As a business owner, director or senior manager you probably feel you don’t have the time or energy to consider whether you’re making a positive social or environmental impact.  You’re probably focussed on the bottom line, surviving and hopefully thriving.

We invite you to pause, take some time out and re-consider how you and your business can become a leader in the field.

During this thought provoking and action focused masterclass our speakers will introduce you to a way of thinking that makes sense for people and planet and profit.

During the morning you will:

  • Hear the business case for becoming a responsible business
  • Understand how to use the UN Global Goals as a framework to align positive social and environmental impact with your business strategy
  • Hear stories of best practice in action from businesses who give practical insights into the challenges and benefits of becoming a truly responsible business
  • Be part of a live case study that provides insights, ideas and evidence of why turning your business purpose into a purpose for good is simply good business sense

Take part in practical exercises to develop your thinking so that you leave with an action plan for change and positive impact

There is limited parking available at the college but Castleview Park & Ride (located just of junction 10 of the M9 Motorway) is only a 10 minute walk away.  To find the site in google maps or in-car satellite navigation, enter the postcode FK9 4TW.
