Thank you for agreeing to speak at the International Stewardship Forum. We appreciate you taking the time and making the effort to be involved. We just wanted to share some information to help keep you informed as the forum develops and help you make the most of it.

The main landing page for the forum is We would appreciate it if you could link to this site when you share information about the forum. Please use ‘GlobalPSC‘ as shorthand for our name if you reference us. We are @GlobalPSC on Twitter and Facebook. Event hashtags include #productstewardship, #StewardshipForum18 and #StewardshipInsights18. We appreciate all tweets, posts and likes, and will gladly help share your involvement. Early Bird rates will be available for another two days. Discounted rates are available for GlobalPSC members, forum speakers and confirmed OEH Sustainability Advantage partners up to the start of the forum.

We have set up an event app to help provide up-to-date information to participants, while minimising printing. Details for accessing the app will be sent to registered attendees. Just go to in your web browser and enter the Event ID: 3008 – 1136 to access the app.

Preliminary program details have been included, and speakers bios linked to applicable sessions. We have been coordinating with our Steering Committee members and session moderators to help set the content and ensure high calibre speakers. Moderators will be in touch with you to help refine content and presentations. We encourage you to be as forthright as possible and to help share strengths, weaknesses, barriers and opportunities of the content on which you are presenting. Prepare to challenge and be challenged, particularly in panel sessions. We encourage access and engagement.

If you have not already done so, please provide a high resolution head shot and speaker bio. Please check to ensure you’re happy with how you are presented in the Speakers section. We welcome any changes you want to make. We also have the option of making your email address and phone number available to attendees. Our default is to not share such info without permission, so if you would like to make these details available, please let me know.

We have added a number of downloads to the app, and can tie downloadable materials to relevant sessions. Please provide other materials that would be of use to attendees, including reference materials and links.

A 20% discount off the book Product Stewardship in Action by Dr Helen Lewis is available to attendees; details are in the Downloads section of the app.

We’ve had good uptake so far and will be announcing several new sponsors in the near future, though we still have sponsorship opportunities available. We are happy to tailor sponsorships to maximise value. Anyone interested can contact me on or +61 417 445 644.
