Event description

Description

We’re looking for people who have the energy, vision and enthusiasm to take their business to the next level.

Our ‘Sustainability in Action’ masterclass gives practical guidance to help you make your business more sustainable, exploring leadership skills to meet the challenges of a changing world. We’ll show you how to manage important social and environmental issues, demystifying the corporate jargon and giving you some great ideas to build in to the way you work.

The course will help you to lift business performance, save money and build a reputation as a responsible business. We cover the range of sustainability principles, exploring business challenges and resilience in the face of social, environmental and economic risks and opportunities; and bring in current examples of good (and not so good) practice.

We work together through a structured programme, including exercises and discussion, with simple tools designed to help you prioritise, take action and communicate your progress. We offer you the opportunity to review your action plan in person with the tutor after the course.

So if you are looking to build your skills as a business leader then sign up! We will equip you with new capabilities to benefit your bottom line, help you bid for public sector contracts and build your reputation as a responsible business.

Course overview

The half day masterclass will cover:

  • Why is sustainability important? How to develop a compelling business case and deliverable action plan for sustainability

  • How to get the best results: systems vs initiatives, focus and prioritisation, action planning, engaging stakeholders and employees in your sustainability journey
