Circular Brighton & Hove


Circular Brighton & Hove (CBH) is a multi-stakeholder network of individuals, SME’s, social enterprises, universities, faith groups, third sector organisations and companies. We have a diverse set of skills, experiences and contacts in local government, business, academia and society, living in the Greater Brighton Region. We are united by a common belief that the Circular Economy can have a positive impact, not only on the environment, but also on our society (by reducing poverty and strengthening communities) and our economy (by increasing resilience and supporting business).
Circular Brighton & Hove is a collaboration between two Brighton & Hove initiatives: Eco-Dinner Club and Circular Economy Club.

As a business and leadership coach, she helps people connect with the important stuff, make plans, eliminate the self-sabotage and collaborate more effectively with those around them. She also offers consulting services (communications, leadership development), building on the experience she gained working in international teams with Fortune 500 companies at Accenture for 18 years in France, Germany and the UK. She has recently teamed up with a local trainer to provide a series of productivity workshops and is about to launch one called “Saying No”! Sally sees the Circular Economy as a great way to get people to think differently and get creative in business and politics, and is on the delivery team of Circular Brighton & Hove to do just that.

What is the Circular Economy?

"A circular economy is an alternative to a traditional linear economy (make, use, dispose) in which we keep resources in use for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from them whilst in use, then recover and regenerate products and materials at the end of each service life."  WRAP
