On 18th October 2018 5pm to 8.30 pm at 25 Charterhouse Square, London EC1M 6AE, England, this year’s conference focuses on how business can engage with communities and their values to drive ambitious positive change for the benefit of all.

Business has renewed its license to lead. Now is the time to use it.

As researched in the Edelman Trust Barometer 2018, trust in business is at its highest in years, and almost on a par with non-governmental organisations (NGOs). With increased trust comes greater expectation: society expects business to lead change, and the question is: “Where can business have the greatest impact on the society it serves?”

Businesses have to date mainly focused on specific, local projects through their corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities where they can quickly and simply assess the impact of their spend. But what if more businesses looked to work with each other and with the communities they serve to achieve something bigger? We believe that values provide the key to unlocking this bigger ambition. On World Values Day, we want to explore how businesses can engage with communities and their values, and what those bigger projects might be with community groups, business representatives and NGOs.

We’ll learn:

  • from the great example of the Living Wage initiative and how Citizens UK got it off the ground in collaboration with the community
  • from businesses who are taking their company values into reciprocal partnerships in the community
  • we’ll work together to identify other big ideas that businesses and communities could take on together
  • how you can translate the learnings into mutual benefit by supporting the community through your mission and values
