Coffee and Connect: Christopher Wayne

Zoom Register

Every month Shannon interviews a guest to learn about their ‘day in the life’ of their sustainability/ESG role. This month’s speaker is:

Christopher Wayne: Associate Director, Investing in Agriculture, Acumen.

Every session also includes time to network with your peers, you’ll have the opportunity to share your experiences, and find out how others are dealing with the same challenges you’re facing.

We also transform our interviews into an article for my GreenBiz Purpose & People column. CLICK HERE to read these articles.

What our attendees think…

“It’s so helpful to have these highly accomplished speakers, who are doing such important work, take time out to give us tips, advice and insight into their worlds. For those of us who may be thinking of dipping our toe into the CSR world, these insights are invaluable.”

“I always look forward to Coffee & Connect and having such rich, dynamic conversations with other impact-driven people. Shannon brings excellent speakers to the table and makes the discussions extremely approachable. My network grows stronger and opportunities to shift into an impact role are more plentiful with every session!”

“Coffee & Connect is an inspiring community of changemakers who not only want to excel in their sustainability and social responsibility careers, but who also genuinely want others to succeed as well. Shannon’s thoughtful discussion topics and questions help us reflect on the impact we want to make and it’s an excellent opportunity to meet and learn from others. These connections have given me hope for my career, and for our world!”
