The Better Business Summit is for anyone wanting to make a positive difference through the work that they do. 

Bringing together hundreds of Purpose Driven Business Owners on Thursday 19th December to discuss new ideas, connect and create new relationships that will allow everyone attending to create better businesses. 

The programme is split over two areas, and today we are announced the topics we are covering in the Main Lecture Hall Sessions. 

Our second stage is our Radicals Stage. Based in the exhibition hall, it's going to really challenge some of the topics and ideas around impact driven business. More on that soon. 

Till then, check out what we will be discussing and debating on the day, and if it feels like something you want to be part of, make sure to get your ticket now. 

We’ve decided to split the day in the lecture hall into Seed, Feed and Grow. This is to help you:  

Seed new ideas, 

Feed your imagination 

Grow your business, impact and the better business movement. 

We’ll be talking about a range of innovative new ideas and approaches and discussing how we can create systemic change through collective action, education and support. 

Find out more about the sessions below and If you haven’t already bought your ticket, make sure to buy it now. 

SEED SESSIONS

Leading the line

The world we work in has changed over the last 2.5 years and many working environments are different places to the ones we left in March 2020. As we learn to navigate remote and hybrid working, what does that mean for future leaders? What are the qualities that we need to build responsible, resilient, future-proofed businesses and how do we seed these ideas? How do we make sure that people with lived experience of social issues are able to contribute to solving them? What is the next generation demanding from the businesses it supports? And how do we make sure that entrepreneurs now and in the future have the skills to take us forward?  

How much does it cost to be a Better Business? 

We’re approaching a cost-of-living crisis that will soon impact anyone earning under £30k. But we’re reluctant to talk about money; how to get it, what it means and what things really cost. How do we communicate the ‘true’ costs of products and services to people? How do we make access to money more equal? And can new technology and fintech address inequalities?

How to make your Brand have meaning

Now, more than ever, consumers expect the brands they buy from to stand for something. Yet, at the same time, audiences are increasingly savvy about greenwashing, sport washing and other fluffy distractions. So how do brands decide where to make their stand? And should they? How do you start carving out an activist streak? And how do you make sure it fits in with your wider strategy? Or, indeed, should you? What are the pros and what are the pitfalls?

FEED SESSIONS

Reimagining Capitalism

Profit is vital to businesses. Without the sustainability that generating a profit brings, no brilliant idea or life-changing intervention will survive. But what a business chooses to do with those profits is the key difference. At a time when energy and water profits are going through the roof, we ask what profit is for? Should we cap director and employee salary multiples? We hear from some businesses doing brilliant things with their profits. And ask how we can each make more impact – both individually, and collectively.

How to pop your Filter Bubble

Ideas come from all over; but most of us exist in a relative bubble. How do we acknowledge the structural inequalities that mean that growth and opportunities aren’t open to all? And how can we address them to make our workplaces more diverse, empathetic and intelligent? 

GROW SESSIONS

How to REALLY Change the World

What have we learnt today? And how can we take action now to create change? What are the quick wins and ways of working that promote change and where is our energy best spent if we want to make a difference in the world? 

The Better Business Summit is for anyone wanting to make a positive difference through the work that they do. 

Bringing together hundreds of Purpose Driven Business Owners on Thursday 19th January at Manchester Met University Business School to discuss new ideas, connect and create new relationships that will allow everyone attending to create better businesses.
