Event description

Description

The Jersey Good Business Charter is pleased to present the second in our series of Network gatherings for 2019.

In this event, we focus on the “community and society” segment of the charter’s five dimensions, with the theme of how a good business is one which contributes towards the creation of a better society. Our international speaker and local panellists will be exploring this theme in dialogue.

Our Keynote is Lord Stephen Green of Hurstpierpoint. Lord Green was The Minister of State for Trade and Investment and before that Group Chairman for HSBC Group Globally. Lord Green is now a sought after speaker internationally and serves as the Chairman of the Natural History Museum.

We also have a panel of local experts who will reflect from their experiences in the Jersey business, government and third sectors and offer practical guidance for how business can contribute to Jersey society.


As the 21st Century progresses, the compact between businesses and the communities that give them sustenance is being redrawn. The most successful business of today are those who can activity point to their contribution to wider stakeholder interest.

High profile recent converts to this way of thinking include Nike and Unilever. What is perhaps less obvious is that many businesses have been deeply engaged in their communities for a very long time – including business in Jersey.

Lord Green will lay out some of the best and worst examples of corporate social engagement from his time in industry and government. He will then introduce a set of principles which should guide businesses as they seek to move beyond superficial engagement and into meaningful and integrated participation in the building of healthy and flourishing communities.

We will also hear from three local business leaders who have designed and executed brilliant and impactful business initiatives to enhance their local community.

Learn with us how the currently dominant business mindset not only doesn’t deliver results, it short changes communities.

Hear about some examples of how innovative businesses are beginning to do things different with spectacular results.

We hope that people from all level of business will take something away for this event that is useful for personal and business transformation.
