Just a quick note on one of the many adventures I failed to post on this year, for a variety of reasons – but the most important being that my blog was out of action for well over a month. In any event, today (though this is actually posted on 13 August), I scooted across to the House of Hackney to do a fireside chat session.
Because of a shortage of time, I went by taxi. First taxi driver misunderstood and dropped me somewhere with a similar name, but some way away. Second got it right. Still arrived early and had time to take a look around inside this fascinating business, also a B Corp.
Because of a diary confusion, I had to scoot out of our session slightly before the end to do a virtual fireside chat in Toronto, supporting the candidature of Chloe Brown for city mayor. (In the end, she lost in the election.) Was attracted by her intelligence and wider ambition – and by the fact that Rob Wolloch and her team were building their campaign for office around the triple bottom line.
