Join our corporate conversations

A series of 30-min virtual conversations with people at the corporate purpose coalface.

Why this, why now?

Purpose is the new frontier for performance and competition in today’s business landscape, and failing to adapt is risking being left behind.

To navigate these choppy waters, the links between corporate purpose and profitability must be clear. Can they co-exist? The evidence says they can and they must.

No one has all the answers nor is there a single prescribed way to navigate the changing business environment, however our forums bring to light the decisions shaping the corporate purpose roadmap.

Curated in-house conversations?

There are times when you want to supercharge your people with new ideas – or get your messaging across in a professional way.

We work with companies to help them deliver events and content that aligns their purpose stories with their strategies, whether it is positioning for change or communicating work-in-progress.

What better than to hear it first hand in an expertly curated forum?
