An informal online meet up sharing better business experience, and discussing small changes you can make to have a positive impact.
About this event
Business is changing – just like in our personal lives, there are things we can all do to make a difference. From the way we do business, to who we work with and how; small changes collectively build to a bigger impact.
Join us on Tuesday 14th June at our informal online event where we’ll be sharing stories and discussing ideas over a cuppa about how businesses have made, often small changes which have had a positive impact.
We’re championing change and inspiring others to think about what they could do to make a positive impact, through their work, with stakeholders and locally – and build a ‘better business’.
Small achievable changes add up to make a move towards business for good. Could you work with more local suppliers and partners? How does your business manage waste? Do you provide employee benefits? How do you audit your finances?
Focusing efforts towards being socially and environmentally conscious within your business is an achievable target for any business. Whether you’re looking to ensure your business is conscious of the secondary effects of its actions or you’re looking to take it to the next level and become BCorp certified*, this event will enlighten achievable routes you can take to have a positive impact.
*Working to create a better environment for all lines of business, BCorp is a network of businesses who believe in change for good – for more information about BCorp visit https://bcorporation.uk/about-b-lab-uk/our-strategy/theory-of-change/.
