Conscious Living & Working Conference

I am delighted to say I will have a display at the Conscious Living & Working Conference. It will take place on 20th September 2019, at the Law Society in Dublin This conference is an exciting and innovative opportunity for us to look at the issues of climate change, our work and our lives. We believe that, despite the negative news that surrounds us, opportunity now presents itself to all of us to really out the choices we have and understand how we can make a real and lasting difference. Book your ticket here I am looking forward to this day and all the discussions that are going to take place.
