Held Annually in the Welsh countryside, The Do lectures are all about getting a handful of speakers together in one place, in the hope that they may inspire you to go Do something. To give you the tools and the desire to change the things you care about. The lecturers are an eclectic mixture of innovators, artists, adventurers, entrepreneurs, politicians and campaigners. The speakers are chosen from the world of business, environment, food, social, education, sport and the internet. The underlining theme for the talks is the ideas (and the people behind them) that go and change things.
