Thanks Jordan! If you would like to be a moderator - introduce the speaker/answer questions in the chat or make sure they are put to the speakers so they don't have to try and do everything at once that would be great - email me and let me know when you have availability during the week. Also spread the word and if you can organise a Greener AHP event that week in your local trust that would be ideal - we're thinking a challenge (bring your reusable cup to work, active travel competition between professions/depts, meat free Monday etc.) or creating a network if there isn't one already, Love to hear all ideas! Thanks Jackie

Fantastic! Love to know more about the content so we can also share, what are people speaking about and which services? We have a physio presentation at the same time so will check if can rearrange to avoid clash. BW Jackie
