This is not business as usual
The information age is here; the world is plugged in, connected and sharing knowledge like never before.
We are facing our economic, social, environmental and political problems not in isolation, but as a global community. The modern consumer cares about more than just pennies and pounds - they care about your supply chain, how and who you hire, what motivates your decision making, and how you’re giving back.
This year, we'll be exploring three key themes:
A Sustainable Future | Tech for Good | People Behind the Purpose
A Sustainable Future
Sustainability and environmental considerations are fundamental for businesses to prosper in the long term. With the global movement towards conscious consumerism gaining huge momentum, brands whose offerings are aligned with the mindset of the public are affirming their presence in the market for the foreseeable future.
The world order is changing; to thrive, businesses should be prepared for shifts in resources, ecosystems and economies.
We’ll be exploring this topic across its many facets, including impact investing, which combines traditional investment strategy with philanthropic values, the sustainable development goals and using circular models for success.
Tech for good
Technology has the potential to become one of the most effective and widespread forces for good on the planet. In a few short decades, the technology boom has revolutionised the way we live. Now, even slow-moving legacy sectors and old methods are giving way to agile, accessible, tech-based solutions that offer convenience and speed like we’ve never seen before.
In contrast, the meteoric rise of automation and digitisation has opened concerns about data protection and privacy, ethical innovation and the unintentional effects of AI. How do we tackle these challenges? And what is coming next?
People Behind the Purpose
A new working mindset has been sparked across the generations; people want to pursue more meaningful work, have more freedom, and apply their expertise to companies that share their values. Provided with the the right environment and tools, your team has the power to drive forward innovation and ultimately deliver on the overarching purpose of the business.
Your people bring with them a huge diversity of backgrounds, experiences, and mental and physical needs. Recognising and appreciating these unique differences is the key to unlocking their best work.
From pay equality to workplaces to wellbeing: let’s reimagine how business looks to every person at every level.
Impact Summit 2019 will take place at Glasgow’s SWG3 warehouse, a multi-disciplinary space that has become a hub for all things creative.
We’re taking you out office, out of your routine, and into a visionary setting.
