I have read quite extensively about ESG and Sustainability, and I thought I had full grasp of the issues and the urgency of what is needed to be done until I attended Rosalind’s Masterclass presentation. Literature about ESG tend to be rather too technical but Rosalind made it profoundly easy to understand and appreciate the implications of what will be the inevitable consequences if we fail as corporates to help solve societal problems. It was clearly a professional presentation, delivered with clarity and conviction. I have since recommended an oil palm plantation company to send candidates to her scheduled programmes and I will continue to encourage more companies to show greater interest in ESG.

Thank you, Rosalind, for adding to my knowledge and excitement of ESG and the need for corporates to put it at the very core of strategy.”
