alexander Ballard Ltd, which he co-founded in response to demands for a consultancy with expertise in business strategy, the environment, sustainable development, communications, organisational change and social transformation. David led the development of PACT, which is currently being used as a core element of the UK’s first Climate Change Risk Assessment and Adaptation Economic Analysis. He has a strong background in business strategy and a prolonged experience of working in the sustainability field for organisations in commercial and governmental sectors. His deep understanding of change at the organisational, personal and social level gives him a unique command of the issues inherent in developing sharp, creative and commercially viable responses to climate change and other related sustainability issues.
All talks will be followed by a buffet reception where you will have the opportunity to meet the speakers, as well as share experiences and network with fellow delegates.
