The business world has a role to play in helping to heal the planet by improving the working environment within the office and workspaces using sustainable products. The business world must move from an “ego-system” to an “eco-system” whereby leaders are responsible for their customers, staff, and their families.
This event will present the power of business in this new world we are entering, and the healing power of nature. The importance of humanity being connected to nature if we are to create a better world for the children who will be following us. How collaborating with the resources on offer in nature we can heal ourselves and the planet.
Hugh Dinning has had nearly 50 years of experience in the textile arena with much success and a variety of experiences. Hugh has managed several textile businesses offering casual wear, denim jeans, and knitwear with both distribution and wholesale experience, as well as an international importing business. However, Hugh realised that many of the products he had been involved in producing since the 1960s had been poisoning the earth and wanted to change his focus to find products that would be both successful and purposeful. A trip to India in 2017 introduced him to new partners and products and became the foundation of what is now The Keeper. Hugh believes that this journey, and the power of business choices and their long-term impact, can help to heal the world.
