Welcome back to The Uptick! As the dust settles on the flurry of Christmas trading updates and we settle into the new year, we take a look back at the stories that defied the January blues.

This month we’ll be learning more about H&M’s new chief executive Helena Helmersson; hearing from Lush co-founder Mark Constantine about bird-watching, Greta Thunberg and how to start an ethical cosmetics revolution; taking a look at some of the tech trends that are tipped to take off in 2020; and getting Iceland boss Richard Walker’s two cents on why sustainability needs to go beyond a middle-class concern if it is to have real impact.
