Martin Brown, Fairsnape
As the founder of Fairsnape Advocacy and Consulting, and as a built environment strategist, I am committed to enabling success within organisations - focusing on organisational improvement, bidding, collaborative working, sustainability, social responsibility and social media.
An international career spans main contracting, project management, facilities management and business improvement leadership.
Now, as an independent consultant and strategist I help a wide range of organisations across the built environment sector, including individuals and organisations wishing to use social media and collaborative working to improve business performance. As the UK Living Building Challenge ambassador, we are bringing a new, deep green thinking into the UK to challenge current sustainability approaches.
As an experienced blogger, I comment on built environment issues through award winning blog at www.fairsnape.com and also contribute to many other blogs and media sources, including Guardian Sustainability Business and CSRWire. You can also find me on twitter
I present and speak on collaborative working, sustainability, social media and organisational social responsibility themes and often represented in top influential sustainability lists such as the Eco Build 100 influential list, and the Top 50 CSR Green Birds List
In 2008 we co-founded www.Be2camp.comBe2camp, a social media and web2 advocacy for built environment sustainability and collaborative working. BE2 now supports and 'web enables' a growing number of organisations, awards and events.
