Pen founded Geo Mission Ltd after leading the successful Catlin Arctic Survey 2009.
Geo Mission is a pioneering environmental sponsorship organisation. It creates and manages partnerships between businesses and natural science research programmes addressing the major environmental questions of our time. It also designs and delivers the resources and facilities in the field for the scientists.
The emerging environmental sponsorship sector offers proven and powerful marketing and communications opportunities for businesses and brands, notably in support of the sustainability agenda.
As the impacts of our activities on Earth become more evident, it has never been more important for the global community to understand how nature’s interconnected systems and processes, and the life they support, works. This improved understanding will enable us to manage our relationship with the planet’s resources more sustainably.
Scientific exploration of the natural world generates dramatic, multi-faceted, and valuable content, which can be directed to shift the perceptions and responses of a sponsor’s stakeholders, in alignment with strategic objectives.
Presenting Duke of Edinburgh Gold Awards at Holyrood Palace
Invited to present Gold Awards to young Scots, I found myself overnighting the night before, just a few hundred yards from Holyrood Palace and the adjacent Scottish Parliament building. Skies were overcast and threatening liquid deployment. More happily HM The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh were in the middle of their annual Royal Week based in Holyrood, and spirits were un-dampened amongst the 300 Gold Award recipients, each with their two guests.
