This conversation is recorded from Glasgow during the COP26 and the Business Fights Poverty Climate Justice Summit.

Gib Bulloch, intrapreneur, business influencer and founder of Craigberoch Business Decelerator joins us in Glasgow at COP26 to share his thoughts on why business needs to care more deeply about their people, how connecting with our environment and slowing down will create the energy and space for the breakthrough innovations much needed to solve the climate crisis.

Gib grew up a stone’s through from Glasgow on the small island of Bute. After 25 years in business, including setting up the award winning Accenture Development Partnerships, a corporate social enterprise that provides development sector organisations access to Accenture’s top people, knowledge and assets on a not-for-profit basis, and which delivered quarter of a billion dollars’ worth of services across 70 countries in its first decade – Gib returned to Bute to decelerate. Craigberoch Decelerator creates a platform for social innovation, operating at the nexus of business, the arts, the environment and well-being.
During our conversation Gib reflects on what COP26 means to Glasgow and shares why he doesn’t think we have yet created the conditions required to step into a sustainable future – before sharing what it will take.

As Gib explains: “Slowing down helps us to tap into our innate creativity and desire for purpose—to drive transformation in ourselves, within organisations and in the world around us.”
