A Conversation with Tessa Tennant

Join us for a conversation with Tessa Tennant; an evening filled with stimulating conversations about a wide variety of topics. For her entire career Tessa Tennant has worked to 'green' the financial services industry.  She co-founded the United Kingdom's first green investment fund, the Jupiter Ecology Fund in 1988 and is on the board of the country's Green Investment Bank.  She has been centrally involved in developing the industry in the UK and overseas especially in Asia.  In recognition of her work she has won several awards and was the first non-US citizen to be given the Joan Bavaria Award in 2012.  She thinks and 'does' global, while also acting very local with her husband, running an upland farm and property enterprise in the Scottish Borders.

Tessa will be interviewed by a special guest of the Library Society and will answer interesting questions in a conversation format.
