Places are going fast for the last in the series of 2016 Three Counties Big Breakfasts on 15 September at the Three Counties Showground in Malvern, when business people will be given a vision of a green future, featuring alternative sources of power and alternative business models, by Ecotricity ambassador Helen Taylor.
Ecotricity, established by Dale Vince to supply green energy at a time when conventional power sources held sway, now employs 700 people in Gloucestershire, operating a not-for-dividend approach which is referred to as a 'bills into mills' business model. Helen joined the company five years ago.
Angus Taylor, Partner at Bruton Knowles said “It's 20 years since Dale Vince built his first wind turbine in Nympsfield. Back then Dale was fresh from the New Age traveller scene; today he’s the man at the helm of Ecotricity which employs 800 people, and owner of Forest Green Rovers. i am looking forward to learning more about Ecotricity and their vision of how electricity is made and used in Britain.”
The Big Breakfast series, supported by Harrison Clark Rickerbys, Bruton Knowles and Three Counties, gives business people the chance to listen to key speakers and to network with fellow professionals. It always features a lively question and answer session and the chance to share valuable insights into each speaker’s vision and ambitions for the future.
The format is the same for each event with registration at the Three Counties Showground at 7.30am followed by breakfast, meet and mingle, speakers and a Q&A session wrapping up at 9am.
