Going virtual this year on Wednesday 12 May, clients and guests of Weatherbys Private Bank will once more get the chance to hear from a line-up of world-renowned influential speakers to explore some of the world’s most challenging and exciting issues across business, health and wellbeing, and the environment.

First held in 2018, the Bank’s Creating The Future (CTF) aims to stimulate discussion about the important issues that will affect future generations. Previous guests have included James Thornton, founder of ClientEarth, Extinction Rebellion’s Gail Bradbook, and the journalist who broke the Cambridge Analytica story, Carole Cadwalladr.

Roger Weatherby, Chief Executive at Weatherbys Private Bank, says: ‘Creating The Future typifies what the Bank stands for. We are about being a trusted adviser to our clients, helping to stimulate discussion and debate about important issues that will affect them and future generations of their families.’

This year, the bank, together with help from Mike Dickson, founder of Our Generous Gene, has brought together three renowned climate change experts, including former Unilever CEO Paul Polman, and Nigel Topping, a member of the COP26 leadership team. They will discuss the progress that has been made since the 2015 Paris Agreement’s challenge to net zero by 2050. They will argue that the time for talking is over and explain why we are in a decisive decade where we must act to avoid humanitarian and planetary disaster.
