Event description
Join us for this evening event to find out how you can be the change and be the future...by becoming a B Corp.

About this event

Together, we can be a force for good.

Being a B Corp means that you are honestly committed to creating real environmental and societal benefits.

People want to work for, buy from, and invest in businesses they believe in. The B Corp Certification is a powerful way to build trust and value for your organisation.

72% of the UK public think businesses should have a legal responsibility to the planet and people, alongside their profit aspirations.

Be the change by joining us to find out how you can become a B Corp business.

Expect informative talks, valuable networking opportunities and inspiring discussions to further support your ability to discover, collaborate and innovate.

More information to be announced.

If you purchase a physical ticket but the event is moved fully online, you can choose to have your ticket fully refunded or attend virtually with a partial-refund.

Andy Hawkins, B Corp Consultant, Future Leap

For many years companies have understood the need to measure and improve their Social & Environmental Impact. This session will overview B Corp and investigate why it is so necessary as well as looking at the how. You will come away with an action plan and ideas to help challenge and inspire.

Steve Fuller, Creative Head, The House

In 2006, The House took the decision to move away from the drinks industry and focus solely on clients with an overtly positive role in society. Since then, it has worked with (Prince’s Trust) Youth Business International, Fiskars (global consumer products company), Petainer (global recycled packaging manufacturer), Prima Dental (the world’s leading precision dental products manufacturer), Centrica (British Gas Solar) and Essilor (the world’s largest optical lens manufacturer).

The House became a B Corporation 4 years ago, joining companies like Ben & Jerry’s, Danone, Hootsuite and Kickstarter. The consultancy’s core competencies are purpose driven business strategy (what Steve likes to call purposeful advantage), values led leadership and organizational culture and inspiring brand stories – internal and consumer.

Karyn Williams, Head of Social Value at Stride Treglown, will be speaking on “B Corp, a business ethos which balances purpose with profit”.

Stride Treglown were welcomed into the B Corp movement earlier this year, the first major UK architecture practice to do so. B Corp certification ensures businesses place purpose ahead of profit and the rigorous evaluation process digs deep into your business operations, your social and environmental performance as well your wider relationships with clients and your supply chain. Hear more about our journey to B Corp Certification in this session.

Steve Fuller, Creative Head, The House

The House has worked with global and local brands for 25 years. It supports CEOs and business leaders who want to create a company that is a force for good. The consultancy’s founders had their own purpose journey, most notably, they gave up 70% of their turnover 15 years ago to focus on creating a business with impact.

As a roster agency for Diageo for over 10 years, The House developed brand and communication programmes that travelled the world – it was one of only a handful of agencies outside the U.S. to develop advertising for Jack Daniels as well as creating global promotional platforms like Mr Jack’s Birthday. The House created world-firsts technology for Smirnoff in World Duty Free and won awards for ground-breaking consumer web experiences.
