5×15 is an initiative of Rosie Boycott, Daisy Leitch and Eleanor O’Keeffe. They produce evenings of inspiration and entertainment for some of the world’s leading organisations and some of the world’s most discerning audiences.
Last night 5x15 hosted the topic 'Dogs' at the Royal Geographical Society in South Kensington with five fantastic speakers delivering an evening of pure genius! We were in the presence of Barny Revill a television director who has filmed in some of the earth's most extreme locations throughout his career. Recently producing 'The Secret Life of Dogs'.
Meg Rosoff the multi-award winning author of How I Live Now, Just In Case, What I Was, The Bride's Farewell, There Is No Dog, Moose Baby and Picture Me Gone. She is the author of numerous children's books, though their appeal is widespread.
Peter Gorbing the Chief Executive of Dogs for Good, a charity that brings trained dogs and people together to help them overcome specific challenges. It offers three core services – assistance dogs, family dogs and community dogs.
Helen Kirwan-Taylor a journalist, artist and dog mother who adopted a cairn terrier, Wilson, which has come to play a central role in her, and her family's, life, a role which goes further than that of most pets.
John Bradshaw is a biologist who founded and directs the world-renowned Anthrozoology Institute, based at the University of Bristol. He has been studying the behaviour of domestic dogs and their owners for over twenty-five years, and is the author of many scientific articles, research papers and reviews, as well as the bestselling In Defence of Dogs, Cat Sense and The Trainable Cat.
Wild at Heart Foundation were lucky enough to be invited along. We hosted an area selling our wonderful Limited Edition sweatshirts and were able to educate the audience about our exciting projects ahead and our beautiful dogs currently available for adoption.
The night was a great success and we were thrilled to take part in such a genius initiative. If you would like to find out more about 5x15 you can visit their website to see all of their upcoming events!
