Ready to re-emerge with a purpose?
Abstract
Moderated panel where we zoom into the core of businesses. People, an organisation’s purpose and their societal and sustainable responsibilities. Responsible practices with people and our planet at the heart of the organisation. With sustainability now being a strategic business imperative, to respond to investor, client, employee and regulatory needs, how do you make the steps to accelerate? And how do you center your team around your purpose, with the increased globalisation and increased remote working? How do we re-emerge with a purpose?
