Committees: Round tables

As part of the latest phase in my working life, I have been taking stock of my parallel life as a 'Committee Person'. With some regret, late in 2007 I resigned several committee memberships—notably the Chairmanship of the Advisory Council of the Export Credits Guarantee Department (ECGD), my membership of the RSA Advisory Council and my role as a Trustee at the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre (B&HRRC: http://www.business-humanrights.org/Home). Happily, however, in this third case my colleague Kavita Prakash-Mani seamlessly took over from me as a Trustee and I continue to serve as Senior Advisor.

At the same time, I have found myself drawn into a number of new roles that better align with my growing focus on scalable entrepreneurial solutions, including advisory board memberships with organizations like 2degrees http://www.2degreesnetwork.com/, EcoVadis (http://www.ecovadis.com), Physic Ventures (http://www.physicventures.com) and zouk ventures (http://www.zouk.com). Then late in 2007 I was also invited to become a Visiting Professor at the Doughty Centre for Corporate Responsibility at the Cranfield University School of Management (http://www.som.cranfield.ac.uk/som/research/centres/ccr/).

Two of my favourite people: Jane Nelson and Sir Geoffrey Chandler, who have both served on SustainAbility’s Council and as Trustees of The Environment Foundation, which I continue to chair.
