READ THE WRAP UP

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.

Purpose is the coming together of purpose-driven people. It’s by application only and over two days you’ll get to meet, learn from and be inspired by the best in the industry. The people who are doing good and doing it incredibly well.

We’re going to talk about reinventing business models, shifting corporate cultures and rewriting the role of brands and organisations to be purpose driven. This is the event for connecting, meeting and learning from like minded people – so join us.
