27 July 2021: The History of Parliament Trust, one of the premier authoritative research projects in British history, is delighted to introduce a new publication entitled 300 Years of Leadership and Innovation at Westminster Abbey on Wednesday, 22 September 2021. Patrick Sheehan, Founder and Managing Partner with ETF Partners, Europe’s leading sustainability venture capital firm, helped as an editorial partner in this defining and commemorative publication.
As one of the UK’s foremost leaders in venture capital and sustainable innovation, Patrick was asked by the team at St. James’s House and the History of Parliament Trust to share insights on the foundation and future of Europe’s sustainable innovation revolution.
In his feature piece, Patrick articulated, “The world has accepted there is a climate emergency, and businesses have realised they must become sustainable, or they will disappear.” Sheehan continued, “venture capital can and must be used to address the real-world problems around climate change, by investing in innovation. As a pioneer in the sustainable investment space, we continue to lead the conversation and action related to Sustainability Through Innovation.”
The publication and overarching campaign, launching in September, strive to highlight and thus celebrate instances of the latest leadership, innovation, and best practices across the political, cultural, societal, and commercial spheres.
Produced in partnership with leading publisher St James’s House and written by an editorial team of renowned, academics and award-winning authors, this visually appealing, fully illustrated, 600+ page hardback publication becomes available to the public to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the appointment of Britain’s first prime minister, Robert Walpole, in 1721, and the year of Her Majesty The Queen’s 95th birthday.
Honouring the best of British leadership, 300 Years of Leadership and Innovation showcases expertly written articles on historical figures responsible for shaping British society, past and present; from Walpole to Cromwell, Churchill to Blair, The Queen, and Prince Charles captains of industry.
