Some conferences sound just too good to pass up. This one, the Sustainability Leaders Forum 2012 is one of those. Taking place on 5th December in London at the CBI Conference Centre, the one-day agenda is crammed with what promises to be a host of interesting and innovative insights and aproaches to old and new challenges, from which I hope to learn and have the opportunity to discuss. "The Sustainability Leaders Forum has been developed as a platform for forward-thinking professionals who want to collaborate, challenge the status quo and drive progressive change across their organisation and supply chain." Sounds good to me!
