About the speaker

Eoin McQuone

With more than 20 years of business leadership experience myself, I understand the important issues you are facing. You need to grow and secure your business and you want to leave a legacy for the next generation.
Can you do both?
I believe that you can.
Building a profitable, future-proof business nowadays requires a change from the traditional model. I’ve spent my career understanding customer needs to design new value propositions and business models that drive business growth.
It’s clear to me that we have now reached a tipping point, where customer demand for sustainability is high, whereas most businesses understanding of how to really deliver on sustainability is low.
As a result, I believe that sustainability is the most vital entrepreneurial opportunity of the 21st century.
