A series of short courses for sustainability professionals by sustainability professionals
Organisations need to become more responsive to shifting societal expectations, better able to establish trusting relationships with stakeholders, and open and accountable.
This business short will discuss how sustainability leaders can effectively drive their agenda through the organisation from the top down. What are the most effective ways for sustainability leaders to engage corporate boards to engage on CSR issues? How can CSOs better prepare directors for effective dialogues with shareholders on such topics? We will examine new leadership competencies, and how to fully enable senior managers, executive teams and boards to lead with sustainability in mind.

Sustainable Business Shorts are Guardian Sustainable Business' new series of short courses for sustainability professionals by sustainability professionals.
Sustainable Business Shorts combine advice and examples from the very best campaigns delivered by leading brands with hands on group exercises, facilitation and a little bit of fun.
Split into two sections the first, show & tell, brings you best practice on how to do it from those who have been there. We'll also get them to tell you what they've learned about how not to do it and what to do if it all goes wrong.
The second, experience & experiment, brings an expert practitioner to facilitate a workshop session where you get to simulate real life scenarios.
