  • Our Members Say

    • 'An enjoyable evening with three high profile speakers who delivered an alternative perspective on sustainability and its importance in property portfolios followed by a reception with a group of people who were genuinely interested in networking.'

      - Tom Callaway, Project Manager, AECOM

      'Most interesting. A well organised & inspiring evening. Thanks!'

      - Rebecca Sarshar, 3D Reid

    • 'Fantastic, informative evening exploring the challenges for sustainability in the construction and property industry. The speakers spoke passionately about their individual experiences. They provided some helpful tips on engagement with the community via social media and how to improve the efficiency of workplaces by a focus on well being which I will be looking to implement in my own business. The usual friendly crowd making networking that little bit easier!'

      - Julia Wyatt, Partner, Green Tea Architects llp

    • 'The YEP sustainability event on October 24th provided a terrific opportunity to network with progressive companies from all sectors of the construction industry. I also received great insights from the other speakers on the importance of marrying environmental sustainability, social media and employee well-being in construction and fit-out projects. I have already followed-up with contacts made there on a number of issues that will improve the effectiveness of my organisation well into the future.'

      - Patrick Laine, Director of Corporate Partnerships, WWF

    • 'The thing that really grabbed me about YEP was the diverse range of delegates. Talking sustainability at networking events can occasionally be a bit repetitive, but it seemed with YEP that everybody was there for a reason, everyone had something interesting to say. If you want an opportunity to meet the people at the cutting edge of sustainability and innovation in the built environment I suggest you attend the next event.'

      - Ed Dixon, Property Plan A Project Manager, Marks and Spencer
