Free webinar scheduled for Tuesday, July 13

Middle management is often seen as the hardest group to engage when it comes to implementing practices to create a sustainable business, due to pressures of meeting deadlines and targets.

A free webinar aims to address this by helping businesses of all sizes to work with middle management to embed sustainability.

The webinar is part of a series of business webinars from The Prince’s Mayday Network, the UK's largest group of businesses committed to taking action on climate change, founded by HRH The Prince of Wales in 2007.

Key speakers include Paul Turner, Head of Sustainable Development, Lloyds Banking Group and Fiona Ball, Head of Environment, BSkyB.

There will also be chance to ask questions specific to your business and how The Prince's Mayday Network can support you with your employee engagement programmes and extend the impact of your climate change activities.

Matthew Mellen, Mayday Campaign Manager, said: “The Mayday Network has always offered workshops to members to provide support and knowledge sharing along all the steps of the Mayday Journey.

“This year we are also offering webinars so that members from all parts of the UK and beyond can benefit from the support we provide. When it comes to engaging employees on sustainability, tackling middle management is a challenge facing many businesses so this webinar will be invaluable to businesses of all sizes and from all sectors.”
