Thomas Panton.

 

Thomas has been building his reputation in the sustainable industry for the last couple of years.

 

During his undergrad in International Relations and Politics he worked for international NGO Greenpeace UK as a speaker, campaigner, and activist. After graduating Thomas went on to form the first company to be paid to collect leftover festival tents to be upcycled and reused; in their first year they were employed by Oxfordshire's largest music festival, Truck Festival, and managed to collect over 85% of the leftover tents, something that had never been done before.

Moving forward, Thomas is now director of two companies pioneering circular economy solutions in the events industry, Festovers and Pitched For You. The latter of which offers the first and only patented tent and service as a fully circular solution to the leftover tent crisis. He is also founder of a sustainable ecommerce start up based in Norwich.

Away from business, Thomas is now studying an MSc in Climate Change and International Development to further his knowledge in the sector.  He has also been asked onto BBC Radio Oxford as an "expert" in the field of sustainable solutions within the events industry, and has been asked by other events to speak about sustainable solutions and green economic recovery as well.

Thomas hopes to now further consolidate his position as a leader in this field by speaking at events and inspiring other people to take action.

Please don't hesitate to contact Thomas directly to discuss any opportunities for speaking at events in the future.
