Thanks for being a part of Purpose 2015!

LET’S DO GOOD BUSINESS, TOGETHER

It’s 2016 and the future belongs to businesses with purpose.

The kind of purpose that’s baked into the business model, from the kind of companies that solve problems, rather than create them. We’re about businesses with a healthy bottom line and a healthy perspective on what the world actually needs.

Held over two days, Purpose brings together the purpose-driven people – industry leaders, dreamers that do, and positive change-makers from B Corps, social enterprise and consciously capitalist companies.

At Purpose, we talk about reinventing business models, shifting corporate cultures and rewriting the role of brands and organisations. So come join our community and let’s make a purposeful difference.

21st century economics

If you look at politics today, it’s hard not to conclude the economy is being run for the benefit of big business. But there’s push back – a growing recognition of the failure of our existing systems to adequately account for everything that affects our well-being. To explore this topic, we’ll host a discussion of the changing measures of success, the new understanding of value and the glaring gaps in our current economic and accounting systems which have the potential to disrupt capitalism and even democracy.
