His 21st book, ‘Tickling Sharks: How We Sold Business on Sustainability’ (Fast Company Press), launches in May 2024.

John Elkington said: “As someone who has been described as an ‘Ambassador from the Future,’ it’s a particular honour to be invited to become an Ambassador for the Fellowship, which first entered my life in 1981. The Churchill Fellowship was life changing, giving me opportunity to shape my thinking about the future and the emerging role of business and markets. Among other things, I look forward to discussing the impact of COP28 and the importance of promoting the exchange of knowledge and experience between the UK and the rest of the world.”

Lucy Parker, Trustee and Chair of the Churchill Fellowship Advisory Council, said: “We are thrilled John has accepted the role of Ambassador, and grateful for his commitment to helping the Churchill Fellowship spread our network and reach. We look forward to welcoming the community to this event which is a testimony to our celebration of the potential of personal leadership and the international outlook that is so central to the Fellowship.”

“In Conversation With…” is a new series of unique lectures curated by the Churchill Fellowship where Churchill Fellowship Ambassadors discuss pertinent topics of the day with another Churchill Fellow, followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
