Sir Tim Smit KBE - Our after-dinner speaker


Sir Tim Smit KBE, Executive Vice Chairman and Co-founder of the Eden Project to speak at this year’s Annual Dinner. 

Reflecting our own mission to represent an ever-changing, evolving and diverse retail property and placemaking community, Sir Tim will share experiences of the pivotal role of the Eden Project.

Delivering award winning local regeneration and a contribution of 1.7 billion to the Cornish economy, it challenged perception and demonstrated that sustainability is not about sandals and nut cutlets but about good business practice and the citizenship values of the future. 

These are values that he continues to inject in to new entrepreneurial social enterprises, challenging conventional boundaries and relationships to positively influence places and communities. Read more about Sir Tim Smit KBE here.
