In collaboration with Business in the Community (BITC), we’ve brought together a panel of high profile business leaders who understand only too well the benefits that working in partnership to tackle the key issues facing society can bring to both your business and the local community.
Join us as we hear from Stephen Howard (chief executive of BITC), Brian Manning (group chief executive of Esh Group) and Peter Walls (former chief executive of Gentoo) about why they believe a sharing and empowering culture brings the best out of their teams.
Running a responsible business is about how a business makes its money, not just how it spends its profit. It is about managing growth responsibly while reducing dependency on natural resources. It is about how business operates as an employer, supplier and customer, and how as a neighbour, it can help to create vibrant communities where people can flourish.
Sharing insight into the benefits their businesses have seen, our panel of experts will offer advice and guidance to help lead you down the path towards contributing to something bigger than yourself. After all, it’s not stars that triumph in business, it’s the team that works together with a clear, united purpose that wins out in the end.
The prosperity of business and society cannot succeed without each other, so if you’re interested in creating a company with a conscience that truly cares about the community in which it lives, come along and discover some new and imaginative ways to work.
