Inspiring leaders to solve the world's problems

As part of our mission to bring commercial business skills to the charitable sector, we want to engage business leaders with the fact that you have a vital role to play in solving the challenges of today’s society. To this end, we are holding a series of inspirational talks delivered by amazing leaders from the business world, so that we might inspire conscious leadership.

At our first event, we are delighted to be joined by one of the UK’s best respected entrepreneurs, Julian Richer, CEO of Richer Sounds, who will be speaking about his new book The Ethical Capitalist and giving tips on how to motivate a workforce.

Drawing on four decades of hands on management experience, Julian argues that ethically run businesses are invariably more efficient, more motivated and more innovative than those that only care about the bottom line.

He’ll be sharing his insight on simple tools that the best leaders use to make their businesses fair, revealing how you can follow suit. He also poses some big questions about capitalism’s purpose in modern society:

  • When should (and shouldn’t) the state intervene in the workings of commercial enterprise?
  • What does business as a whole owe back to the wider community?
  • Is the relationship between leaders of big corporations and politicians too cosy, and if so, what can be done about it?

We are inviting CEO's, Directors and Legal Experts who are leading innovative businesses forward to attend this exclusive event. With limited spaces available, make sure you book your place today.

We were born from the passionate belief that businesses hold all of the tools needed to solve the world’s problems. By unlocking this, we could help charities to grow faster and have a deeper impact on their communities and causes.
