Stuart 'The Wildman' Mabbutt and William Mankelow (photographer) discuss in a conversational style how nature and business brought them together.

How after 6 years knowing and working together they have developed a collaboration that doesn't set limits on itself or them as individuals.

They'll explore how two very different personalities can work and develop together. They will explore the ups and down of the process, the people they have met along the way, and what they have learnt from each other.

They will riff around the question "What Is Success", and will reveal how after initially trying to develop a Cuckoo Hunt project/film, they are now developing a whole range of collaborations. These include The Peoples Countryside project, plus an experiential stage show 'Live and Unscripted' and, an art installation scaleable up to the O2 Arena in London. In addition, they are undertaking international research which will see them spending time with isolated cultures around the world, learning about how they live sustainably.

Ultimately find out how they plan to focus the collaboration on the worlds seas and oceans.

Special guests sometimes included and your chance to find out who is the expert and who is the layman.
