Establishing your own socially-responsible & sustainability principles and exploring how to apply these to define your business, brand or personal ethos to develop informed strategies and goals.
This post-talk workshop will focus on considering the issues relevant to you in relation to each other to help you define and rank your key priorities for developing robust strategies for effecting positive, impactful change.
Part Three: Map Your Route to a Sustainable Future:
How embracing appropriate sustainable principles and practices not only re-enforces your business ethos and message, but helps provide a firm foundation for future innovation, builds resilience and stability and keeps pace with your consumers’ values and expectations- and ahead of legislation- trail blaze or you may trail behind to your detriment.
Focusing on your key objectives, this final workshop will ask you to map your route to a sustainable future- reflecting on your current position, where you have made progress and most importantly; the position you intend to reach in the short, mid and long term.
