Mike Barry (ex M&S), Andy Gouldson (Professor of Environmental policy ), and Gordon Rogers (Head of Sustainability at Yorkshire Water) will be joined by Ashley Cooper, who has agreed to act as a keynote speaker for our inaugural event in Leeds in Spring next year.

Ashley has spent the last 15 years travelling to every corner of the globe creating the most comprehensive photographic recording of the effects of global warming and climate change.

Having published a book of his favourite photo’s, titled Images from a Warming Planet, Ashley wanted to share his experiences, and has chosen to work with In the Circle to help highlight the need for everyone, but particularly businesses, to act sustainably to help reverse the effects of a warming planet.

Ashley has received plaudits for his astonishing work from the great and good, including environmentalist and narrator Sir David Attenborough, actor Emma Thompson and the Pope. We are looking forward to hearing about his exploits and adventures from around the globe.
