Dates: Sunday 10 July 2022 - Tuesday 12 July 2022

peter lennonlouisa lennonAs the retreat leader drafts this summary in mid-2021, weather events around the globe have come together to demonstrate that going green is an urgent imperative, no longer a muddied issue or a nice-to-have. Many people have long accepted that we all have a duty as custodians of our planet. But they did not know how they individually could use their money to help. Or feared, incorrectly, that investing for sustainability means monetary loss. This retreat is for all people of goodwill to gain a grounding in the world of investment generally, the information they need to design a particular investment strategy that suits them, and to discover the financial power available to them to use for good.

Peter Lennon is a trained trainer with twenty-five years' experience as mentor and life coach - at home, at work and in personal transformation workshops. Those around him say his style is not to lecture or try to present people with his own ideas for their live, but rather to sense the questions to ask that will open them to their own possibilities. He brings insight, attention and commitment to the work. In professional life he was a schoolmaster, then a glaciologist working in Antarctica on early climate research, then an IT consultant and an instructor for forty-three years, so far.

Louisa Lennon is young, enthusiastic, full of heart and cares deeply about the well-being of the people around her and of our ecosphere. After graduating as a top academic achiever from the University of Pretoria she joined a major South African insurance company as a Trainee Financial Adviser and quickly became an investment expert, with a leaning towards ethical use of funds. She holds a Level 3 Toastmasters award. She is Peter Lennon’s daughter.
