Event details:

We are delighted to welcome Emma Fletcher, MD of SmithsonHill, to present our webinar.

Emma was to be our speaker at the March Dinner, which was unable to proceed due to the Covid-19 lockdown. Many people had already registered for our Dinner so we'd like to bring Emma's talk live to you online.   There will be a short Q&A with Emma after her talk.

Okay, we can't provide the usual excellent meal, fabulous wines, stunning surroundings of Jesus College nor that  famous face-to-face networking experience, but we thought this webinar might be the next best thing. We won't stop you having a nice glass of wine while listening though!


Once you register to join the webinar we will send you the Zoom link on the 2nd July by email. 


About Emma:
Emma is MD of SmithsonHill, Director at Hill Group and Chair of the Swaffham Prior Community Land Trust. She is passionate about individuals using their position and skills to ‘be the change’. Society faces many complex and major issues. It is no wonder that many individuals, businesses and policy makers seem to be unable to find their way through the maze.
Using examples of projects she is working on, like ARC Cambridge, Hill Foundation 200 and Heating Swaffham Prior, Emma will be speaking about why she believes taking action is necessary and why the path to sustainability and resilience sometimes involves taking two steps forward and one step back.

A graduate of the University of Cambridge in Land Economy and a Rural Surveyor by trade, Emma  has over 20 years’ experience in property development, including Project Manager at Hill Group and Property Director at Marshall Group Properties.

Emma is a council member of the Cambridge Forum for the Construction Industry, Chair of Swaffham Prior Community Land Trust, who are working to set up the first village wide sustainable heating system in the countryy.
