21st June 2023 - 12:00pm - 12:45pm

This webinar forms part of our How To series. This time we’ll be covering how to communicate complex topics.

One of the barriers to climate progression is being unable to clearly communicate the challenges and opportunities to different audiences. In this session, James Wilcox will discuss different communication styles, how to pitch what you’re trying to communicate, the art of storytelling, as well as some hints and tips for communicating complex matters.

This webinar is exclusive to IEMA members and accounts for 1 hour of CPD.

Currently Head of Sustainability for Inspired Villages, a £500 million backed joint venture between Legal and General Capital and Natwest Pension Fund, I have worked in sustainability across construction for most of my career. A former Non-executive board member of Sustainability West Midlands, I am part of the Cambridge University Achieving Net Zero Cross-Industry Working Group delivering the Carbon Reduction Code, and a qualified British Cycling coach. Communication, as a coach, leader and to work effectively with stakeholders, has been a core area of personal and professional development and something I am keen to see develop in others. Sustainability on particular, can have some quite complex and hard to explain nuances, so being able to communicate these effectively to others is very important, in order to bring people on the journey with us.
