Speaking & Media

I am a passionate speaker who is keen to share my experiences, knowledge and learnings on sustainable food systems with a diverse range of organisations. I moderate events, give presentations to conferences and offer a range of specific content level talks both within the UK and internationally. I adapt my presentations to meet the needs of the audience. I cover a wide variety of topics including the need for food systems transformation, sustainability challenges & opportunities, sustainability trends, innovation in the food system and examples of collaborative action across business, governments and civil society organisations. Specific issue areas include, but are not limited to, sustainable nutrition, sustainable diets, plant-based eating, food waste issues and regenerative agriculture. I am an experienced facilitator and moderator having been involved in a wide range of workshops and seminars.

RECENT EXAMPLES INCLUDE:

Webinar on Sustainable Nutrition: A business Case for Sustainable Diets ( April 2020)
Moderating a panel discussion at the Future of Retail Trends event in London (Nov 2019)

What’s in store for the future of plant-based food? ( Table Talk, May 2020)The growth in demand for plant-based products continues. New tech developments are providing more opportunities to not only bring plant-based diets into the mainstream, but make our plants work even harder to provide more protein. In a fascinating and lively discussion I join two other experts rom The Meatless Farm Company and Natural to discuss how the plant-based world is changing, what blockers still stand in the way of increased consumer adoption of plant-based food and drink, and what exciting developments lie ahead in the near future.
