Join us on Thursday May 26 at 6:15pm at BT HQ in London for a fireside chat and drinks with Anne-Marie Tomchak to hear about how sustainability is changing the face of business. There will also be a showcase of some top startups in sustainability.

Since starting out as a journalist in RTE almost 20 years ago, Anne-Marie has been an innovator across news, technology and fashion. She launched the social media investigative unit BBC Trending, she has led editorial teams at Mashable and British Vogue and her television documentary work is on the Irish curriculum.

Now Anne-Marie is part of a new wave of impact entrepreneurs bringing fresh thinking to the way we engage with sustainability. Her company DesignTracker helps people decarbonise their homes – something that must happen for the UK to meet climate targets. She's also a co-founder of the circular fashion non-profit ShareJoy which sells preloved clothing to raise funds for mental health charities.

This chat with Anne-Marie will look at how technology and fashion are contributing to the future of the planet and how optimists from a range of backgrounds can help solve the world's biggest problem and transform business as we know it.

Anne-Marie will be in conversation with Ciara Riordan who is Social Media Editor at BBC News and an award winning journalist, presenter and producer. She previously interviewed Sir David Attenborough and this went viral when she asked him what animal he would be for a day! (Answer: A sloth!).

Doors Open at 6:15pm with registration and drinks. Doors closing at 7pm when the event will start.

Livestream available on Zoom for international attendees

Venue: BT HQ, One Braham Street, Aldgate, E18EE – not the BT Tower!
