A focus group, snapped in passing
No place for a vegetarian
Up very early to be driven across to Cheshunt, in Hertfordshire, for a meeting of the Tesco Scale for Good Advisory Board. Great that Amy (Birchall) was able to make it, too. Fascinating off-the-record day, including presentations on issues around food security and the management of supply chain risks.
Then back to London for a dinner at Aubaine, Dover Street, with five people interested in the future of economics: John Fullerton of the Capital Institute, Eric Lonergan of M&G Investments’ Macro Investment Business, Kate Raworth (who came up with the notion of Doughnut Economics), Joss Tantram of Terrafiniti, and Markus Zils of Returnity Partners (who used to run McKinsey’s Circular Economy practice). A fascinating discussion, which left we wanting (a lot) more. Am pondering a push into the bubbling-under world of Breakthrough Economics.
