Talk of “purpose”, “sustainability” and business as “a force for good” – it is for real or just rhetoric? The common ground between those who believe in the impact of purposeful business and those who question it, is a desire for authenticity; the recognition that we need to move beyond the rhetoric of purpose towards embedding it meaningfully and consistently across businesses.
We need an honest discussion about how this can be done, recognising where progress is being made and where actions are falling short. Join an invited audience of 300 professionals and practitioners working toembed purpose authentically within business. Engage with peers from leading global companies, civil society and government who are pioneering new ways to harness companies' products, services, value chains, and voice to have a positive social impact. This one-day event, supported by GSK, Unilever and Visa, will combine inspiring plenaries with practical deep-dive knowledge zones focused on: partnerships, women's economic empowerment, corporate social innovation, responsible supply chains, and purpose. The event will be preceded by a Welcome Dinner on 10 July at the beautiful St John's College.
