The notion of purposeful business is attracting increasing attention at all level, from academia to boardrooms. From The British Academy’s recently published Principles for Purposeful Business to Anglian Water becoming the first water company to embed public interest at its core, there appears to be increasing awareness that the purpose of a company has to go beyond shareholder value.

Today we appear to be reaching a tipping point, when this interest in purposeful business is prompting organisations to call for company law reform and governance.

Join us in this webinar session during which we:

Explore new tools and initiatives to help organisation set up with a purpose beyond profit at their core; Share best practice tips and guidance from organisations of different sizes; Provide an update on corporate law and any anticipated changes to accommodate this transition to purpose led organisations.

Speakers included:

- Daniel Johns, Head of Public Affairs, Anglian Water;

- David Hunter, Consultant, Bates Wells

- Arnab Dutt, Chair, Social Value Policy Unit, Federation of Small Businesses.
