Reset Connect, an innovative sustainability and net-zero event for innovators and investors has unveiled its exciting speaker line-up, which includes representatives from leading financial and funding providers Starling Bank, Triodos Bank and Sustainable Ventures.
Taking place on 28th – 29th June 2022 at London’s ExCeL, Reset Connect is fast-becoming the UK’s largest sustainability ecosystem and green investment event, committed to bridging the gap between business leaders, government and funding to drive real and impactful environmental change.
Working in partnership with London Climate Action Week, this will be the first in-person Reset Connect event to take place, following the success of its virtual launch in 2021.
With 100+ confirmed exhibitors, the two-day event will welcome over 120 speakers through a combination of workshops, keynote talks and engaging panel discussions across the ‘Trailblazer’, ‘Pioneer’ and ‘Ground Breaker’ Stages, together with the ‘London’ and ‘Investor’ Hubs.
Highlights for investors and the wider finance community include:
- A panel discussion on “Sustainable Finance and Investment in the Future” featuring Bevis Watts, Chief Executive Officer of Triodos Bank
- A panel discussion on “Future investment strategy for Green SME Businesses and Start-ups” featuring Toni Coulson, Head of Forward Flow Lending, Starling Bank
- A panel discussion on “Funding climate change solutions and sustainable business ventures” featuring Andrew Wordsworth, Co-Founder and CEO of Sustainable Ventures
- The opportunity to meet driven entrepreneurs and energy innovators pitching for investment via the Reset Connect Innovation Hub
With the UK requiring an average investment of £40 billion per year, over the next 10 years, to reach its net-zero goals, Reset Connect has been developed to help businesses and organisations implement their own sustainability strategies, whilst driving investment into the growing ‘green’ and ClimateTech sectors.
Duncan Reid, co-founder and CEO of Reset Connect confirmed: “Addressing
climate change will be an expensive task, where we not only need organisations across both public and private sectors to think and act on not only how to deliver their sustainability strategies, but we also need to drive vital funding and investment into the space”.
To date, we’ve heard a lot about what needs to happen, but this is the opportunity for the business and finance community to get into action and make it happen. Our first in-person event this June is instrumental in driving this. With our 120 strong speaker line-up of thought-leaders and sustainable change-makers, I know we will deliver excellent value and education through talks, workshops and panel discussions… Watch this space.”
Co-founded by experienced events professionals, Reset Connect is set to become the UK’s leading sustainability conference and community, that successfully unites business leaders, investors and change-makers in helping the UK achieve net-zero.
