About

Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself ― Rumi

 

I have worked in sustainability for over 20 years now, working on every side of the fence.  I have worked as an environmental consultant in Asia, for large and small NGOs, for big brands on their sustainability teams and also as an independent sustainability consultant.  I am now writing about sustainability, in children’s books, in various comedy formats and in the press.

 

I have also been working on myself for many years, some years more successfully than others……

 

Please get in touch if you want to collaborate.

Soon after her arrival at Virgin Atlantic, Georgina succeeded in placing Sustainability high on the agenda. Georgina is easy to work with as she brings plenty of knowledge, energy and enthusiasm to her projects. This leads to a strong joint commitment to achieve and deliver meaningful results for everyone

Georgina is one of the most inspired and inspiring people I’ve had the pleasure to work with. Always smiling but by no means afraid to get the bit between her teeth, she was as popular with her clients as she was with colleagues, and her integrity, insight and enthusiasm consistently resulted in both great work and great fun. I have no hesitation in recommending her.

It is not easy making an impact when on a short term contract, but Georgina hit the ground running, quickly made a great impression on the important influencers throughout the business, and developed ideas to drive the CSR strategy forward. I would recommend Georgina as a dynamic, experienced consultant.

Georgina is an inspiring and dynamic professional. Her breadth of knowledge in sustainability and the NGO & commercial sectors was a differentiator for us.  Her expertise and business acumen enabled us to focus on how we could develop more strategic partnerships with appropriate companies.  She is also a fantastic mentor who was motivating and fun.  Her enthusiasm and drive meant she was a pleasure to work with and I would have no hesitation in recommending Georgina to any charity who’s looking for a fresh and innovative approach.

Georgina was a huge help to Plan Zheroes in getting us to focus on our future direction and be realistic about what we might expect to receive in what timeframe. She planned and led an extremely entertaining and thought provoking afternoon for the board and interested volunteers wherein she challenged our strategic plans drawing on her considerable depth of domain knowledge.

Georgina chaired a masterclass for ITF on sustainable production attended by senior representatives of some of our key member companies including the Shine Group (Kudos, Princess & Dragonfly), IMG, Hartswood, Baby Cow and Icon plus representatives from NBC Universal at BAFTA.  She gave a really compelling opener for why all the production companies needed to be embedding sustainability into their TV production work.  She then chaired the rest of the session, and made it fun, interesting and above all, straight forward so that our member companies were really engaged on the issue after the session. I would highly recommend Georgina for training/engagement work and we hope to work with her again in the future

Georgina helped us to develop a comprehensive sustainability policy and action plan which enabled us to cut our carbon footprint in half on our production of Peter Grimes on Aldeburgh beach, which was a very important element in our production funding.  Her advice was straightforward and the solutions we came up with together were effective.   We have always tried to work in a ‘green’ way on our productions before, but working with Georgina enabled us to find concrete expressions of our previously somewhat woolly good intentions.

Georgina’s passion and amazing spirit created enthusiasm and energy behind our vision. Her commercial sense and determination meant that we got things done. Georgina’s expertise helped to guide our people to the best solutions to our sustainability challenges and delivered leading and innovative results. She helped us think more strategically about community investment and how to engage our staff and our customers in what we are trying to achieve. She also happens to be a lot of fun!

Georgina Stevens has worked with us over the past year supporting the development of our approach to Corporate Partnerships and helping us to determine how we can build mutually beneficial partnerships. Georgina has immense energy and drive and it has been really enjoyable working with her. She has been great at challenging our thinking and bringing new ideas to the table and her experience within both the NGO and Private sector has been really valuable.

In preparation for our IPO, it was a strategic priority for SSP to analyse and improve our company wide sustainability strategy. Georgina not only conducted a full due diligence on our existing activities, but also highlighted opportunities for SSP around food waste reduction, energy efficiency, governance, sustainable procurement and stakeholder engagement. Her advice was straightforward, effective and invaluable. The IPO proved to be a great success!

Georgina is one of the most truly inspirational business people I have ever met.   She has the credibility and track record in influencing companies and making projects happen that few people ever develop. She spoke at a Firm Beliefs dinner and held everyone awe struck – she is that brilliant – and Firm Beliefs/Firm Elite is full of very experienced business people who have seen it all and we still talk about the “Georgina dinner” and how brilliant it was!

Georgina’s support to BAFTA, who oversee a pan-industry consortium on environmental sustainability, has been exceptional. From advising on day-to-day activity to scoping large-scale creative re-imagination; Georgina’s professional, fun and well-informed approach has been invaluable to both the operational and creative strands of the consortium’s activity
