Circular economy workshops and talks

Our interactive circular economy workshops help you and your team understand the principles and practicalities, so you can see how it helps reduce costs and risks, improve productivity, increase resilience and improve competitiveness. 

For shorter events, our circular economy talks cover the concept, and the practical applications, helping to raise awareness, highlight opportunities and spark ideas to kick-start your circular journey.

We use a wide range of practical examples from our extensive case study database to help you develop your own business case, engage your key stakeholders and create action plans.

We can help introduce people to the circular economy concepts and talk about the global context.  We cover risks and trends, highlighting the reasons why the circular economy is essential for business and society. Our circular economy components framework  provides a logical way to think about the changes needed at each stage of the supply chain.  Often, we include circular business models, with both well-known and new, disruptive examples. 

We also work with organisations who want to go beyond the basics, looking at the issues and opportunities, and aiming to generate ideas to take forward to the next stage.

Our previous talks and workshops have focussed on specific market sectors, or organisational functions:  helping each group think about what the circular economy means for them, and how they can use it to make stronger, competitive and sustainable businesses.

We have our own workshop format, and we also have circular economy board and card games.  If you’re in the UK and you’d like to discuss using the In the Loop boardgame, or Barry Waddilove’s system design game (featured in Catherine’s award-winning book), please get in touch.
